Cancer Fighter Sonali Bendre Returns to Mumbai With her Husband Goldie Behl, Recovering Very Well

Actress Sonali Bendre Behl, who has been putting up a brave fight against metastatic cancer for months in New York, returned to Mumbai on Monday.

After 6 months of tough battle against cancer, actress Sonali Bendre finally made it to Mumbai on Monday. The cancer fighter was beaming with joy while welcoming paparazzi with a warming smile and gratitude at the airport.

The 43-year-old had undergone treatment for her metastatic cancer in New York. Though her fight against cancer is over, she will have to go for regular checkups and scans.

Her husband Goldie Behl who was accompanying her in the airport ensured that she was absolutely fine and is back for good. However, like any other patient, she will have to go for regular check-ups and scan to ensure that the deadly disease won't strike back.

"It's been six months and I would like to inform everybody that Sonali is doing good and she is back for good. She is recovering very well. Thank you all for the love and support. Her treatment is over, for now, Sonali is absolutely fine. Just like what happens in such diseases - regular checkups, regular scans - that we have to do since this disease can come back. For now there is nothing as such that she will have to go back for. I am very happy that she is back home. Like any other patient, she will have to go for regular checkups. She is a very strong and determined woman and I am very proud of her."

Earlier that day, Sonali made an announcement of her return via a social media post with a very long message and a photograph in which Sonali looked all set for the journey.

Sonali Bendre revealed about her diagnosis with "high-grade cancer" in July this year. The actress shared a lengthy note on her Instagram, in which she wrote that she did not see this coming.

"Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with high-grade cancer that has metastasized, which we frankly did not see coming."

With all the support from her family and friends, Sonali has remained positive throughout her battle against high-grade cancer in the first place.

“I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed. Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told. I decided I was safe. I was strong. I was brave. Nothing could vanquish me.” – Cheryl Strayed, Wild. Over the past couple of months, I have had good days and bad ones. There have been days when I’ve been so exhausted and in so much pain that even lifting a finger hurt. I feel like sometimes it’s a cycle… one that starts off with physical pain and leads to mental and emotional pain. The bad days have been many… Post chemo, post-surgery and the like… where even just laughing hurts. Sometimes it felt like it took everything I’ve had to push past it… a minute to minute battle with myself. I got through it knowing that even though I was fighting a long drawn out, draining battle… it was one that was worth the fight. It’s important to remember that we’re allowed to have those bad days. Forcing yourself to be happy and cheerful all the time serves no purpose. Who are we being fake and putting on an act for? I allowed myself to cry, to feel the pain, to indulge in self-pity… for a short while. Only you know what you’re going through and it is fine to accept it. Emotions aren’t wrong. Feeling negative emotions isn’t wrong. But after a point, identify it, recognize it and refuse to let it control your life. It takes an immense amount of self-care to get out of that zone. Sleep always helps, or having my favourite smoothie after chemo, or just talking to my son. For now, as my treatment continues… my visual focus remains to just get better and get back home. It’s yet another test… Student all my life… Learning all my life… #OneDayAtATime ūüď∑: @srishtibehlarya
