Actor Sonali Bendre has been all over the internet since she posted about her illness in July. She had been recently diagnosed with high-grade cancer that has now permeated. On the occasion of Friendship Day, Sonali posted about how she will be looking at life in a positive manner and fight against this disease and also is happy to share her journey along.

The actor, who is undergoing cancer treatment in New York, shared a delightful Friendship Day post along with a picture clicked by Hrithik Roshan. Bendre can be seen in her bald look while she is enjoying a drink with friends - Gayatri Oberoi and Suzanne Khan.

The actress as elegant as ever wrote: This is me. And in this moment, I am really happy. People give me strange looks when I say that now, but it's true and I'll tell you why. I am now paying attention to every moment, looking for every opportunity to find joy and #SwitchOnTheSunshine. Yes, there are moments of pain and low energy, but I am doing what I like, spending time with people I love, and feeling very loved and happy. I am extremely grateful to my friends, my pillars of strength, who at a moment's notice, arrived to be with me and help me through this. In between their busy schedules they find time to visit, call, message, FaceTime... basically never leaving a moment for me to feel alone. Thank you for showing me what true friendship is. #HappyFriendshipDay, ladies. Blessed to have you all in my life (including the ones not in the picture... You know who you are) @gayatrioberoi @suzkr 
P.S. Nowadays I spend far less time getting ready because I don't have to fuss over my hair! 😜#BaldIsBeautiful #FindThePositive#OneDayAtATime

A few days back, Goldie Behl, husband of Sonali Bendre, took to his Twitter to share the actor's health update. He had written, “Thank you all for the love and support for Sonali… she is stable and is following her treatment without any complications. This is a long journey but we have begun positively.”

Few days after Sonali announced about her cancer diagnosis, she shared an adorable video of her chopping her long hair to a shorter length. She looked all the more gorgeous with her short hair and very much the chic!

In the words of my favourite author Isabel Allende, “We don't even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward. In times of tragedy, of war, of necessity, people do amazing things. The human capacity for survival and renewal is awesome.” The outpouring of love I’ve received in the last few days has been so overwhelming… and I’m especially grateful to those of you who shared stories of your experiences in dealing with cancer, whether it was your own or of loved ones. Your stories have given me an extra dosage of strength and courage, and more importantly, the knowledge that I’m not alone. Each day comes with its own challenges and victories and so for now, I’m taking this #OneDayAtATime. The only thing I’m trying to be consistent about is maintaining a positive outlook... literally #SwitchOnTheSunshine - it’s my way of dealing with this. Sharing my journey is also part of this process... I can only hope it reminds you that all is not lost and that someone, somewhere understands what you’re going through. 🤞🌞 Thank you @tomoarakawa for making this a chic transition from long to short!
