Actress Sonali Bendre was diagnosed with cancer in July 2018.
The 44-year-old actor-model wanted to be in control of her life story and decided to share her cancer battle with her followers on social media while she underwent treatment in New York.
“Life throws you a curve ball when you least expect it…” she wrote a post announcing the news to the world.
She kept her fans in loop since she believed it was important to be honest with them about her journey, including the pain.
“I wanted to be charge of my narrative from the start. When you are a public figure, there are so many narratives that it out there. And suddenly you lose hold of that narrative very quickly. It becomes a different thing all together,” the actor said at the India Today Conclave 2019.
“As I went through the process, I realised that there are so many others going to through it."
Through the ordeal, Sonali shared her photos with her followers.
