Sonali Bendre celebrated her birthday with husband Goldie Behl and son Ranveer on January 1, posting pictures from their visit to the Golden Temple in Amritsar in Punjab.
Sharing one of the pictures, she simply wrote “2020”. The picture seems to be from the day before and, in it, she poses with Goldie, Ranveer and another lady, possibly her mother-in-law. Her friends Shweta Bachchan Nanda wished her on her birthday while Maheep Kapoor left heart emojis in the comments section.
On Thursday, Sonali shared more pictures with her family and captioned them as, “gratitude”.
The family can be seen covered in woollens. Sonali has a grey cloth covering her head, while she also drapes a grey shawl around it. Both Goldie and Ranveer are in bright orange Sikh turbans in the pictures.
Sonali was diagnosed with cancer in 2018. She informed the world about it in July that year, writing a long post on social media. She had written how she was “taking this battle head on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me.”
Recalling her time in a New York hospital in November, she had recently written: “This day, last year... we were in New York at the hospital. Since then, the Bendre-Behls have identified two time periods - B.C. (Before Cancer) and A.C. (After Cancer). Lately, my motto has been to move on & keep trying new things, and detoxing and rejuvenating is on top of the list.”
Since her return from New York, Sonali is often spotted at various lectures and chat shows, talking about her experience of fighting cancer and turning into a motivational speaker.
