It has been nearly a week since Sonali Bendre issued an official statement on being diagnosed with cancer and getting treated in New York. On Tuesday afternoon, the actress posted a video in which she can be seen getting her long tresses cut. At one point, she can even be seen getting emotional about the considerable reduction in the length of her hair.
Apart from posting pictures of her new look, she also posted a message thanking her friends and fans for the outpour of love. Sonali wrote, “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…”
