From being one of the most beautiful faces in the last decade of the 90s to being a supportive wife and a doting mother; Sonali Bendre has essayed varied roles in life, both on screen and off screen. A talented and loved actress; Sonali sent shockwaves not just across Bollywood but nationally, when she revealed that she was diagnosed with high-grade cancer.


And now; talking about her journey through the dreaded disease at the ‘India Today Conclave', the ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain' actress revealed her first step was to visit a psychiatrist because she thought she had done something wrong to welcome the painful problem. 

Opening up about the same; Sonali said," Everyone said, 'Your lifestyle was never like that. How did it happen to you?' I actually thought that it was me doing something wrong and that I have caused it. I went to a psychiatrist in New York. I was like, I don't understand what is happening to me. I'm not a negative person; I have a lot of positive thoughts. Am I being delusional? Do I actually have negative thoughts and I am burying it so deep in my subconscious that I don't realize it? I needed to understand what was happening to me."


The actress, however, revealed that it was the psychiatrist response to her that changed her life. Revealing what the psychiatrist said, Sonali was quoted saying," The line that he said is the hoarding for me in my life. He said, 'Sonali, cancer is caused by genetics or virus. If thoughts could cause or cure cancer, I would be the richest man on this earth because I deal with thoughts.' It was like a weight was lifted off."


The actress who had left for New York to receive treatment, came back to the country last year in December. Sonali; who ruled the silver screen in the 1990's with films like Duplicate, Diljale, Sarfarosh and many more, recently faced the camera after a long hiatus and shared her feels in an emotional social media post that read," Being back on a set after a major sabbatical - one that has been testing in many ways on so many levels - is a surreal feeling. "


All our wished with the beautiful actress and we wish her a speedy recovery and strength to her family that stood by her rock-solid through these turbulent days.
