Sonali Bendre, who was diagnosed with metastatic cancer in July 2018, revisited the hospital in New York where she had undergone treatment. The actress who beat cancer, shared her experience of revisiting the hospital 4 years later in a "bittersweet post." Sonali Bendre wrote: "This chair, this view, this exact same spot... 4 years later. From sheer terror to continued hope, so much has changed yet so much remains the same. It was unreal to sit there and see patients going in and I could see that I had been through a similar journey... Saw the chemotherapy suite, the same waiting room, faces were different."
The actress added in her post, "I felt like telling the patients that there's HOPE, and I am there on the other side and look at me today I have come in for a visit on the other side of the spectrum... It was, as you can guess, a very bittersweet, emotional day. I stepped out, looked my son in the eye, with the sunshine on my face and thanked the universe for everything."
In the comments section of her post, Sonali Bendre's friend Shweta Bachchan Nanda wrote: "Sending you loads of love." Abhishek Bachchan dropped a heart emoji. Sussanne Khan wrote: "Warrior princess sonzyyy." Manisha Koirala, who is also a cancer survivor, dropped multiple heart emojis.
