Highlights

  1. "It has been months since I've even needed a 'trim'," said Sonali
  2. Never thought I'd get a makeover of sorts like this: Sonali
  3. Sonali Bendre was being treated for cancer in the US last year

Actress Sonali Bendre, who gracefully adapted to the cosmetic changes post-cancer treatment, shared a video of herself getting her hair trimmed for a photoshoot and she wrote that she "couldn't stop smiling." Sonali, who went bald after her treatment for cancer started last year, wrote: "Took me a while to get used to having little hair. But once that set in, there was no looking back (literally!) It has been months since I've even needed a 'trim'. So, during (a photoshoot) when Mickey Contractor (celebrated stylist and make-up artist) said that I needed one, my first thought was, "Really??". Before I could react, he was all set - armed with an eyebrow scissor, ready to go at it! I couldn't stop smiling. Never thought I'd get a makeover of sorts like this, but I guess it's my new normal."

Check out Sonali Bendre's post:

Sonali Bendre recently told Mumbai Mirror that at one point her 'whole life had been about her hair.' Speaking about how her long hair reportedly got her a role in K Ravi Shankar's 1994 film Aag, Sonali had said: "Now that I think of it, earlier, my whole life had been about my hair, even though it sounds superficial."

Last month, Sonali Bendre trended big time when she covered a magazine issue sporting "an almost bald head and a huge scar." She wrote: "Of course I had my reservations, and, if I dare say, insecurities but... before I knew it, I was standing in front of the camera, ready to uncover my new reality... If there's a piece of advice I can give you all after this, it would be to 'Find your new normal'. It's very liberating."

Here's the post:

The idea was almost preposterous. An almost bald head, barely any make-up and a huge scar was not the norm for @vogue. But, I guess that's my new normal. Of course I had my reservations, and, if I dare say, insecurities - but a candid conversation with the lovely ladies @priya_tanna and @anaitashroffadajania cleared my doubts. And before I knew it, I was standing in front of the camera, ready to uncover my new reality. The icing on the cake was the fact that I needed one-third of the time for hair and make-up. So I closed my eyes and jumped into it, full throttle, and this is the result. Thank you, @meghamahindru for telling my story; and thank you @ridburman for understanding my story and saying it so beautifully through your lens. If there's a piece of advice I can give you all after this, it would be to 'Find your new normal'. It's very liberating.
