Actress Sonali Bendre, who is a cancer survivor, shared a few blasts from the past on her Instagram recently. The 45-year-old actress picked out memories from her beach days, in which she can be seen sporting breezy, summery swimwear with the sea breeze playing with her hair. "If only this wasn't a throwback... miss the sun, sea, sand... and of course those abs and the flowing hair," Sonali captioned her post. Sonali Bendre was diagnosed with metastatic cancer in July 2018, after which she flew to New York for treatment. Sonali, who underwent several chemotherapy sessions as part of her treatment, had to cut her hair and had shared several posts about her new look on Instagram in 2018. Sonali returned to India in December and was photographed being escorted out of the Mumbai airport by Goldie Behl, hand-in-hand.
Sonali's husband Goldie Behl dropped the first emojis and wrote: "Always." Goldie Behl's sister described the throwback version of Sonali Bendre as "goddess". "You look just as gorgeous today with your beautiful shorter hairdo," wrote Sussanne while Tahira Kashyap, also a cancer survivor, reacted like this: "Uff."

In a recent interview with news agency PTI, Goldie Behl said that he put his upcoming films on hold after Sonali's cancer diagnosis: "I am focusing more on my energies, ever since 2018, after I went to New York with Sonali, it was a life-altering situation for all of us."
