- Sonali is currently battling cancer in New York
Actress Sonali Bendre has the best squad of girlfriends ever. Designer Sussanne Khan and actress Gayatri Joshi have joined the 43-year-old actress in New York, where she is undergoing treatment for cancer. On Saturday, Sussanne's Instafam woke up to a beautiful photo of Sonali and her friends hanging out at what appears to be a park but it's the caption of the photo that'll really warm the cockles of your heart. "This is us.... Fight for you, Respect you, Include you, Encourage you, Need you, Deserve you, Stand by you. #myheartmonsters #adayinthepark #surfon #summeroflove2018," Sussanne captioned the photo, which is a selfie of hers with Sonali and Gayatri in the background.
It is also Sonali's best friends who have come forward to contribute to Sonali's Book Club duties. Sonali recently posted an update about her digital book club and wrote: Amor Towles' novel A Gentleman In Moscow is to be discussed in the next session of her book club meet while last month, Dia Mirza, Sussanne Khan and Gayatri Joshi had taken over for her and organised a conversation which was live streamed on Sonali's Facebook profile.
Today is #ReadABookDay and what better way to celebrate it than by announcing the next book for #SBC! This one is a historical fiction set in Russia called "A Gentleman in Moscow" by @amortowles. The premise sounds pretty interesting, and I can't wait to start reading it! #SonalisBookClub
Sonali Bendre flew off to New York for treatment after the cancer diagnosis. Since then, her friends have continued to dedicate heart-warming messages about friendship, for example, another one by Sussanne: "What I know for sure... I know for sure that no matter what the tide brings in we have each other to carry on our backs and swim safely to the shore. I know for sure in a world filled with question marks these have all my answers... and I definitely know how beautiful the future gonna be.... coz I have them to share it with... my force field."

Sonali Bendre, who has begun with her chemotherapy sessions, credited Priyanka Chopra for introducing her to the stylist, who helped her style her new look. "Who doesn't like looking good? The way we look has a profound psychological impact on us... A little vanity here and there does no one any harm," wrote Sonali, who sports a wig in the photos.
"Vanity is my favourite sin." - Al Pacino Well, it might not be my all-time favourite sin (that would be gluttony), but who doesn't like looking good? The way we look has a profound psychological impact on us... A little vanity here and there does no one any harm. It's important to do what makes you happy, even if it's something as simple as wearing a wig, bright red lipstick, high heels.... All that white noise doesn't make a difference in the larger picture. No one can tell you what's right or wrong for you. When I was testing out the wigs, I had a brief moment of self-doubt... "Am I vain for wanting to look good?" As part of the entertainment industry, you're always expected to look good... Maybe that has been ingrained in me? But then I gave it a thought and I realized I like looking good for me. If I'm in the mood to wear a scarf, I will. If I want to walk around bald and free, I will. Only you know what would make you feel good, and what works best for you. So take every opportunity you can to #SwitchOnTheSunshine. #OneDayAtATime Thank you @priyankachopra for connecting me with the amazing @bokheehair, who created my new look.
Sonali Bendre announced she's been diagnosed with metastatic cancer in the first week of July after which health updates have been posted by her filmmaker husband Goldie Behl. "Thank you all for the love and support for Sonali. She is stable and is following her treatment without any complications. This is a long journey but we have begun positively," he tweeted last month.
