A day after meeting Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor, it appears that actress Sonali Bendre caught up with colleague Anupam Kher, who is in New York for work. The 43-year-old actress shared a picture on her Instagram stories with Anupam Kher. Sonali Bendre, who has previously shared a 'bald is beautiful' post, added another picture to her collection. In the photo, she features without her wig and sports an all-black look like Anupam Kher, which explains her caption. "Never thought I'd say this. Twinning from head to toe with the one and only Anupam Kher. Ha ha ha." Sonali Bendre is currently undergoing treatment for cancer in New York. She moved to the Big Apple in July and is accompanied by husband Goldie Behl. They are now joined by sister-in-law Srishti Behl Arya. Anupam Kher also shared multiple pictures from their meeting and tweeted, "It was so wonderful and refreshing to have dinner with the most beautiful, inspirational and courageous Sonali Bendre, along with the compassionate Goldie Behl."

Anupam Kher had earlier told news agency IANS that the duo often meet each other and said, "Sonali is a courageous and brave person. By brave, I do not mean strong in terms of physical strength. How you deal with life in difficult situation determines your true strength and the way Sonali is fighting is highly applaudable." They have co-starred in films like Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai and Dil Hi Dil Mein.
On Tuesday, Sonali Bendre shared a powerful post on her treatment and wrote about her personal experience of dealing with the pain.
"I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed. Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told. I decided I was safe. I was strong. I was brave. Nothing could vanquish me." - Cheryl Strayed, Wild. Over the past couple of months, I have had good days and bad ones. There have been days when I've been so exhausted and in so much pain that even lifting a finger hurt. I feel like sometimes it's a cycle... one that starts off with physical pain and leads to mental and emotional pain. The bad days have been many... Post chemo, post-surgery and the like... where even just laughing hurts. Sometimes it felt like it took everything I've had to push past it... a minute to minute battle with myself. I got through it knowing that even though I was fighting a long drawn out, draining battle... it was one that was worth the fight. It's important to remember that we're allowed to have those bad days. Forcing yourself to be happy and cheerful all the time serves no purpose. Who are we being fake and putting on an act for? I allowed myself to cry, to feel the pain, to indulge in self-pity... for a short while. Only you know what you're going through and it is fine to accept it. Emotions aren't wrong. Feeling negative emotions isn't wrong. But after a point, identify it, recognize it and refuse to let it control your life. It takes an immense amount of self-care to get out of that zone. Sleep always helps, or having my favourite smoothie after chemo, or just talking to my son. For now, as my treatment continues... my visual focus remains to just get better and get back home. It's yet another test... Student all my life... Learning all my life... #OneDayAtATime : @srishtibehlarya
