Sonali Bendre Behl shares her new look on Instagram


Highlights

  1. Sonali Bendre was diagnosed with metastatic cancer
  2. She shares her new hairdo on Instagram

It has been quite some time since we got the latest health update from actress Sonali Bendre Behl, who is battling with metastatic cancer. It was back on Friendship's day when she shared a picture of her with friends Sussanne Khan and Gayatri Oberoi. The picture was taken after Sonali Bendre had lost her hair to chemotherapy for metastatic cancer treatment. The post that she recently shared is that of her new look sporting a glamorous hairdo. Sonali Bendre's latest post shows just how sportingly she is handling cancer treatment and not letting it come in between living her life the way she wants.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

"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.

She begins her quoting Al Pacino's famous saying, "Vanity is my favourite sin." She agrees that vanity in not her all-time favourite sin - which most certainly is gluttony. Everyone enjoys looking good and appealing, and so does Sonali. Doing what makes you happy is important for everyone, even a cancer patient. Physical appearance can have a huge impact on a person psychologically, agrees Sonali Bendre.

This is me. And in this moment, I am really happy. People give me strange looks when I say that now, but it's true and I'll tell you why. I am now paying attention to every moment, looking for every opportunity to find joy and #SwitchOnTheSunshine. Yes, there are moments of pain and low energy, but I am doing what I like, spending time with people I love, and feeling very loved and happy. I am extremely grateful to my friends, my pillars of strength, who at a moment's notice, arrived to be with me and help me through this. In between their busy schedules they find time to visit, call, message, FaceTime... basically never leaving a moment for me to feel alone. Thank you for showing me what true friendship is. #HappyFriendshipDay, ladies. Blessed to have you all in my life (including the ones not in the picture... You know who you are) @gayatrioberoi @suzkr P.S. Nowadays I spend far less time getting ready because I don't have to fuss over my hair! #BaldIsBeautiful #FindThePositive #OneDayAtATime Picture credit: @hrithikroshan

The decision to look appealing, with or without metastatic cancer, struck Sonali probably because she is part and parcel of the entertainment industry - which expects one to look glamorous at all times. "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," she wrote.
