We know that Sonali Bendre is fighting cancer in the United States and has been inspiring us to stay strong while fighting away troubles with poise and dignity. In fact, the actress has been sharing powerful stories of her journey battling this deadly disease assisted by her friends and family. But, a while back some disturbing news surfaced on the Internet claiming that, Sonali had succumbed to the disease and is no more amongst us. Well, fortunately this ghastly news was just a hoax and Sonali is hale and hearty. Guess who started this rumour? None other politician Ram Kadam who is currently mired in controversies for his problematic statements on women.
He took to Twitter earlier to today put out a post stating that the actress has passed away but was quick to retort to his stand and put out an apology, calling this bad news just a rumour. He wrote, “About Sonali Bendre ji. It was rumour. Since last two days.. I pray to God for her good health & speedy recovery.” Below is his tweet.

Sonali took to Instagram yesterday to share a rather brave post about herself reading a book in a bald avatar. The actress is currently undergoing chemotherapy which leads to loss of copious amounts of hair. While hair is a sensitive topic as far as vanity of an individual is considered, Sonali has been pretty open about it and even posted a pictures of herself in a custom wig.

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

“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.
