Sonali Bendre spends time with son Ranveer, shares heartfelt message on social media

New York, July 19 (IBNS): Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre, who is battling deadly disease cancer, is presently spending time with her son Ranveer.

Sharing a picture with Ranveer on Instagram, Bendre wrote a heartfelt message for her son on social media.

The actress described how her 12-year old son is playing a key role at this crucial juncture of her life.

Hailing her son's maturity, Bendre described how easily Ranveer understood the crisis in his mother's life.

Bendre said: "We’ve always been open and honest with him and this time it wasn’t going to be different. He took the news so maturely… and instantly became a source of strength and positivity for me.

"In some situations now, he even reverses roles and takes on being the parent, reminding me of things I need to do!"

 

From the moment he was born 12 years, 11 months and 8 days ago, my amazing @rockbehl took ownership of my heart. From then on, his happiness and wellbeing have been the centre of anything @goldiebehl and I ever did. And so, when the Big C reared its ugly head, our biggest dilemma was what and how we were going to tell him. As much as we wanted to protect him, we knew it was important to tell him the full facts. We’ve always been open and honest with him and this time it wasn’t going to be different. He took the news so maturely… and instantly became a source of strength and positivity for me. In some situations now, he even reverses roles and takes on being the parent, reminding me of things I need to do! I believe that it’s imperative to keep kids involved in a situation like this. They are a lot more resilient than we give them credit for. It’s important to spend time with them and include them, rather than make them wait on the side-lines, not being told yet instinctively knowing everything. In our effort to protect them from the pain and realities of life, we might end up doing the opposite. I’m spending time with Ranveer right now, while he’s on summer vacation. His madness and shenanigans help me #SwitchOnTheSunshine. And today, we derive strength from each other #OneDayAtATime

Sonali Bendre makes her cancer revelation on social media:

Sonali Bendre took to Twitter to announce that she has been diagnosed with “high-grade cancer”.

According to her statement, she is undergoing treatment in New York.

The 43-year-old actress posted a picture of her and her husband-film producer Goldie Behl, accompanied by a long caption that tells how she got aware of the disease, the treatment she is undergoing and the support she is receiving from her family and friends.

"Sometimes when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with high-grade cancer, that has metastised, which we frankly did not see coming," she had tweeted.

"A niggling pain led to some tests which led to this unexpected diagnosis."

"My family and close friends have rallied around me, providing the best support system that anyone can ask for. I am very blessed and thankful for each of them. There is no better way to tackle this than to take swift and immediate action," Bendre tweeted.

"I am currently undergoing a course of treatment in New York. We remain optimistic and I am determined to fight every step of the way... I am tackling this battle head-on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me," the actor said.

Known for her soothing beauty, Bendre received critical acclaim for her performances in Diljale in 1996, followed by Bhai (1997), Sarfarosh, Zakhm, Duplicate, Kadhalar Dhinam (Tamil film), Hum Saath-Saath Hain: We Stand United (1999), Tera Mera Saath Rahen (2001) and Anahat (2003) among others.
