Actor Sonali Bendre, who has been undergoing treatment for ‘high grade’ cancer in New York since July, has shared on social media that she is returning home in Mumbai for a “happy interval” while adding that the “fight is not yet over”. The actor wrote that it is a joy to see her friends and family again and share her journey.

Sharing a photo on social media, Sonali wrote, “They say Distance makes the heart grow fonder. It sure does. But let’s never underestimate what distance teaches you. Being away from home in the city of New York, I realized I was walking amongst so many stories. Each trying to write their own chapter in different ways. Each struggling to do it but never giving up. Each taking it #OneDayAtATime.”

They say “Distance makes the heart grow fonder”. It sure does. But let’s never underestimate what distance teaches you. Being away from home in the city of New York, I realized I was walking amongst so many stories. Each trying to write their own chapter in different ways. Each struggling to do it but never giving up. Each taking it #OneDayAtATime. And now I’m on my way back to where my heart is. It’s a feeling I can’t describe in words but I’m going to try – it’s the joy to see my family and friends again, the excitement to do what I love and mainly the gratitude for the journey I’ve had up until this moment. The fight is not yet over…but I’m happy and looking forward to this happy interval 🙂 It’s time to learn that there is a new normal out there and I can’t wait to embrace it and #SwitchOnTheSunshine. #NowPlaying #AdventureOfALifeTime And as my adventure with life continues these words by Chris Martin hit home, “Everything you want is a dream away. Under this pressure, under this weight We are diamonds taking shape…”
