Web Desk: Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre, is a positive and a brave actress. Recently, she has been diagnosed with high-grade cancer, since then her pictures on social media showed how courageous woman she is.
Sonali Bendre draws most of her courage from her 12-year-old son Ranveer Behl. On Instagram, the actor mentioned how important it is to involve kids in the family situation. She also mentioned that it is her son who ‘switch on the sunshine’ in her as she battles with cancer in New York.
Sonali wrote, ‘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 well-being have been the centre of anything @goldiebehl and I ever did.’
“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,” wrote the Kal Ho Na Ho actor.
Sharing the reaction of little Ranveer, Sonali added, “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!” Adding to it, she wrote, “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.”
Further, she added how she derives her strength from her son and wrote, “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.”
