A couple of days after announcing her cancer diagnosis, a Bollywood star, Sonali Bendre, posted a video of cutting her hair off before chemotherapy treatment. By this step, Sonali wanted to show she keeps on fighting with her disease.
43-year-old Sonali Bendre is a famous actress and model. She is quite popular not only in Bollywood but worldwide as well. Bendre was a judge on Indian Idol 4 and India's Got Talent.
On Tuesday, the Bollywood star shared an emotional Instagram post of getting her hair cut off before cancer treatment. A week ago, Sonali announced she was diagnosed with metastatic cancer.
If you scroll the post, you’ll see the video showing Sonali tearing up as the hairdresser cuts away her beautiful long curls.
The star wrote in a caption citing her favorite author Isabel Allende:
We don't even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward…
In the words of my favourite author Isabel Allende, “We don't even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward. In times of tragedy, of war, of necessity, people do amazing things. The human capacity for survival and renewal is awesome.” The outpouring of love I’ve received in the last few days has been so overwhelming… and I’m especially grateful to those of you who shared stories of your experiences in dealing with cancer, whether it was your own or of loved ones. Your stories have given me an extra dosage of strength and courage, and more importantly, the knowledge that I’m not alone. Each day comes with its own challenges and victories and so for now, I’m taking this #OneDayAtATime. The only thing I’m trying to be consistent about is maintaining a positive outlook... literally #SwitchOnTheSunshine - it’s my way of dealing with this. Sharing my journey is also part of this process... I can only hope it reminds you that all is not lost and that someone, somewhere understands what you’re going through. 🤞🌞 Thank you @tomoarakawa for making this a chic transition from long to short!
Bendre added that by posting this video, she wants to inspire her fans and followers to never lose hope and believe in the positive outcome.
