She wrote, “Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with a high grade cancer that has metastised, which we frankly did not see coming. 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. And so, as advised by my doctors, 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. What has helped has been the immense outpouring of love and support I’ve received over the past few days, for which I am very grateful.”

Sonali said that she was taking ‘this battle head on’ adding that she had ‘the strength of my family and friends behind me.’

No sooner did she reveal the shocking news concerning her health, Sonali began to experience an outpour of support from her fans, who wished her a speedy recovery. One fan wrote, “My first crush …you have to fight back and win…believe in will power.” Another wrote, “Lots of love and strength to you ma’am..You have got a strong will power ..Go beat that shit up…”

Only a day ago, Sonali had posted a promotional video while marketing a sauce brand.

Sonali is married to Goldie Behl and has a 12-year-old son Ranveer, who was born in August 2005. She has acted in scores of films including Duplicate, Major Saab and Sarfarosh. In 2012, she quit as India’s Got Talent judge to focus on her comeback film, One Upon a Time in Mumbai Dobaara.

Earlier another Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan was diagnosed with high-grade neuroendocrine cancer.  In a gut-wrenching note sent from London, Irrfan had conceded that his ailment was rare and that its treatment was unpredictable.

“It’s been quite some time now since I have been diagnosed with a high-grade neuroendocrine cancer. This new name in my vocabulary, I got to know, was rare, and due to fewer study cases, and less information comparatively, the unpredictability of the treatment was more. I was part of a trial-and-error game. I had been in a different game, I was travelling on a speedy train ride, had dreams, plans, aspirations, goals, was fully engaged in them. And suddenly someone taps on my shoulder and I turn to see. It’s the TC: “Your destination is about to come. Please get down.” I am confused: “No, no. My destination hasn’t come.” “No, this is it. This is how it is sometimes,” Irrfan had written.
