Bollywood actor Sonali Bendre is tackling cancer head on.

A week after announcing her cancer diagnosis, Sonali on Tuesday shared a video of herself getting her hair cut in preparation for cancer treatment.

Along with it, the actor also posted a picture of herself rocking a long pixie cut and penned a heartfelt note.

“The outpouring of love I’ve received in the last few days has been so overwhelming,” she said in a statement also shared on social media Tuesday. “Your stories have given me an extra dosage of strength and courage, and more importantly, the knowledge that I’m not alone,” she wrote.

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!

“I can only hope it reminds you that all is not lost and that someone, somewhere understands what you’re going through,” she concluded.

Sonali is currently undergoing treatment in New York.
Last week, the actor took to social media to share she has been diagnosed with high-grade cancer.

Sonali made her Bollywood debut in 1994 with Govinda’s Aag and went on to rule Bollywood during the 90s and early 2000s, with films such as Sarfarosh, Duplicate, Major Saab, Hum Saath Saath Hain and Diljale.

The actor recently stepped down as the judge of popular TV show India’s Best Dramebaaz and was last seen on the silver screen in 2013 in Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai.
