‘My Eyesight Has Become Weak Due to Chemotherapy’ Says Cancer-stricken Sonali Bendre

Sonali Bendre has grabbed the headlines when the actress has shared the news that she is diagnosed with cancer. The actress is having metastatic cancer and is now under treatment in New York, United States. Recently, she shared a new picture on Instagram, announcing the new book for her book club members to read.


In her post on the social media, the actress wrote that she took longer time than usual to finish the last book. It is because of her eyesight that had been affected by chemotherapy rounds. She also revealed how she panicked a bit on realising that but assured her fans that she is feeling well now.

“Time to announce the next book! The last one took a while, as my eyesight was doing strange things due to the chemo and I couldn’t read for a while. Was panicking a bit, but now all is well again! Whew!,” she wrote in her post. “The next book for SBC is set in the city I’m currently in, New York… it’s called A Little Life by @hanyayanagihara. It’s been nominated for so many literary awards and is a story of friendship and ambition. We’ve read books with female friendships before, but this is our first one on friendship among boys… Should be interesting. Can’t wait to start reading it, and I hope you read it with me too.”


Sonali revealed her cancer diagnosis in July and has since been in New York where she is receiving treatment.

“I have recently been diagnosed with high-grade cancer that has metastasized, 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.”
