Sonali Bendre shocked us with the announcement of cancer last year and since then the actress is posting her thoughts about the disease and she is creating a positive impact.

There are a lot of celebrity friends who visited the actress and stayed together during tough times. She was in New York while she was hit by the news, now, she is in the country and attending various events.

In a recent event, Sonali Bendre opened up about cancer:

“Everyone said, ‘Your lifestyle was never like that. How did it happen to you?’ I actually thought that it was me doing something wrong and that I have caused it. I went to a psychiatrist in New York. I was like, I don’t understand what is happening to me. I’m not a negative person, I have a lot of positive thoughts. Am I being delusional? Do I actually have negative thoughts and I am burying it so deep in my sub-conscience that I don’t realise it? I needed to understand what was happening to me.”

Sonali further spoke about how the psychiatrist explained it to her and helped her to deal with these feelings which came across her mind. She revealed that it helped her stop self-blaming and said, “I realised that we have done nothing wrong if we have got this disease.”
