I am very blessed and thankful for each of them.”She also added
“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.

Celeb designer Manish Malhotra posted on her Instagram picture “Wishes and strength and love with you Sonali.” Neelam Soni, who is also her Hum Saath Saath Hai co-star posted “You are the strongest girl I know. My superwoman." Calling the 43 year old actress a fighter, Karan Johar wrote, “Godspeed, love and strength to a true fighter and a solid soul!!! (with 3 heart emoticons)” After reading her tweet, Sophie Chaudhary tweeted “Sending you all the love, strength and prayers to fight this Sonali!! I know you will!! We all love you!(with 2 heart emoticons) @iamsonalibendre.” This might be the reason why Sonali refused to judge a reality show named India's Best Dramebaaz, and was replaced by Huma Qureshi.
