Sonali Bendre had decided early on after her cancer diagnosis that she will fight it with spirit and sunshine.

The actor was diagnosed with high grade cancer that has metasised but through her social media updates, she has time and again proved that she is keeping her positive outlook and sense of humour intact. Sonali’s husband Goldie Behl, meanwhile, returned to Mumbai for some important work. He has been by Sonali’s side as she started her treatment in the US.

On Friendship Day, Sonali had shared a ‘bald is beautiful’ photo and was surrounded by friends Sussanne Khan and Gayatri Oberoi. “This is me. And in this moment, I am really happy. People give me strange looks when I say that now, but it’s true and I’ll tell you why. I am now paying attention to every moment, looking for every opportunity to find joy and #SwitchOnTheSunshine,” wrote the actress.

This is me. And in this moment, I am really happy. People give me strange looks when I say that now, but it's true and I'll tell you why. I am now paying attention to every moment, looking for every opportunity to find joy and #SwitchOnTheSunshine. Yes, there are moments of pain and low energy, but I am doing what I like, spending time with people I love, and feeling very loved and happy. I am extremely grateful to my friends, my pillars of strength, who at a moment's notice, arrived to be with me and help me through this. In between their busy schedules they find time to visit, call, message, FaceTime... basically never leaving a moment for me to feel alone. Thank you for showing me what true friendship is. #HappyFriendshipDay, ladies. Blessed to have you all in my life (including the ones not in the picture... You know who you are) @gayatrioberoi @suzkr P.S. Nowadays I spend far less time getting ready because I don't have to fuss over my hair! 😜#BaldIsBeautiful #FindThePositive #OneDayAtATime Picture credit: @hrithikroshan
