I’ll be back soon, Sonali Bendre to India's Best Dramebaaz finalists


Sonali Bendre, who is undergoing cancer treatment in New York has sent her best wishes to the finalists of India’s Best Dramebaaz. The video is very touching.

The video sees Sonali wearing a scarf under a hat. In the video, Sonali says, “Hi everyone. I am so happy to see all the kids doing so well on the show. I am missing the entire team of 'India's Best Dramebaaz' so much. I wish I could just be there with all of you. Vivek keeps sending me the messages of the kids all the time and they're all so sweet, it makes me cry. I want to thank Huma from the bottom of my heart for stepping in at the last minute. It means a lot. For Shantanu, I just want to say that I was so excited to work with you after so many years, but it had to end this way. I miss everyone a lot.”

The actress further added, “But I promise I will come back soon. I just want to tell something to all the finalists, some will lose and one will win, but everyone is wonderful and all of you have learned a lot in this entire journey which will help everyone a lot in the future."  (watch the video above). Hosted by Shantanu Maheshwari and Vighnesh Pande, finale of India’s Best Dramebaaz will air this Sunday.

In a long statement, Sonali disclosed about her disease on Twitter, she said, "Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with a high grade cancer that has metastised, 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.”

“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. We remain optimistic and I am determined to fight every step of the way. What has helped has been the immense outpouring of love and support I’ve received over the past few days, for which I am very grateful. I’m taking this battle head on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me,” she added.
