She looks amazingly fit, Namrata Shirodkar meets Sonali Bendre in NYC


Namrata Shirodkar, who is on a vacation with her family in New York dropped down to meet her old friend and ailing Sonali Bendre, who is undergoing cancer treatment. The good friends chatted for long hours and they had a great time together.

Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, Namrata said, “She is a strong girl. She looks amazingly fit and ready to get back to normal life. I had such a lovely time with her. We discussed so many things. She told me the entire story of her illness and what gives her the strength, and I told her that she’s always in my prayers."

Namrata talks about how she is similar to Sonali. "Just like me, she’s so typically Maharashtrian in so many ways. We chatted about everything under the sun. We even laughed about some shared recollections of the past. My son Gautam and I were to meet Sonali, her son Ranvir, and husband Goldie. But unfortunately, my family and I are going to be out of New York for two days. However, Sonali and I have promised each other a walk in Central Park, and we will do that soon,” added Namrata.

About not sharing picture of her meeting with Sonali, Namrata said, “I didn’t think it was proper. But, I wanted to.”

Celebrities and close friends like Priyanka Chopra, Anupam Kher, Sussanne Khan and Neetu Singh also visited cancer-stricken Sonali Bendre in NYC.
