Sharing the picture with Suzanne and Gayatri, Sonali wrote, "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 switch on the sunshine'," Sonali captioned the image. 

She said 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. Happy Friendship Day, ladies." 

The 43-year-old, is battling the dreaded disease positively and smilingly.

The actress shocked her fans when last month, she announced that she has been diagnosed with metastatic cancer.
