Sonali Bendre says chemotherapy made her eyesight weak


In this hard phase of life, Sonali Bendre finds books her one source of solaces. The brave woman has picked up a new book ‘A Little Life’ by Hanya Yanagihara and before she starts reading the book, she shared it with her admirers and also informed the side effect of chemotherapy. But also assures fans that she is doing fine now.

Due to chemo, her eyesight became weak but it is fine now and she can start reading again.

“Time to announce the next book! The last one took a while, as my eyesight was doing strange things due to the chemo and I couldn’t read for a while. Was panicking a bit, but now all is well again! Whew!,” she wrote in her post. “The next book for SBC is set in the city I’m currently in, New York... it’s called A Little Life by @hanyayanagihara. It’s been nominated for so many literary awards and is a story of friendship and ambition. We’ve read books with female friendships before, but this is our first one on friendship among boys... Should be interesting. Can’t wait to start reading it, and I hope you read it with me too,”?Sonali shared holding the new book in her hand.

In July this year, Sonali informed about her disease to her fans and since then she is undergoing treatment in New York, “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,” she wrote in her post.

Lately, the actress attended Priyanka Chopra’s bridal shower in New York. Sonali donned a red attire and as usual looked stunning, “It’s always lovely to be part of someone’s special moment and more so when it’s a dear friend. What a fabulous evening @priyankachopra!!! Your bridal shower was filled with so much love and laughter. I wish all that and more for you as you take this next big step. Big hug and much love. P.S. it felt so great and also somewhat strange to wear a bright colour again!,” she captioned the photo.
