Sonali Bendre shares pic with son Ranveer, tweets about book club


Cancer survivor Sonali Bendre shared about her first collaboration on the book club with son Ranveer. The picture is too adorable too handle. It showed son Ranveer leaning on his mom’s back with ‘Half Brother’ book in hand.

"As we come close to the end of another year, it's amazing to see how much this book club has grown and how I can see tangible effects. After my son hosted his first SBC Live, he's become more enthusiastic about reading, so much so that he has now recommended a book for us," Sonali posted on Instagram on Sunday along with a photograph of her and her son.

"So the next book for SBC is 'Half Brother'. I'm really excited as it's the first mom-son collaboration on the book club, and I'm looking forward to exploring this book with you all! The family that reads together, Sonali's Book Club."

When Sonali was undergoing cancer treatment in New York, the actress in a long post wrote how he broke the news of cancer to son Ranveer.

“From the moment he was born 12 years, 11 months and 8 days ago, my amazing @rockbehl took ownership of my heart. From then on, his happiness and well-being have been the centre of anything @goldiebehl and I ever did. And so, when the Big C reared its ugly head, our biggest dilemma was what and how we were going to tell him,” she says.

Instead to conceal the news Sonali says she and husband Goldie Behl decided to be honest with him. “As much as we wanted to protect him, we knew it was important to tell him the full facts. We’ve always been open and honest with him and this time it wasn’t going to be different. He took the news so maturely… and instantly became a source of strength and positivity for me. In some situations now, he even reverses roles and takes on being the parent, reminding me of things I need to do!”
