Suzanne Khan, Gayatri Joshi visit Sonali Bendre at her home

Close pals Suzanne Khan and Gayatri Joshi visited their friend Sonali Bendre after she returned to Mumbai. They were clicked outside Sonali’s Mumbai home. Gayatri was accompanied by her husband Vikas Oberoi. Sonali, Suzanne and Gayatri are thick friends and when Sonali was undergoing treatment in New York, they visited her and spend quality time with their sick friend. The pictures of their outing was also shared on social media. And now that Sonali is back home after beating cancer, Suzanne and Gayatri seemed very happy.

For the past couple of months, Sonali has been undergoing treatment for metastatic cancer and now she is back home but her battle against the dreaded disease is not yet over and the actress had to fly to New York periodically for check-up.

"Sonali is doing good. She is back for good. She is recovering very well. For now, treatment has ended. But the disease can come back so regular checkups will be done," Goldie Behl said.

Sonali announced her return via social media with a heartfelt note.

"They say 'Distance makes the heart grow fonder'. It sure does. But let's never underestimate what distance teaches you. Being away from home in the city of New York, I realised I was walking amongst so many stories. Each trying to write their own chapter in different ways. Each struggling to do it but never giving up. Each taking it one day at a time," Sonali wrotr.

She added: "I'm on my way back to where my heart is. It's a feeling I can't describe in words but I'm going to try - it's the joy to see my family and friends again, the excitement to do what I love and mainly the gratitude for the journey I've had up until this moment.

"The fight is not yet over... but I'm happy and looking forward to this happy interval."

Cancer survivor Manisha Koirala welcomed Sonali, she wrote# “Welcome dear.. discovering “the new normal” will be exciting.. navigating mindfully, it is indeed a soulful time !! You have shown grace n strength in trying times.. you are gorgeous inside out!! Big hug.”

Upon returning home, Sonali shared picture with her pet dog on her Instagram account captioned “Reunited #Little Miss Icy”.
