As actress Sonali Bendre Behl is undergoing metastatic cancer treatment in New York, where Anupam Kher is shooting for his new show New Amsterdam, the veteran actor says he often tries to talk to her and meet her.

The two actors have featured in movies like Keemat and Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai.

“I spoke to Sonali two days ago and she is getting her treatment done. As she knows that I am also in New York for four to five months, we both talk about who will be able to return back home first. I always tell her, ‘I don’t know about me, but I really want you to go back home’,” Kher said.

He is stumped by how brave the Sarfarosh actress is.

“Sonali is a courageous and brave person. By brave, I do not mean strong in terms of physical strength. How you deal with life in difficult situation determines your true strength and the way Sonali is fighting is highly applaudable,” said Kher.

“I pray to God every morning to give Sonali immense strength. And I always try my best to meet her and be in touch with her because I know when somebody is not well, at that time person feels good to be surrounded with loved ones. So, I make sure I talk to her and create positive vibes around her always,” he added.

Bendre has remained positive in her outlook as she battles the serious ailment, with support from her family and friends.
