The idea was almost preposterous. An almost bald head, barely any make-up and a huge scar was not the norm for @vogueindia. But, I guess that's my new normal. Of course I had my reservations, and, if I dare say, insecurities – but a candid conversation with the lovely ladies @priya_tanna and @anaitashroffadajania cleared my doubts. And before I knew it, I was standing in front of the camera, ready to uncover my new reality. The icing on the cake was the fact that I needed one-third of the time for hair and make-up😄. So I closed my eyes and jumped into it, full throttle, and this is the result. Thank you, @meghamahindru for telling my story; and thank you @ridburman for understanding my story and saying it so beautifully through your lens. If there's a piece of advice I can give you all after this, it would be to 'Find your new normal'. It's very liberating.

Recently, the actress attended India Today Conclave 2019. On the occasion, Sonali stated that the toughest part was her surgery. The actress had also said that cancer has taught her one thing and that is there is still some humanity in the world.
The actress had also explained why it was so important to reveal about her cancer to her son Ranveer. She had said, “Ranveer was on a school trip and I could have sent him back home but I needed to see him. I need to be able to talk to him. That’s the way we have brought him up and we have always been very honest with him. The only thing that we were hoping was that by not lying to him, one day he will not be lying to us. That he will be honest with us and that was the example we were trying to set.”
