Sonali Bendre celebrates ‘unconventional’ Diwali with family in New York
Actress Sonali Bendre took everyone by surprise when she announced that she has been diagnosed with a ‘high-grade cancer’. The 43-year-old actress is currently undergoing treatment in New York and her husband Goldie Goldie Behl and son Ranveer are there to support her through this crucial stage of her life. Sonali keeps on updating her friends with the latest developments of her treatment.
Amidst the treatment, Sonali along with her husband and son celebrated Diwali in New York. Taking to her social media handle, Sonali posted pictures of her Diwali celebrations calling it ‘unconventional’. “Diwali in New York happens much later than in Mumbai… Hence the late wish! It was quite an unconventional one… We didn’t have Indian clothes, we had a small puja… But it was all heart,” she captioned.
She also wished everyone Happy Diwali. “May this year bring you good health, wealth and prosperity… Hope you celebrated this festival with your family and friends, and hope you cherish every moment of happiness with them!”, she wrote along with the post. In the pictures, we see Sonali along with her family offering prayers to Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi with a bowl of gulab jamun and dry fruits for the prasad.
