Reported on Times Now News, Kher says that he tries to visit the actress-anchor when he can, and makes sure he creates a positive vibe when does see her. “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-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’,” reveals ‘The Big Sick’ (2017) actor.
The veteran actor goes on say how impressed he is with her courageous attitude. “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 a difficult situation determines your true strength and the way Sonali is fighting is highly applaudable. 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 a person feels good to be surrounded by loved ones. So, I make sure I talk to her and create positive vibes around her always.”
Kher and Bendre both worked together in ‘Keemat’ (1998) and ‘Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hain’ (2000).
Since going public with her illness, Bendre has received huge support from all her friends and family and fans alike.
