For the uninitiated, it was the year, 2018 that had come as a massive setback for the Bendre-Behl families as Sonali was diagnosed with Cancer. The actress along with her hubby, Goldie Behl had decided to go to New York for her treatment. While many people couldn’t be able to stand in front of this dangerous disease, it was Sonali’s strong courage and constant support of her family members that had helped her in beating this life-threatening disease to its knees. Since then, we had heard Sonali heaping praise on her family, friends, but most importantly on her husband, Goldie, who was her ultimate source of positivity and courage.

In an event last year in May, Sonali had opened up about her cancer battle and how her husband, Goldie Behl had become a pillar of strength for her till the end. She had explained, "Goldie has been my rock and pillar of strength to help me fight cancer. Thank God, I decided to get married to him. My mother always told me that human being matters more. Of course, there are times when you realise material things are also important, which gets you the treatment in the US, but even that cannot give you the joy the family gives and sees you through it. That is the most important thing."

The actress had posted a bravely bald picture on her Instagram handle during her cancer phase which had created a stir amongst her fans because it was indeed a bold step. There was a wave of happiness, confidence and worries that her fans had gone through seeing that picture. And when in a conversation with SpotboyE, it was asked from Sonali Bendre, whether she had consulted with her husband, Goldie Behl before putting out those bald pictures or not? The actress had replied, “We were talking about it. Goldie used to, in fact, say that why are you being shy about it. He used to say I need to own it and that I look fabulous without my hair as well. Today, he tells me that ‘you should not grow your hair back, the short hair suits you very much’. My husband has been an amazing support.” (Also Read: Anushka Sharma Shares A Picture Of Herself But Her Wedding Portrait Got All The Attention From Fans)
