2018 had been a tough year for Sonali Bendre, but in her own words, it taught her “from being in awe of the body's willingness and capacity to fight and heal and recover to overwhelming gratitude to the people who have stood by me and been pillars of strength to being reminded of life's transience and that things come and go (much like my hair)”. One constant pillar of strength for Sonali throughout her cancer journey has been her husband, Goldie Behl.

On January 24, 2019, Goldie Behl turned a year older and to wish her better-half on social media, Sonali Bendre has a unique wish for him. Posting a picture with Goldie on her social media handles, Sonali wrote, “Somethings are better left unsaid on social, somethings are better left said in person. Love you loads. Happy birthday, @GOLDIEBEHL”. Here’s the picture that she had shared:
Sonali Bendre is currently enjoying her ‘happy interval’ in Mumbai after her cancer treatment in the US. On December 2, 2018, Sonali took to her social media handles and revealed that she’s on her way back to Mumbai. In an emotional Instagram post, Sonali shared, "They say 'Distance makes the heart grow fonder'. It sure does. But let's never underestimate what distance teaches you. Being away from home in the city of New York, I realised I was walking amongst so many stories. Each trying to write their own chapter in different ways. Each struggling to do it but never giving up. Each taking it #OneDayAtATime."
Revealing that her fight from cancer is not yet over and she is happily looking forward to the interval, Sonali added, “And now I’m on my way back to where my heart is. It’s a feeling I can’t describe in words but I’m going to try – it’s the joy to see my family and friends again, the excitement to do what I love and mainly the gratitude for the journey I’ve had up until this moment. The fight is not yet over...but I’m happy and looking forward to this happy interval :) It’s time to learn that there is a new normal out there and I can’t wait to embrace it and #SwitchOnTheSunshine. #NowPlaying #AdventureOfALifeTime”
Sonali concluded her post as, “And as my adventure with life continues these words by Chris Martin hit home, “Everything you want is a dream away. Under this pressure, under this weight We are diamonds taking shape...”” Post her return, on December 23, 2018, Sonali revealed that she has collaborated with her son, Ranveer Behl and they have started a reading club called SBC, which was started by Ranveer a while ago.

Sharing the collaboration, Sonali wrote on social media, "As we come close to the end of another year, it's amazing to see how much this book club has grown and how I can see tangible effects. After my son hosted his first SBC Live, he's become more enthusiastic about reading, so much so that he has now recommended a book for us! So the next book for #SBC is Half Brother by @kenneth.oppel. I'm really excited as it's the first mom-son collaboration on the book club, and I'm looking forward to exploring this book with you all! #TheFamilyThatReadsTogether #SonalisBookClub @sonalisbookclub."
On November 12, 2018, Sonali Bendre and Goldie Behl celebrated their 16th anniversary and to mark the special occasion, the actress shared some lovely pictures with her husband on social media with a heart-warming wish. She wrote, "As soon I began to write this... I knew instantly that I wouldn’t be able to put down in words all the emotions and thoughts that were running through my head. Husband. Companion. Best friend. My rock. For me, that's @goldiebehl. Marriage is standing by each other, through thick and thin, in sickness and in health… and god knows, how we’ve been through that this year.”
She further wrote, “What not many people realize is that cancer is not just an individual battle… it’s something that a family collectively goes through. I was also able to go on this journey, knowing that you’d juggle all your responsibilities, and take on some more and hold fort back home… all this while shuttling between two continents. Thank you for being my source of strength, love and joy, for being with me every single step of the way... thank you is such an understatement for how I feel. What do I say about someone who is a part of you, who is yours and nothing and nobody else matters? Happy anniversary Goldie!” (Also Read: Sonali Bendre Shares Her Cancer Journey Of Good And Bad Days, Says Talking To Son, Ranveer Helped)
