Omung Kumar on Sonali Bendre: We didn’t know she had cancer, it’s shocking!
Sonali Bendre has been diagnosed with cancer which has left Bollywood and the whole nation in shock.
Everybody is sending her prayers and wishing her a speedy recovery. After she announced it on Instagram, wishes poured in for the actress from the industry. She also left her spot from the judges’ panel on India’s Best Dramebaaz and Huma Qureshi took her place. Like every one of us, others on the judges’ panel were equally clueless about Sonali’s condition. Omung Kumar, who is also one of the judges in the show, told Mumbai Mirror how none of them were aware of it. He said, ” We shot for four episodes together before she was replaced. We were laughing, having fun, even discussing our respective shoes. I don’t think she knew about it (the diagnosis) at the time. Later, we were told that she had left for New York for some tests and a second opinion, but we didn’t know she had cancer. It’s shocking. I know she’s a fighter and will come out of it.”
Vivek Oberoi, who is also a judge on the show, is pretty sure Sonali will beat Cancer.
“She has never ceased to amaze me with her positivity and strength. She is one of the strongest women I know. A Wonder Woman who does it all…and does it very well… Cancer will surely lose this fight, “the actor added. It definitely is an upsetting piece of news for everyone who know Sonali or who have watched her shows and movies.
Akshay Kumar was the first one to meet Sonali when he learned about her illness.
Both of them are presently in NYC and when the actor heard about Sonali, he couldn’t stop himself from meeting her. According to Mumbai Mirror, Abhishek Bachchan too, who is a close friend of the Behls, flew to New York two weeks back to meet them.
