Sonali Bendre pushing herself to hit the gym is inspirational
Last year Sarfarosh actress Sonali Bendre flew down to New York after she was diagnosed with cancer, and her battle with the Big C has since turned out to be an inspiration. The actress continues to motivate her fans through her posts on social media. In her recent video, she pushed herself to "switch on the sunshine, be proactive" and hit the gym.
Sonali starts her video saying how she was feeling low
Sonali, in the video, talked about how gloomy the day was, and that she woke up feeling exhausted since the progress was very slow. However, instead of being bogged down, she "wore the sunshine" (literally) and pushed herself for a workout.

Sonali embraces her 20-inch scar, calls it her "new normal"
To recall, Sonali was diagnosed with high-grade cancer last year, which she fought bravely with and emerged victorious. Talking about it, the actress said that at first, she didn't understand why she got cancer as she thought of herself as a pretty positive person. Post her return, when she flaunted her 20-inch scar on camera calling it her "new normal," appreciation came flooding in.
Ready to uncover my new reality, Sonali had captioned
The idea was almost preposterous. An almost bald head, barely any make-up and a huge scar was not the norm for @vogue. But, I guess that's my new normal. Of course I had my reservations, and, if I dare say, insecurities - but a candid conversation with the lovely ladies @priya_tanna and @anaitashroffadajania cleared my doubts. And before I knew it, I was standing in front of the camera, ready to uncover my new reality. The icing on the cake was the fact that I needed one-third of the time for hair and make-up😄. So I closed my eyes and jumped into it, full throttle, and this is the result. Thank you, @meghamahindru for telling my story; and thank you @ridburman for understanding my story and saying it so beautifully through your lens. If there's a piece of advice I can give you all after this, it would be to 'Find your new normal'. It's very liberating.
