She was diagnosed with cancer in 2018, spoke about how life changed for her and how it gave her the “patience to look for the light at the end of the tunnel.”

Through the video, which she calls ‘note to self’, Sonali Bendre talks about how in the past two years she found her new normal. Sharing the video on social media, the actress wrote, “Note to self. P.S. For the rest of you, listen to your body and go for regular check ups, early detection helps!”

In the video, she can be heard saying, “Change is the only constant in life and how life has changed. It’s been almost two years. These two years have taught me many lessons. Gave me the patience to look for the light at the end of the tunnel. In this, I found my new normal and the strength to switch on the sunshine every day. The journey of knowing who I am reminds me that I am much more than this. For all of us going through this, let’s remind us that cancer doesn’t define us.”
