As Hum Saath Saath Hain actress, Sonali Bendre, rings in her birthday with the New Year, best friend Sussane Khan praises her warrior spirit through a warm birthday post with a series of fun moments from Sonali’s birthday bash last night. Close friends and celebrities including Gayatri Oberoi, Kunal Kapoor, Naina Bachchan and Hrithik Roshan among others, joined Sonali for her birthday along with Sonali’s husband Goldie Behl and best friend Sussane Khan.

In the pictures that Sussane shared, Sonali is seen without her wig and we can’t help marvel at her courage and confidence. Giving fans a glimpse of the party, Sussane shared the pictures in a post on her Instagram handle and wrote a heartfelt caption that read, “Happy happiest birthday to our most precious, gorgeous warrior princess @iamsonalibendre… sonzyyy you are my inspiration, my fireball..may we all continue to enhance and motivate each other, while we change the meaning of ‘play’ …and so in pursuit of our own unique diverse state of ‘curation’….Amen 2019 is finally here… #prettysoulsonly #grace #perserverance #toloveunconditionally #newyearseve2019” (sic). The caption was flooded with heart and celebration emojis undoubtedly.

The past year was a challenging one for Sonali as she was diagnosed with cancer but not the one to give up easily, Sonali was seen living up each day with gratitude and full of inspiration. Her motive was to “switch on the sunlight” or as she captioned most of her Instagram posts throughout her treatment days in New York. Keeping her fans updated through her social media posts, Sonali’s girl gang, apart from her husband and son, were seen as her biggest support. Currently, Sonali is off chemo and is back in Mumbai in the company of her son, husband and pet dog.
