Sonali Bendre has dedicated a heartwarming Instagram note to her sister, Rupa Randive, thanking her for her care and support throughout her cancer treatment. Quoting Australian poet Pam Brown, Sonali wrote: “An older sister is a friend and defender – a listener, conspirator, a counselor and a sharer of delights. And sorrows too.”
Sonali Bendre, known for movies like Sarfarosh, Hum Saath-Saath Hain and Duplicate, had been undergoing treatment for cancer in a New York hospital for the last five months. She had revealed on social media in April about her diagnosis. She returned to India on December 3.
“Rupa Tai has been all this and more,” wrote Sonali after the quote. She further said, “She dropped everything in a heartbeat to be with me on this journey. She has been my rock…my person… Rupa Tai was involved in my journey from when I was diagnosed to the time I was deciding the course of treatment to packing her bags and coming with me to New York. She was there from get-go.”
