Actress Namrata Shirodkar recently spent some time catching up with Sonali Bendre, who’s currently undergoing treatment for cancer in New York, and she came away smiling.
Talking about the “memorable” rendezvous, Namrata says, “She is a strong girl. She looks amazingly fit and ready to get back to normal life. I had such a lovely time with her. We discussed so many things. She told me the entire story of her illness and what gives her the strength, and I told her that she’s always in my prayers.”
The two actresses are more alike than not in more ways than one and Namrata agrees that there’s a deep bonding they share. She adds, “Just like me, she’s so typically Maharashtrian in so many ways. We chatted about everything under the sun. We even laughed about some shared recollections of the past.”
Namrata also says that she hopes to meet Sonali again very soon. “My son Gautam and I were to meet Sonali, her son Ranvir, and husband Goldie. But unfortunately, my family and I are going to be out of New York for two days. However, Sonali and I have promised each other a walk in Central Park, and we will do that soon.”...
