Actress Sonali Bendre who was undergoing treatment for a high grade cancer for months in New York, returned to Mumbai on Monday morning. She beamed with joy, flashed smiles, gave a thumbs up, and was thankful for all the love from fans who were waiting outside for her.

Sonali, known for her performances in films like Sarfarosh, Hum Saath Saath Hain and Duplicate, has been putting up a brave fight against metastatic cancer for months. She was seen in an all-black look, flaunting her shaved head with much confidence and bravado, just like she has been showing to her fans on social media. She was joined by her film producer husband Goldie Behl.

The actress also shared the pictures of her in the airport before returning to India.

According to a report by NDTV, Goldie Behl told ANI that Sonali’s treatment is complete for now but she will have regular check-ups. He said, “Sonali is doing good. She is back for good. She is recovering very well. For now, treatment has ended. But the disease can come back so regular check-ups will be done.”

Earlier in July, the actress took to Twitter and Instagram to announce that she had been diagnosed with a high-grade cancer that has metastasized, and was undergoing treatment in New York. The 43-year-old actress had said she did not see this coming, and that life throws surprises at you when you least expect it. She further said that a nagging pain led her to run a few tests and an unexpected diagnosis thereafter.

While the actress was in New York, she hung out with Priyanka Chopra and Sophie Turner. She even met actor Rishi Kapoor, who was also in New York for medical treatment. Sonali also attended Priyanka Chopra’s bridal shower.

Apart from Bollywood, Sonali has also made a mark in films like  Kadhalar Dhinam and Kannodu Kanbathellam in Tamil, Shankar Dada MBBS in Telugu and Anahat in Marathi. Sonali was last seen in a cameo role in Akshay Kumar’s Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Dobaara.
