‘He took the news so maturely’: Sonali on telling son about ‘Big C’



New York: Actress Sonali Bendre, who is undergoing a metastatic cancer treatment in New York, on Thursday wrote about the “biggest dilemma” in connection with her cancer: how to break the news to her 12-year-old son, Ranveer Behl. Sonali, who has regularly posting updates on her life in New York, wrote: “From the moment he was born 12 years, 11 months and 8 days ago, my amazing @rockbehl took ownership of my heart.

From then on, his happiness and wellbeing have been the centre of anything @goldiebehl and I ever did.” Continuing, she wrote how difficult it was for her and her husband Goldie Behl about breaking the news. “When the Big C reared its ugly head, our biggest dilemma was what and how we were going to tell him.

As much as we wanted to protect him, we knew it was important to tell him the full facts. We’ve always been open and honest with him and this time it wasn’t going to be different But she was surprised. “He took the news so maturely and instantly became my source of strength and positivity for me.

In some situations now, he even reverses roles and takes on being the parent, reminding me of things I need to do!” “I believe that it’s imperative to keep kids involved in a situation like this. They are a lot more resilient than we give them credit for,” the actress wrote.

Ranveer is currently with his mother here during his summer vacation.
