The actress and TV show judge, took to her social media outlet to share her side of the story and shed some light on the details of her ailment and her proposed treatment. 

Writing on her Instagram account, Sonali wrote:

"Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with a high grade cancer that has metastised [sic], which we frankly did not see coming. A niggling pain led to some tests, which led to this unexpected diagnosis. My family and close friends have rallied around me, providing the best support system that anyone can ask for. I am very blessed and thankful for each of them. "

The actress further added:

"There is no better way to tackle this, than to take swift and immediate action. And so, as advised by my doctors, I am currently undergoing a course of treatment in New York. We remain optimistic and I am determined to fight every step of the way. What has helped has been the immense outpouring of love and support I’ve received over the past few days, for which I am very grateful."

"I’m taking this battle head on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me."

Sonali is the second big-name from Bollywood in a span of a few months who has been diagnosed with some form of cancer - after Irrfan Khan recently stunned his fans by revealing his own rare condition related to the disease.

Sonali had already shot for a few episodes of 'India's Best Dramebaaz' - a new reality show she was judging - from which she has now taken a break, to pursue her treatment in New York.

Wishing her all the best in her treatment and hoping to see her well and healthy shortly.

Stay strong Sonali!
