Sonali Bendre has certainly been a rock through her cancer treatment ever since she announced about her high-grade metastatic diagnosis last year. The actress who made several hit appearances during the 1990s and early 2000s, is likely to get back on the screen, although there is no surety about what that will be. While her friends including Sussanne Khan, Gayatri Oberoi and others have been pillars of strength, Sonali recently shared a post about celebrity make-up artist Mickey Contractor. She called him a “man with killer wit”.
Posting a photo and sharing how he is a friend like family, she wrote, “Sometimes, you strike a chord with someone and that bond simply stays for life. @mickeycontractor is just that person for me. We go back a looooong way. The depth and breadth of his knowledge is overwhelming and intriguing at the same time! A man with killer wit and someone who calls a spade a spade. So when we met for a shoot recently, we just picked up from where we had left off… reliving all those memories. One thing hasn’t changed… even after all these years, I completely trust his genius. From doing my eyebrows for the VERY first time, to giving me my first quick haircut now that my hair is growing back, I’m glad we’ve not run out of firsts. I love you, Mickey! It’s friends like you who make the journey so beautiful. #FriendsLikeFamily”
Talking about Sonali and sharing how she “conquered” her treatment, Mickey too shared the same picture and praised her for her “grit.” “She fought & she conquered. Your grit and positivity are admirable. Stay blessed and full of good health my darling. Love you loads!!! @iamsonalibendre.”
Sonali was last seen on the big screens as a cameo appearance in Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobara in 2013. She was also judging for the reality show India’s Best Dramebaaz till she retired last year for her cancer diagnosis.
