Mumbai, Jan 4: Today is a special day for Actress Sonali Bendre. Sonali turned 44-year-old today and the year is special for her especially in terms of her successful fight with cancer. A few days back actress Sonali Bendre Behl beamed with joy, flashed smiles, gave a thumbs up and joined her hands in reverence as she arrived in India last month in December after she left for New York to seek treatment of a high-grade cancer.Sonali, known for films like "Sarfarosh", "Hum Saath-Saath Hain" and "Duplicate", has been putting up a brave fight against metastatic cancer for months.She arrived in India an all-black look and flaunted her shaved head with as much confidence and bravado as she has been showcasing to her fans via social media. She was joined by her film producer husband Goldie Behl.The paparazzi went clickety-click as Sonali made her way to the car and she obliged with a heartwarming smile and gratitude.The actress underwent treatment in New York.
Sonali is married to producer Goldie Behl. They have one son Ranveer together.
Sonali was one of the leading actress of 90s era and many famous men were allegedly madly in love with the actress.
Among the many males that were madly in love with beautiful Sonali, Raj Thackeray's name is also in the list. According to reports, Raj Thackeray was in love with Sonali. Many people say that Sonali got films offers in Bollywood due to proximity with Raj Thackeray. While others allege that after seeing Sonali in films, Raj allegedly fell in love with her. When he fell in love with Sonali, Raj was already married. Reports claim that he wanted to marry her but uncle Bal Thackeray advised him against it and told him that it will impact the image of his party.
The next name is cricketer Shoib Akhtar. Pakistani bowler Shoaib Akhtar revealed that he was a die-hard fan of Sonali Bendre, the beautiful Bollywood actress. The fondness grew into love and that too one-sided but Shoaib was not ready to give up, wanting to meet her.
The feelings didn’t stop there, he even started keeping her picture in a wallet and was even thinking of kidnapping her. They finally met during one of the matches between India and Pakistan but it ended as an official meeting rather than a personal affair as cricketer couldn’t confess his love while the actress was never interested in this bowler.
Moving on to next, it is alleged that Sonali had a big crush on Sunil Shetty. After several romantic films together, like Takkar, Sapoot, Qahar and Bhai, Sonali Bendre couldn't help falling head over heels for macho-man Sunil Shetty. But she chose to remain a silent admirer rather than break Sunil's marriage to Mana, his childhood sweetheart. Perhaps, Sunil too may have given her a second thought had Mana not already been there in his life. He wouldn't have been the first person to have thought so, either. Govinda had once confessed in an interview that had he not been married he would have proposed to Sonali.
