Ever since news of Sonali Bendre's cancer diagnosis became public, actors and fans have been keeping a close eye on her health.
But there are always some who end up spreading false rumours. Apparently, there was news of Sonali passing away recently to which a member of the Indian Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), MLA Ram Kadam posted a message on Twitter which read, "Sonali Bendre, the actress who ruled Hindi and Marathi cinema was no more."
In response to the rumours, Sonali's husband Goldie Behl tweeted asking people to be careful on social media.
"I appeal to all to please use social media more responsibly. Let us not believe in rumours and spread them, unnecessarily hurting the sentiments of those involved. Thank you."
Later the MLA clarified his tweet saying it was only a rumour and that he's praying for her recovery.
Just two days ago Sonali posted on Instagram sharing a picture of the next book #SonalisBookClub will be reading.
The Bollywood actor released a statement on social media two months ago saying that she's been diagnosed with high grade cancer and that she is undergoing treatment in New York.
She is one of two Bollywood stars whom the fraternity is praying for; earlier this year, Hindi Medium actor Irrfan Khan had announced that he's been diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Tumour.
