Time has not dimmed her vivacious beauty, nor has the emperor of maladies sullied it. Sonali Bendre, as stylish as the next Bollywood diva out on a stroll in the presence of cameras, thanked fans, family and friends for their unwavering support when she faced mortality. She’s right, too: her time, so well won in adv­ersity, is now.

We talked about Sonali Ben­dre sometime back, lauding her spirit at staring down the ‘emperor’, and of the unfli­n­ch­ing support she gets from husband Goldie Behl. She’s back in Mumbai, having ric­hly earned that thumbs up.

A flaxen-haired Rishi Kapoor is proof of Father Time’s impartiality, but in New York they made a pretty picture: Neetu Kapoor, Sonali Bendre and her husband Goldie Behl. And what, pray, had brought about a sudden bite of the Big Apple? Rishi is ailing, comes the whisper.

When the emperor of maladies lays its dire finger upon anyone, it needs a reserve of inner steel and loving care to stare him down at his court. Irrfan, being treated in London, may have lost some weight, but not his good cheer. Sonali Bendre, who is in New York, has been parrying the adva­nces of ‘Big C’ with the adoring support of her cute son, Ranveer Behl. May victory be theirs.
