Sonali Bendre Behl, who was diagnosed with high grade cancer, returned to Mumbai after undergoing treatment in New York for about five months. The actress was snapped at the city's airport with her husband Goldie Behl.

Behl confirmed that the treatment had ended and the actress was recovering well. However, she will have to undergo regular checkups to ensure that there is no relapse. In the first week of July, Sonali had revealed that she has been diagnosed with a "high grade cancer" and was undergoing treatment in New York. In an emotional statement, the actor had then said the cancer metastised which "we frankly did not see coming."

Sharing the news of her return on Instagram, Sonali said:

They say "Distance makes the heart grow fonder". It sure does. But let's never underestimate what distance teaches you. Being away from home in the city of New York, I realized I was walking amongst so many stories. Each trying to write their own chapter in different ways. Each struggling to do it but never giving up. Each taking it #OneDayAtATime. And now I'm on my way back to where my heart is. It's a feeling I can't describe in words but I'm going to try - it's the joy to see my family and friends again, the excitement to do what I love and mainly the gratitude for the journey I've had up until this moment. The fight is not yet over...but I'm happy and looking forward to this happy interval :) It's time to learn that there is a new normal out there and I can't wait to embrace it and #SwitchOnTheSunshine. #NowPlaying #AdventureOfALifeTime🎵 And as my adventure with life continues these words by Chris Martin hit home, "Everything you want is a dream away. Under this pressure, under this weight We are diamonds taking shape..."
