Sonali Bendre: When my hair was gone, I thought my brand was over

From being an actress to a caring mother, Sonali Bendre has played multiple roles, both on and off screen.
Last year, the actress was diagnosed with cancer that had metastasised but even then the actress took up the role of spreading awareness about the disease through her journey.
Now, at the India Today Conclave 2019, Sonali spoke about how she has seen it all, from being a famous face on the screen to losing her hair and getting treated in New York, and how she thought her brand was over.
She said, “I have endorsed every hair product in my career. Looks have been my bread, butter, jam. Looks are important in our society. But considering that that was the career, it has been scary. Because considering the world as I know it turned upside down or was no more there and when I came to know that I have cancer, I got my team together and told them about it.”
She added, “I told them that I have a disease, as a brand I endorse healthy products and a certain way of looks. I told them my brand was over. I told them that I was going for this treatment and I don’t know where this goes. They told me that we are in it with you and they have been with me wonderfully.”
