"It's been six months and I would like to inform everybody that Sonali is doing good and she is back for good. She is recovering very well. Thank you all for the love and support. Her treatment is over, for now, Sonali is absolutely fine. Just like what happens in such diseases -- regular checkups, regular scans that we have to do since this disease can come back," an elated Behl told media at Mumbai airport.
Goldie Behl further added, "For now there is nothing as such that she will have to go back for. I am very happy that she is back home. Like any other patient, she will have to go for regular checkups. She is a very strong and determined woman and I am very proud of her."
Sonali had earlier shared on Instagram that she is on her way to Mumbai. "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 realised I was walking amongst so many stories," she wrote.

Sonali Bendre further added, "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."

From doing films as different as chalk and cheese to redefining professionalism for working mothers to trying her hands at a radio show, Kareena Kapoor Khan does not want to stop there and she said in a recent interview that she would like to keep exploring "different things" till she is 70 years old.
Asked if she aspires to do something more, Kareena told IANS: "The idea today is only about content -- and being a part of good content, whether it is the web, cinema, stage or radio. I think today artists and actors are all about supporting content. I am just happy that I have got to try my hand... It's the first time for me. So, let's see... I would like to try different things till probably I am 70."
Kareena also praised digital platforms and added: "I am glad all this is opening up for us." She added: "The content in cinema and different platforms is changing. There are so many options to do what you want in today's time and I think it's the best time to be an actor."
Tiger Shroff recently started a joint venture of a chain of gyms in Mumbai with sister Krishna. At the event, Tiger showcased his skills of martial arts. Krishna and Tiger both are very passionate about mixed martial arts.
