The Broken News: Sonali Bendra ‘was scared’ about making OTT debut after recovering from cancer
The Broken News - Sonali Bendre.

Sonali Bendre is back in acting, this time making her OTT debut through The Broken News. The actress is coming back on screen after recovering from cancer. Speaking about her experience, Sonali said that she is scared.

Talking to Republic Network, Sonali said that she felt fear, nervousness and excitement at the same time. The actress said that she was scared whether she will be able to act again and wasn’t sure if she could give her best shot till she actually gave her shots.

Sonali has been dealing with memory loss, which stressed her out. The actress would wonder if she could remember her lines. Things became even more difficult since she was in a character on the show, which she did not have to be in if she did a reality show.

The actress underwent cancer surgery in 2018. She returned to India in the same year and only took up projects like hosting reality shows over acting in a film/show.

Sonali Bendre, who would remember all her lines pre-cancer, now has a different process as an actress. She found her changing pattern ‘uncomfortable’ and expressed the same during her interview.

The actress plays the role of an editor named Aamna Qureshi in the show. The Broken News released on Zee5 on Friday and is currently streaming on the OTT platform.

Many Bollywood actors were detected with cancer and braved it. A few examples of them are Sanjay Dutt, Mahima Chaudhary, Lisa Ray and Tahira Kashyap. Unfortunately, 2020 was also a year when two of Bollywood gems – Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor – passed away after complications, soon after being declared cancer-free.
