New York: Sonali Bendre, who is currently undergoing treatment for her cancer in New York, sported a new look that was seen in her Instagram post.
Sonali has often used Instagram to thank her family and friend who have been supportive of her and this time, in a lengthy post she thanked Priyanka Chopra for introducing her to the stylist who gave her the new look.
Because of chemotherapy, Sonali Bendre sported a bald look in her previous posts, but now the actor has decided to use a wig when she feels like it. In her post, Sonali states that “Vanity is my favorite sin.”
“When I was testing out the wigs, I had a brief moment of self-doubt. ‘Am I vain for wanting to look good?’ As part of the entertainment industry, you’re always expected to look good. Maybe that has been ingrained in me? But then I gave it a thought and I realized I like looking good for me. If I’m in the mood to wear a scarf, I will. If I want to walk around bald and free, I will,” she wrote, adding a thank you note for Priyanka.
“Vanity is my favourite sin.” – Al Pacino Well, it might not be my all-time favourite sin (that would be gluttony 😋), but who doesn’t like looking good? The way we look has a profound psychological impact on us… A little vanity here and there does no one any harm. It’s important to do what makes you happy, even if it’s something as simple as wearing a wig, bright red lipstick, high heels…. All that white noise doesn’t make a difference in the larger picture. No one can tell you what’s right or wrong for you. When I was testing out the wigs, I had a brief moment of self-doubt… “Am I vain for wanting to look good?” As part of the entertainment industry, you’re always expected to look good… Maybe that has been ingrained in me? But then I gave it a thought and I realized I like looking good for me. If I’m in the mood to wear a scarf, I will. If I want to walk around bald and free, I will. Only you know what would make you feel good, and what works best for you. So take every opportunity you can to #SwitchOnTheSunshine. #OneDayAtATime 🙏🌞 Thank you @priyankachopra for connecting me with the amazing @bokheehair, who created my new look.
