My sun, my moon, my stars, my sky... Okay, maybe I'm being a bit melodramatic, but your 13th birthday deserves this." Sonali mentioned that she misses being with her son on his special day and wrote: "Wow, you're a teenager now. Will need some time to wrap my head around that fact. I can't tell you enough how proud I am of you... Your wit, your humour, your strength, your kindness, and even your mischief. Happy happy birthday, my not-so-little one. It's the first one that we're not together... I miss you terribly. Lots and lots of love always and forever.... biiiiig hug!"
Recently, Sonali Bendre shared a picture of herself and Ranveer and talked about her treatment and the way her son was dealing with it. She said, "I believe that it's imperative to keep kids involved in a situation like this. They are a lot more resilient than we give them credit for... In our effort to protect them from the pain and realities of life, we might end up doing the opposite," read an excerpt from Sonali's post.
