New Delhi : Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre's emotional message to the contestants of India’s Best Dramebaaz will melt your heart. Once, she used to judge the TV reality show and had to drop it after being diagnosed with 'high grade cancer'.

Sonali Bendre is currently undergoing cancer treatment in the US. Far away from India, she must be missing her people in this tough time. She shared a video message where she said that it is more important to participate than to win.

In her message she said, true winners are the ones who participate and take risks. One shouldn’t feel the pressure of winning or losing but must enjoy the process. The contestants have been chosen from across India, which makes them all winners, Sonali says in the video.

Also, the beautiful actress says that she misses the contestants and wishes she could be there to cheer them on.

Anupam Kher, who went to New Amsterdam for his new show, met the actress. “Sonali is a courageous and brave person. By brave, I do not mean strong in terms of physical strength. How you deal with life in difficult situation determines your true strength and the way Sonali is fighting is highly applaudable." Anupam told IANS over phone from New York.

In the video the actor is wearing a scarf and hat over her shaved head and she is looking extremely cute. She wrote in a recent post that she is apprehensive about wanting to look good during these difficult times. “Vanity is my favourite sin,” Sonali began her post by quoting Al Pacino. “Well, it might not be my all-time favourite sin (that would be gluttony), but who doesn’t like looking good?” she continued. “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.”

Sonali's husband, Goldie Behl, recently wrote on Twitter, “Thank you all for the love and support for Sonali. She is stable and is following her treatment without any complications. This is a long journey but we have begun positively."
