Sonali Bendre, who is undergoing treatment in New York for metastatic cancer, spent an 'unconventional'Diwali this year. 

Sonali, who regularly shares her thoughts and updates about her treatment on Instagram,  posted photos of the intimate Diwali celebrations in New York. Sonali, her husband Goldie Behl and their son Ranveer did a customary puja on Diwali. 

Sonali wrote, "Diwali in New York happens much later than in Mumbai... Hence the late wish! It was quite an unconventional one... We didn't have Indian clothes, we had a small puja... But it was all heart. 

Happy Diwali everyone! May this year bring you good health, wealth and prosperity... Hope you celebrated this festival with your family and friends, and hope you cherish every moment of happiness with them!"

The 43- year-old actress was diagnosed with metastatic cancer in July. She has been in New York since then.

“I have recently been diagnosed with a high-grade cancer that has metastised, which we frankly did not see coming. A niggling pain led to some tests, which led to this unexpected diagnosis. My family and close friends have rallied around me, providing the best support system that anyone can ask for. I am very blessed and thankful for each of them,” she had revealed through an Instagram post in July.
