MUMBAI: Veteran actor Anupam Kher got the chance to spend some quality time with Sonali Bendre, who is currently undergoing metastatic cancer treatment in New York. The actor described Sonali as his hero after they met up on Saturday. He tweeted, “I have done few films with Sonali Bendre. We’ve met socially many times in Mumbai. She always has been bright and a very warm person. But it is only in the last 15 days that I got the opportunity to spend some quality time with her in New York. And I can easily say, ‘She is my hero’.”
