Sonali Bendre announced in July that she had been diagnosed with a ‘high grade’ cancer.

Producer Goldie Behl has urged people to be more responsible about the content they share on social media platforms. Behl, husband of Bollywood actor Sonali Bendre, who is undergoing treatment for a ‘high grade’ cancer, asked people to not spread or believe in rumours.

"I appeal to all to please use social media more responsibly. Let us not believe in rumours and spread them, unnecessarily hurting the sentiments of those involved. Thank you," he tweeted Saturday.

The filmmaker's tweet comes after BJP MLA Ram Kadam posted a message on Twitter which read, "Sonali Bendre, the actress who ruled Hindi and Marathi cinema was no more."

He later clarified his tweet, writing, "About Sonali Bendre ji. It was rumour. Since last two days... I pray to God for her good health and speedy recovery."

Sonali is currently receiving treatment for cancer in New York. She posed for a photograph for friend Sussanne Khan on Friday. Sonali revealed to the world in July that she has been diagnosed with cancer. “Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. 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 wrote in her post.
