Bollywood actress Huma Qureshi, who has replaced cancer-stricken Sonali Bendre as a judge in TV show India's Best Dramebaaz, said she was praying for her speedy recovery. "I am saddened. My prayers are with her. She will return shortly," Huma told reporters on the sidelines of a function in Bhopal.
Sonali, 43, took to her Twitter account to break the news that she had been diagnosed with high-grade cancer that has metastasised.
Huma said she had grown up watching movies of Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol in 1990s and (late) Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit-Nene are her role models.
Responding to a query on the condition of women in the society, the actress said a movement should be started from every home to ensure that women members get the respect they deserved. "I feel that we should empower our mothers, daughters and wives at home. If we start treating them in a fair manner, I feel, it would bring a change. This is not a big task," she added.
