In city to promote a mustard oil brand, Sonali Bendre shares "I am genetically blessed with a fit body." Actor and now a popular television face Sonali Bendre was at JW Marriott, Chandigarh on Friday.
Talking about her being in shape, Bendre says, "After giving birth to Ranvir-my six-year-old boy-my measurements did change, but working out three days a week got me back in shape."
She says she doesn't like 'gyming' but after becoming a mother "one has to". On her growing association with TV, in shows like India's Got Talent and Kya Masti Kya Dhoom, she says, "Small screen gives me more time with my son, who is my priority. The first seven years of a child are vital in developing emotional and intelligence quotient, it's important to be around him."
Sonali's prettiness is also a reflection of her contentment mantra. "I did a few movies but I am happy with whatever I did. I am satisfied, as I feel I have got more than I aspired for," she says.
A foodie, she goes on to add, "I am very happy to be married in a Punjabi family; it's so interesting discussing food all the time. After every meal we are worried about what to cook next!"
Having left the film industry at a time when she was doing quite well, Sonali has no regrets, "I feel once an actor always an actor. So, there is nothing like a 'comeback' for me. I am in a comfort zone and I want to stay there."
"My husband [Goldie Behl] often tells me to get back to acting in films but I am an extremely private person and have to be really comfortable with my co-star and the people I work with," says Sonali, who is not a stickler for meaty roles.
"It's great to play the female protagonist but nothing is bigger and better than the story; a small role can leave a mark too."
On her future projects with director-producer husband, she says, "I work for our company but I don't believe in carrying a designation, as it brings along responsibility. I have a wonderful relationship with my hubby, not getting too involved in each other's work keeps it simple."
