When Sonu Sood and wife Sonali had to share a 1BHK flat with three other strugglers
Sonu Sood who celebrates his birthday today (30th July) is a national hero now. From sending migrants their home within the first wave of Coronavirus pandemic to making sure availability of medical assistance during the second wave, he has been on the forefront. Sonu Sood can also be a faithful household man.
He has been married since September 25, 1996. His spouse was initially hesitant when he stated that he would pursue a profession in Bollywood, however she supported him whole-heartedly. Sonali Sood was a pal of one of his classmates when he studied in the Yashwantrao Chavan Faculty of Engineering in Nagpur. They met and fell in love.
Later Sonu Sood moved to Mumbai with his spouse in 1996. He has stated that he shared a 1BHK flat with three different strugglers. Although it was tough, but his wife never complained. He told a daily paper, “She is an Andhra-ite and is the primary lady who got here into my life. Even after I got married, there were three struggling boys still staying with us in a 1BHK. She was supportive of that and even today, we always have food for at least 10 extra people made in our house as ours is an open house. Initially, she was not happy when I wanted to be an actor, but today she’s proud of me.”
Sonu’s wife is not very active on social media, she is not even seen in filmy parties. The couple have two kids, Ayaan and Ishaan. Sonu’s closely knitted family is indeed his pillar of strength.
