Sonaali’s biggest inspiration to set foot in television has been her brother, but wanted to make a name for herself in the industry before getting noticed as the actor's sister. "I did not want to get introduced to the audience as Anand Suryavanshi's sister, I wanted my work to speak for me first", says Sonaali. Talking about her career move to television, she says, "I have done few commercial ads, and was pursuing a career in digital graphics; but when I got my first break in television with the Cinevistaas project Vivaah, I decided to grab the offer. I have always wanted to work with Cinevistaas as I feel they make meaningful serials". When asked how she would rate her brother in acting, she was quick to say, “I would give him 8 on 10 for his acting skills”.
However, Big Brother Anand says that “I will not say that I am her inspiration, but yes, I encouraged her to get into the industry”. When asked to rate her sister he says, “Honestly speaking, I do not want to rate her. I can only say that she is doing a good job in Vivaah and I wish that she continues to give her best to the industry”.
Well, this is a great brother-sister bonding indeed, and we wish Sonaali a great future!!
