Actress Sonali Bendre, who is making a comeback on silver screen with 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai 2', says she prioritises her personal life over her professional career.
“I definitely don’t want to do roles that I have played earlier. I would like to play my age which I am doing. Also, I have too many conditions, so unless it falls into my priorities I don’t do it (films). Either my son should have holiday when I am shooting or the shoot has to be in Mumbai,” Sonali commented.
The model-actress married director Goldie Behl in 2002 and gave birth to her son Ranveer in 2005.
The 37-year-old was last seen in a guest appearance of sorts in the Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Kal Ho Na Ho' (2003). At a time when actors like Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan are still going strong in the film industry, the scenario of older or married actress is different in Bollywood compared to Hollywood.
On which, Sonali says, “It’s a different kind of society we are moving towards. There are more and more interesting roles and different kind of films and roles are being written. May be the progress is not happening fast but its happening. Ten years ago, would have anyone imagined a film like English Vinglish but it is now being made. So changes are happening,” she said.
Sonali will be seen in the second installment of Milan Luthria’s crime drama, a sequel to the 2010 super hit film of the same name, along with Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi and Imran Khan in lead roles.
