After penning a book on parenting, actress Sonali Bendre says she might come up with another piece but it will not be a fictional novel.
The 41-year-old actress, who was speaking at the success bash of her book “The Modern Gurukul – My Experiments with Parenting”, says there are a couple of ideas which she will eventually turn into a book.
“I am very sure that I am not writing fiction. But I don’t know what it is that I will write (next). To be honest there are a couple of ideas but just the thought of putting the time and discipline is putting me off,” Sonali told reporters.
“I just finished my two shows, this book has been there, I will just hibernate for sometime and do nothing… May be something will fall into place because even this book was a compilation and it turned into something else.”
Sonali has a son named Ranveer with her husband- producer Goldie Behl. The actress says even though they both belong to the film industry, they do not treat Ranveer as a star kid.
Asked what are the steps she takes to not let her child get the impression of being a star kid, Sonali said, “Goldie makes sure every time he is being clicked he says, ‘it is because your mother is famous they are clicking your pictures, you have to do something too’.
“I tell my husband he is being harsh but he says it is not harsh, it is correct. He has to understand it is reflected glory.”
The “Sarfarosh” actress, who took a sabbatical from movies after giving birth to her son in 2005, says she was a fearless individual who became fearful after becoming a mother.
“They are such horrifying things everyday we hear about, some bombs going off in schools or roads and you constantly keep thinking that it could be my child too. What is the world going to…
“I come from a very middle class family with no connection to film industry. I came out there, never had a mentor or camp but had good friends. I was fearless. I think I became fearful when I turned a parent, you start fearing for your child, it changes you.”
Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis along with his banker-wife Amruta was also present at the event.
The actress turned an author last year with her book on parenting, in which she shared her personal experiences of raising her son.
