Sonali Bendre binges on fantasy fiction during hard periods

Sonali Bendre says whenever she goes through a stressful period, she reads fantasy fiction books. The actress, who had penned the book “The Modern Gurukul: My Experiments with Parenting” last year, was speaking during a book launch, reports IANS.

When asked if there is any particular genre that she would like to read or would want her son Ranveer to read, she said: “Whenever I go through a stressful or hard period, I binge on fantasy fiction, come out refreshed and face the world. There are lot of genres that I read depending on what catches my attention, but ever since I became a mother, the reading habit has become kind of dodgy…” As far as her son is concerned, she is just happy ” if he reads whatever he reads is great because I love books”.

“My father was in the government service and we would get transferred every two years. My best friends have been my books. I felt that I could relate to a lot of stuff and mentally, I could deal with a lot of stuff because I was reading so much so I would love him to have this habit,” said the actress, who became a mother in 2005.
