Sonali originally belongs from Nagpur, Maharashtra. She is also an MBA degree holder from Nagpur University, as well as a popular filmmaker and an ideal homemaker, who takes care of her sons.
When Sonu was pursuing Engineering, he had found the love of his life in Sonali and they had started dating. Both of them were college-goers back then when they had met in Nagpur.
In a generation where people are into casual hookups and have commitment phobia, marrying your first love, still seems life a fairytale for many. Well, Sonu was lucky to get married to his first love.
After being there for each other through thick and thin, the duo had tied the nuptial knot on September 25, 1996. Sonali was lucky for him as his journey in the industry had kickstarted in 1999.
Sonu and Sonali are blessed with two sons, whom they have named Ishant and Ayaan. However, they prefer to keep their kids away from the attention of the media.
In an interview with The Times Of India, Sonu Sood had talked about the co-operative behaviour of his wife when they had moved into a small 1 BHK apartment after their marriage.
In Sonu Sood's words, ''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 have food for 10 extra people.''
While the country was engulfed with the deadly virus leading to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was Sonu, who had come forward to help the migrant labourers in getting back to their homes.
While the actor helped everyone selflessly, it was his wife, Sonali Sood, who had given him the strength to pursue his heart’s calling and help those in need.
While Sonu hasn't let his stardom affect his personal bond with Sonali, she had also supported him when he was not popular. Moreover, she never complained about him for not being into PDA.
After working in the industry for more than 21 years, Sonu's estimated net worth is around Rs 130.339 crores and his yearly salary is reported to be more than 12 crores approximately.
