Sonali Bendre: Happy to take a break from acting


Actress Sonali Bendre is quite content taking a sabbatical from acting, which she considers both "tedious" and "joy". The 40-year-old actress, who took a break from movies after giving birth to her son in 2005, was last year seen on the TV drama show 'Ajeeb Daastaan Hai Ye'. "Last year I did a fiction show which was all about acting. I think I am quite happy to take a break from it. It's very tedious," Sonali said in an interview.

"Acting has its own joy where you're playing a different character without actually bearing the consequences of being that person. That's a great place to be in and for an actor it's the best thing," she said. The 'Sarfarosh' actress made a special appearance in the 2013 Akshay Kumar-starrer 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara'.

She will now be seen judging a children's reality show, which she finds easier to shoot as she can spend time with her family too. "It (acting) takes a certain amount of time. This (the show) I do one day a week. We try and work around the kids' timings. When you have to shoot for one day in a week according to the kids' schedule, you can adjust easily. But not working everyday...I think my child also needs me.

" Ever since her break from acting, Sonali has mostly been seen as a judge in various reality TV shows and the actress said that was something which "just happened." "I never thought I would be doing judging, it just happened. I think I came in with a certain honesty. If there is something I don't know, I say it. I am human," she said. "Sometimes I feel the decision I am taking might be wrong, but right now my heart says this. Sometimes it goes wrong too...I can't be expected to be right every time. I need to be honest and truthful to myself," she said.
