‘Bigg Boss 14’ contestant Haryana’s Sonali Phogat recently opened up about missing her late husband, on the show. While speaking to Rahul Vaidya, Sonali broke down into tears as well.
In a special masala video aired Wednesday, Sonali told Rahul that her husband had been a great support as she ventured into acting and politics. She told him, “I kept crying for years and my eyesight was affected. I did not want to continue any of this work. But then, my mother-in-law encouraged me. She insisted I go ahead with my political career as he (husband) wanted me to join politics.”
While crying, she further said, “Unke guzarne k baad mai raat ko soyi nahi kaafi time tak. Abhi bhi farm pe jaati hu to kamre, bed se uthne ka mann nahi karta (I could not sleep for a long time after he passed away. Even now, I do not want to step out of our room when I visit the farm).”
“I am now fulfilling all his dreams…the farm, all those trees. He wanted all of this,” she added.
Watching her cry, fellow contestants Jasmin Bhasin, Aly Goni, and Rahul Mahajan came and asked Rahul not to make her cry. As she continued crying, Aly assured her that she is not alone, and the contestants are there for her.
Earlier, Sonali had told Hindustan Times, “I became associated with politics, and my husband supported me here as well. But after he died, I saw the reality of people and how they view a woman. If a woman is good-looking and alone, she is not allowed to live. She is mentally tortured and wrong things are said about her. People make all kinds of attempts to force you to sit at home or take advantage of you. After my husband passed away, I faced many such hardships, which have made me stronger.”
