Sonu Sood Marriage: The First Love Is Forever For This Actor

Sonu Sood came to Mumbai some time in the late 1990s after the completion of his graduation in Nagpur with a dream of becoming an actor. He decided to take small steps though and first became a model. A few years into modelling and his plan worked – he got noticed by a casting director of a Tamil film, and he made his debut with the Tamil film Kallazhagar in the year 1999. There was no turning back after that, and since then Sonu has become one of the mainstay villains in Telugu, Tamil and Hindi films, and has also appeared in Kannada and Punjabi films.
In his personal life, Sonu Sood has been married for over a decade with Sonali, whom he met during his graduation days in Nagpur. The couple have been happily married with two sons, and this is their love story. Read on for more about Sonu Sood marriage with Sonali.

Sonu Sood – From Moga to Mumbai


Sonu Sood was born on 30th July 1973 at the town of Moga in Punjab as the only son among the three children of his parents. Sonu’s mother worked as a teacher and his father was into textile business. He had his early education from Punjab, and in early 1990s came to Nagpur to pursue engineering from Yeshwantrao Chavan College. It is here that he started participating in college modelling events that slowly developed into an interest in acting.

After his completion of his graduation he took the decision to settle in Mumbai, and soon became a model. He would often visit film studios to drop his photographs in order to entice casting directors. In the year 1999, he was offered a role in the Tamil film Kallazhagar, which became the first film of his career. He made his debut in Hindi films with Shaheed-E-Azam (2002). It was the Telugu film Super (2005) that catapulted him to fame, and since then Sonu has worked in over 30 films in five different languages.

Sonali – The First And Only Love Of His Life


Back in early 1990s, Sonu was still a student at his Engineering college in Nagpur, weaving his dreams to make it big in Bollywood. It was during this phase that he met a Sonali, a Telugu girl, who was pursuing her MBA from a college in Nagpur. Since Sonu was no celebrity back then, and has maintained a graceful privacy about personal life, little is known about Sonu and Sonali’s courtship. He shared in an interview though that she is the ‘first girl’ who came in his life, and the doting husband described his wife as ‘mature and intelligent’.

“Initially, she was not happy when I wanted to be an actor, but today, she’s proud of me.”
– Sonu Sood about his wife Sonali


Sonu and Sonali tied the knot some time in 1996 – way before Sonu entered the film and modelling industry. After their marriage the couple moved into a 1BHK flat in Mumbai, which they shared with three Bollywood strugglers. Later Sonu shared in an interview that his wife never complained about it, and has always been supportive. The couple were eventually blessed with two sons Ishant and Ayaan, and have been one happy family ever since.

Life Together


Despite being one of the most handsome actors in the country, Sonu has seldom been linked with any fellow actress and is known for his humble off-screen persona. He will soon be seen sharing screen space with actor Jackie Chan in an Indo-Chinese production film Kung Fu Yoga, which is slated to release in the first quarter of 2017. Sonu has definitely reached greater heights in his career but keeps his feet grounded and is an hands-on father and husband. His wife Sonali is regularly seen accompanying him at public events but has maintains an air of privacy by being the silent supporter of her hubby. She married him when he was no star, and is still by his side being his constant source of encouragement. Now that is what is called being a true soulmate. Wishing the Sood family tons of happiness and the best for life’s pursuits.
