Talking to us before entering Bigg Boss 14 house, she informed us, "I had to face a lot of problems after the video went viral. But I have no regrets for what I have done as it was about my esteem. Post that incident, a lot of people trolled me and I was mentally tortured. Par agar koi aurat akeli khadi hoti hai jiske sar par uske pati ka saaya nahi hai to uske liye ladai mushkil ho jaati hai. I can't even tell you the situation I had to face at that point of time. It was so painful that if I would not have been a strong person, I may not have been in this world today."

She went on saying, "Ever since I joined social media, it was for the first time when I was trolled. A lot of abuses were given to me. And I got disturbed as I had never heard such words in my family. And people love me for my work. But this one incident took away a lot of things. But now, I am out of it and finally getting the same love and respect. People are supporting me now. The case is on."
Sonali who has been surrounded by controversies doesn't mind sharing it on national television and feels her life journey could be a motivation for others. "My life has been like an open book. I have struggled a lot. Recently, I had to go through a lot for my self-respect and I didn't give up. In the house, if all these matters will come up I won't mind talking about it openly. We have come forward to give out a good message to society and if I will hide things, then that won't be okay. I am in fact going with an intention to keep my life journey in front of everyone. To tell the world how a farmer's daughter reached till here. I may be a motivation to many," Sonali concluded.
