Sonalee Kulkarni has consistently displayed her versatility and depth as an actress whether she's portraying a supportive wife, a strong-willed lover, or a woman on a journey of self-discovery, she brought out the "act" in actress effortlessly.

Starting her career with a cameo on Gadhavach Lagn, the Marathi industry was not ready for the exceptional artist she was going to be.
