The actress on her book So Kul, a compilation of her columns in the Marathi daily Loksatta

Sonali Kulkarni

From an actress to an author—how did the transition happen?

It’s been a parallel journey. Writing has been a passion along with acting since college. In theatre and films you speak the lines given by the writer but this is my space.

What does So Kul stand for?

So Kul is an abbreviation of my name. It also stands for the ‘so cool’ attitude!

What are your columns about?

An assortment of politics, relationships, environment, experiences and memories. I prefer calling it a creative diary.

Why compile these columns into a book?

This wasn’t my idea. I got an overwhelming response from readers. The leading Marathi publishing house, Rajhans, offered to publish it.

Was establishing yourself as a serious columnist difficult?

Yes, the sceptics thought I had a ghost writer. I never wrote as an actress with a larger-than-life image. I had conversations with readers.
