It is good to have a woman supporter especially for the girls on Indian Idol. Sonali Bendre offers her unstinted support to the girl contestants and is always urging them on. She is particularly vocal in her support for Shini Kalvint the only married girl on the show. Perhaps, her own marital status helps her see Shini's position in a different light. But her maternal instinct was also on display the other night when she promptly got up and walked to Tulika Ganguly and put her arms around the sobbing girl.
Tullika had a particularly trying evening when first her best friend Mohit was in the danger zone and then later her friend Priyanka said she had switched loyalties to others. Comforting words from Sonali and a warm hug from Priyanka and all was well with Tulika's world. It takes a woman to understand a woman after all. Catch this dramatic episode of Indian Idol this Friday, December 12 at 9.00 pm only on Sony Entertainment Television.
