Mumbai, Dec 17 (IANS) Actress Sonali Bendre says her hectic professional life doesn’t allow her to explore her culinary skills much, but whenever she can, she enjoys cooking for her 10-year-old son Ranveer.
The actress, who is currently seen on the small screen as a judge in the second season of reality show “India’s Best Dramebaaz”, has been named the brand ambassador of Dr. Oetker, a purveyor of western cuisine in India. It launched its first advertising campaign for their brand FunFoods here on Wednesday.
Despite professional commitments, the busy mother makes sure to bond with her son over cooking too.
“Even though my schedule doesn’t allow me to step into the kitchen very often, I like cooking for my son Ranveer. What he likes is fun stuff unlike the regular home-cooked food.
“I make him a lot of sandwiches and roti wraps which suits him perfectly. It also gives us a chance to bond together over cooking. Our personal favourite is roti wrap with Tandoori Mayonnaise – fun to create and tasty to eat,” Sonali said in a statement.
The TV commercial, featuring Sonali’s journey from being a ‘mom’ to a ‘master-mom’, will be released across India on Friday.
