But her reality has been exclusively different from other actresses as she was caught by the Lisbon Police with her beau who was the most dreaded underworld gangster, Abu Salem. The duo was entering Portugal with fake documents, and then they were extradited to India. Monica Bedi has served her prison term because of these heavy charges against her.

Sometimes it is highly unbelievable that actresses like Sonali Bendre who have not even been in the news since so many years, had a short career, no controversial life, did good roles had faced criminal charges.

The reason is shocking as to why this actress was behind the bars as she was a victim of religious issues. Bendre was arrested by the police on the grounds that she was posing inappropriately for a magazine cover, as the pose was disturbing for some religious people so they filed a complaint. Later on, Sonali got bail and support from the industry but some continue to believe that she hurt the ‘religious sentiments’ of a certain group of people.
