A family member said that actress and BJP leader Sonali Phogat died of a heart attack on Monday night in Goa. Phogat and some of her employees had gone to Goa. She had gone there for a party. She turned 43.
Phogat grew up in a middle-class family in the village of Bhuthan, which is near Fatehabad in the state of Haryana. In Haryana’s 2019 assembly election, she ran against Kuldeep Bishnoi in the Adampur constituency on a BJP ticket. Bishnoi had just switched from the Congress to the BJP. After Bishnoi quit being the representative for Adampur, he became friends with Sonali Phogat, who was his biggest rival.
In terms of politics
In 2019, the 43-year-old actor ran for office for the first time against Kuldeep Bishnoi, a three-term MLA and the son of a former two-time chief minister. This was one of the most watched races in Haryana.
Even though Phogat lost the election, she still had a lot of loyal supporters in Adampur and the rest of the state. Her popularity was largely due to the fact that she became an internet sensation.
Sonali Phogat and Bishnoi met last week because there were rumours that she would run as the BJP’s candidate in Adampur in the upcoming byelections, the dates of which have not yet been made public.
Sonali Phogat became well-known when she was chosen as a “wild card” contestant for Bigg Boss 14. When TikTok was still available in India, she had a lot of followers.
Sonali, one of Aly Goni’s fellow contestants, said she liked him even though she knew he was in love with Jasmin Bhasin soon after she joined Bigg Boss 14. Jasmin was kicked off the show on the same day that Sonali joined the competition.
a recent social media post
A few hours before she died, she posted a video to her official Instagram account. She was wearing a pink safa, and the song “Rukh se jara nikab to hata do mere hazoor” by Mohammad Rafi was playing in the background. Her Twitter profile picture now shows her in a different outfit.
In June 2020, Sonali Phogat attacked Sultan Singh, who was the secretary of the Balsamand market. This made a lot of noise. Reports say that she hit him with her slipper and said that he had abused her and thrown things at her. Videos of the event were shared a lot on social media.
Both the mandi secretary and the BJP leader had filed complaints against the other.
