For acid attack survivor Sonali Mukherjee, her recent wedding holds testimony to the adage ‘All’s well that ends well.’
From sharing centre stage on TV with megastar Amitabh Bachchan in Kaun Banega Crorepati to marrying the love of her life, acid attack survivor Sonali Mukherjee’s life story seems next to a fairy tale.
Attacked for resisting sexual approaches by three of her neighbours, Sonali who hails from Bokaro in Jharkhand had acid flung on her face in the year 2003, when she was 17 years old.
The attack left her partially deaf and blind and melted her eyelids, mouth and ears.
Her father sold land and jewellery to provide for her reconstructive treatment and she managed to win Rs 25 lakhs on the TV show KBC along with a celebrity partner the former Miss Universe Lara Dutta.
