After acting and modelling Maria Goretti and Sonali Bendre have found passion in writing and even released their books.
VJ and model Maria Goretti launched her debut cookbook From My Kitchen To Yours in the company of her family and close friends in Mumbai.
'Food' was the most discussed topic at the launch. And almost everyone present had tasted Maria's food at some point in time and couldn't stop raving about it!
Maria's husband Arshad Warsi was his usual warm self and the couple's children, Zeke and Zene, charmed the guests as they read out their favourite passages from the book.
Given the number of friends from the industry who turned up to show their support at the book launch, we're assuming that Maria is indeed a really good cook and a wonderful person.
Meanwhile in another event, Sonali Bendre Behl celebrated the success of her book The Modern Gurukul, My Experiments With Parenting. Present at the book launch was Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis.

Wondering who these children are? They are Maria and Arshad’s children, Zeke and Zene. A friend of Maria’s, Mini Mathur is seen here helping Zene read a passage from the book.
The family that cooks together, stays together: Maria Goretti and Arshad Warsi with their lovely children Zeke and Zene, and publisher Ajay Mago.
There's a bun in the oven: Glowing mummy-to-be Genelia D'Souza, who is expecting her second child, with Maria.
Actor Tisca Chopra made a fashionable entry in Zara separates and her hair worn in a half-bun.
Sohail Khan and Kiran Rao were present too!
Actor Sagarika Ghatge was all smiles at the book launch.
And it looks like actor Shriya Saran did invest a lot of time putting her look for the launch together. We just couldn’t take our eyes off the golden shoes though.
Mandira Bedi can never go wrong with her outfit and hair-do, can she?
The more, the merrier: Maria flanked by her buddies including fashion designer Masaba Gupta, filmmaker and theatre director Roshan Abbas and wife Shaheen (in red), and publisher Ajay Mago.
Wonder what’s caught Kunal Khemu and Tusshar Kapoor’s attention? But they surely looked glued to something happening on-stage.
