After quitting Bollywood, actress Somy Ali is presently based out of the USA managing her NGO ‘No More Tears’
After getting ‘inspired’ by a teenage crush on Salman Khan, actress Somy Ali convinced her mother to allow her to shift her base to Mumbai. This was all when she was mere 16 years of age! The moment Somy Ali shifted to Mumbai, she was harbouring Bollywood dreams. After having given many auditions in the magical city of dreams Mumbai, destiny finally knocked at the doors of Somy Ali in the form of her Bollywood debut film ‘Krishan Avtaar’, where she played the memorable role of Sonia Sawant.
What followed after that were series of films including ‘Anth’, ‘Yaar Gaddar’, ‘Teesra Kaun’, ‘Aao Pyaar Karen’, ‘Andolan’ and many others. Even though she was at the threshold of becoming one of Bollywood’s topmost heroines, Somy Ali decided to call it quits and move her base to USA, wherein she started ‘No More Tears’, her NGO that relentlessly works for the victims of domestic violence and rape. Somy Ali, who is extremely active on social media, in her latest post revealed the reason and also the inspiration behind her starting the NGO
Somy Ali took to Instagram and shared a monochromatic photograph of her mother and wrote about how she has suffered unimaginable pain from all facets of life. She captioned the photograph stating, “I wish there was a No More Tears, when you were little.” A real survivor who has suffered unimaginable pain from all facets of life. It was all swept under the rug and in 2023, today the victims @nomoretearsusa rescues repeat the same story as my mother tells me about her plight. My mother is the reason for my giving birth to No More Tears. It was a chaotic upbringing to say the least, but we are all Survivors”.
Somy Ali also added, “This post is for every single person who cares about our mission and who believes victims. I want all our donors, our gala committee, our board of directors, and volunteers to know that without you there was no way we could or would have been able to save over 40,000 victims of trafficking and domestic violence. We appreciate you and thank you!”
