Praying for Sonali's good health, Omung said, "I miss her a lot, but I know she is a fighter, she will come back for sure. I think she is going to come back before the finale. Get well soon, Sonali."
Omung, who judged a few episodes of the show with Sonali, said that her presence on the set used to create a beautiful atmosphere.
"Sonali is a mother figure. She is a calm and composed person, so while judging the show, she knew better than me and Vivek about how to deal with the kids.
"She and I used to discuss our issues on the set. We had a lot of fun. As a judge, as she is a mother herself, she knew the best when to behave strictly with the kids and when to have fun," added the Mary Kom director.
