hello,

I found this image on internet...and wondering how to make this lighting.
ceiling bounced top light which goes around the object
side light (strobe +honeycumb grid) to make shadow...

I am guessing you mean a sidelight with a strobe in a soft box or in an umbrella.

If I understand correctly you want to duplicate this image but with a soft shadow. If I'm not understanding what you want please disregard everything below.

If you don't want the sharp shadow you will need a much softer side light than in the image, perhaps something with a lot of falloff you can feather a lot.

What sort of equipment do you have available?

This shadow is just one soft box about twice it's diameter away from the subject and NO fill and NO feathering and it gives a softer shadow than what you demonstrated.

Or am I failing to understand the question?

but the difference is
I will not get sharp unnatural shadow
