Alot has been said about Sonakshi Sinha’s voluptuous frame. But the actress, unfazed by the hullabaloo, refuses to let it affect her.
Says Sonakshi, “Beyond a point you stop reacting to it. The audience has accepted me… that’s what matters. It’s not like people aren’t coming to me with films. Frankly, I have worked very hard to look the way I look today. I have lost a lot of weight. I still work hard on myself, my films, my skills and that’s paying off. So far, in all the roles that I have played, I am not required to be size zero. I am not a model, I am an actor. I am a regular 25-year-old, happy playing roles that let me be like that. Being fit is a part of this industry and I am quite fit. I don’t fall sick, collapse on the set and faint. I can work for long hours.”
On her desi avatar in all her films, including the upcoming Son Of Sardaar, Sonakshi says, “When girls roam around in mini skirts film after film, nobody asks them. So why should I be asked? Working in Indian films in my own country, speaking my own language, why should I be worried about being stereotyped?”
The role, she says, has made her do things she wouldn’t have done otherwise. “Unlike me, she (her character) is very talkative. I’d rather sit in a corner with a book. I have done action sequences, learnt to ride a bike, done wheelies and stoppies and kicked gundas. I enjoyed every bit of it.”

Sonakshi Sinha, who turns 25 tomorrow, says she is too busy with work to concentrate on romance
Hiren Kotwani (MID-DAY; June 1, 2012)
Sonakshi Sinha, who turns 25 tomorrow, is glad to have got the day off. More so since she has been working hard for the last eight-10 months, as she says. However, she’s not having a big bash, but a quiet celebration with her family and close friends.
Attributing it to being a low-key person, Sonakshi says, “Every year, I celebrate the day with family and close friends. This year will be the same, with a quiet dinner after I show them my second film.” Her new film opposite Akshay Kumar, Rowdy Rathore, opens in the cinemas today.
While her mother Punam has already watched the film, daddy Shatrughan hasn’t managed to catch it yet. And Sona feels that her mother is a more objective critic than her father. As she reveals, “Dad is cool; I’m the apple of his eyes.
Mom knows me in and out, and whatever she says is for my betterment.” If she has been missing from screen after her debut Dabangg (September 2010), Sonakshi more than makes it up with four releases this year, two with Akshay (Joker, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2) and one each with Ajay Devgn (Son Of Sardaar) and Salman Khan (Dabangg 2). “I’ve been working shooting for the five films, besides doing ads and shows. So I haven’t felt any gap as such,” she says, positive that her films will keep the audience entertained.
The actress wishes for lots of good work in the year ahead. “I want to More >
