Sonakshi Sinha said the rumors of Shirish Kunder asking her to reduce weight for an item song in Akshay Kumar’s movie ‘Joker’ were ridiculous.
“Such reports come out without checking with Shirish or me. It’s in bad taste because you (media) are being personal and ridiculous. If it were true, I wouldn’t have five films lined up. Yes, Shirish has asked me to do a song. And I think it is time to prove that curvy can also be beautiful as well”, said the actress
The actress who weighed 90 kgs before, reduced 30 kilos for the movie ‘Dabangg’.
“I work hard to maintain myself and always try to look better. But I don’t believe in going to an extreme or being stick-thin”, she said.
“Also if I have been accepted for the way I look, why would I do anything to change it? There is pressure from a lot of people, but that’s not what my audience wants. I’m happy with the way I look,” she added.
The actress features in the item song in a heavy sari, dancing and teasing Akshay at a wedding. According to sources the song required a lot of complex expressions which Sonakshi did deliver.
The actress also added that she was pleasantly surprised when ace choreographer Saroj Khan was impressed with her dancing in a classical song for the movie ‘Rowdy Rathod’ and gave her Rs.101 as shagun.
Besides Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Rowdy Rathod’, the actress also has Abbas-Mustan ‘Race 2’, Shirish Kunder’s 'Kick' along with Salman Khan and 'SOS - Son of Sardar' with Ajay Devgn.
“I immediately agreed to do SOS; it is a great story with action and comedy. I was waiting for such a script to come across,” concluded the actress.
