Rumors of a rift between Sonakshi Sinha and her ‘Dabangg’ co-star Salman Khan have been rife for quite sometime now.
But the actress recently rubbished the rumors and said that all was well between her and Salman Khan.
“Firstly, after ‘Dabangg’ released it took me two months to really accept the fact that the film had reached such massive levels and that audiences loved me. Post that, both of us were busy with our respective projects, but whenever we met at events or functions we were as comfortable with each other as we were during the shooting of the film. Rumors of a problem between us amuses us no end, as many a times when they’re busy making us fight, we’re actually having fun shooting for the film. I have immense respect for Salman. He is the best. Why would we have any problems with each other?” she retorted.
The actress said that it was thanks to Salman Khan that she was an actress today.
“Salman and Arbaaz (Khan) saw me at a college fashion show, and asked me to be Rajjo in their film. I hesitated at first as I wasn't sure. But when an actor like Salman Khan feels that you have what it takes to be an actor, you can’t not believe him. When I was convinced and ready for the role, he mentored me through not just acting, but also my gymming and well being,” she said.
The actress had aspired to become a fashion designer before entering Bollywood. The actress said that though she will stick to acting, she still will keep her fashion designer dream alive.
“Acting was never part of the plan. I was very keen on fashion designing, but destiny had other plans for me. I plan to do something in fashion when I get some time off from acting. May be starting an affordable line for Indian bodies, who ain’t really size zero kinds. Lots of times, I’ve seen young girls find it difficult to get their size clothes. I’ll also ensure that the designs are more suited to our climate. I keep in mind all these factors even while endorsing a brand. As they say, you can take a person out of fashion, but not the style sense out of the person,” she said.
Though the actress is just one movie old, she has established herself in the industry and has few big movies like ‘Rowdy Rathore’, ‘Joker’ and ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2’ with Akshay Kumar, ‘Dabangg 2’ with Salman Khan ‘Son of Sardar’ with Ajay Devgn and ‘Lootera’ with Ranveer Singh in her kitty.
Sonakshi Sinha's next release will be 'Rowdy Rathore' directed by Prabhu Deva.
