Sonakshi Sinha knows how to maintain old relationships, not letting her star status get in the way of her friendships. Recently, she bonded with an old buddy — a former classmate of hers from SNDT College — Sonam Modi. And after seeing her friend’s designs, she instantly decided to get her on board

to style her.
A source tells us, “Sonakshi’s stylist was at a store looking for clothes for the actor. The same store also retailed clothes by Sonam. When her stylist, who also happens to be a former classmate of Sonakshi’s and Sonam’s, realised who the designer of the garments she had chosen was, she instantly picked them up and told Sonakshi about it.”
The source tells us further that Sonakshi’s usual dressing is more Indian, and since that was Sonam’s forte as well, she thought it was best to sport designs made by her friend.
“Sonakshi really liked the clothes and even had a chat with her old classmate. Later, in addition to the already chosen clothes, Sonam was asked to give some more designs exclusively to Sonakshi, which she will be wearing during this week’s promotions of her next film, Son Of Sardaar,” the source adds.
