While he is a celebrated actor, Shatrughan Sinha is also a noted politician. In fact, his daughter Sonakshi Sinha says she often discusses politics with him. “Whatever knowledge of politics I have comes from him. He is so involved in this field. I get first-hand information from him. I often ask him why certain things are happening [in the country],” she says.
Sonakshi is also known to voice her opinions about subjects close to her heart. However, as a result, she has been targeted by trolls time and again. “I ignore most of the comments. I shut out the negativity because I receive more love than hatred. I would have been worried if it was the opposite,” she says.
Body-shaming is one topic Sonakshi has been speaking out against actively. “I will always advocate a healthy body image no matter what. I’m not the one to be affected by what people have been saying about me or my structure. I’ve always done things on my own terms. I’m a very fit person. I know my job and I do it well. That is what matters to me,” says the actor.
Besides acting, Sonakshi has also explored singing and painting. She says she can’t do just “one thing at a time”. “I’m a jack of all trades and a master of some (laughs). I’m a multitasker. I need to be able to do a lot of different things. I used to sketch, and then I started painting. Singing has always been a hobby. I used to dance as well. I’m pretty occupied for now,” she adds.
