Recently, we had reported that Sonakshi Sinha is set to go to Nepal on May 14 to raise funds for those who were affected by a major earthquake last year. She will perform at an event that will be organised by the Nepal Army Wives Association. Now, we have been informed that the Bollywood actor, who enjoys painting in her free time, has auctioned her artwork to raise money for breast cancer patients.

A source close to Sonakshi reveals, “The auction took place on May 8. This is the first time that Sonakshi has presented her artwork at a public event. She only chose to do so because it was for a good cause.”

When contacted, Sonakshi confirmed the news, and said, “I have been painting for a while now, and I am still attached to them (her artwork). I had been contemplating what I should do next [with the paintings] for a while now. So, when I was asked to donate something for a cause like breast cancer, I thought, ‘Why not my painting?’ It feels great when you can use your talent to make a difference. I feel like my art has found its purpose.”
