Dabangg girl, Sonakshi Sinha, 24, seems to have finally given up on her
ways. From claims about her replacing actor Katrina Kaif as the brand ambassador of a leading clothing brand, to pushing actor Zarine Khan at a party thrown by Salman Khan, and now supposedly angering actor Shahid Kapoor by spreading word that he wants to work with her, Sinha has been doing the rounds of the gossip mills for the last few months.
But on a visit to the Capital on Sunday, she was at her political best. “I’m a big bore so I’ve no clue how people come up with all these controversies involving me,” says Sinha, who walked for designer duo Shantanu-Nikhil at Delhi couture week. But one thing’s for certain, the mention of either of her fellow Salman protégés does not go down well with her.
“I don’t want to comment on her,” was her stern reply when quizzed about Katrina. Her reaction is similar to comparisons between her father Shatrughan Sinha’s stint as host of Ke Bani Crorepati (Bhojpuri) and Amitabh Bachchan, the original host of the Hindi version.
“There can be no comparison. Dad’s show is in an entirely different language,” she says. Talk about her upcoming projects, and her face lights up. “I’m excited about Joker with Akshay (Kumar). It’s a different film and not just because it will be in 3D,” she says.
As far as Dabanng 2 is concerned, she says: “I have no clue how the story will progress.” Sinha was excited talking about fashion too. So, does she want to pursue this passion professionally some day? “Acting is it for me,” she answers with a sheepish grin.
