She lost 30 kilos for her role in Dabangg opposite Salman Khan. Now debutante Sonakshi Sinha says that the superstar made sure she maintained her figure by sweating it out everyday.
“It was tough losing those 30 kgs. I worked out and also followed a strict diet. Salman helped a lot, he made sure that I went to the gym everyday after the shoot,” reveals Sonakshi.
Dabangg is due on September 10 and Sonakshi, daughter of Shatrughan and Poonam Sinha, is focusing on the release as she has not signed any other project yet. The 23-year-old actress says she is very choosy about films."I am taking it slow and not signing every film coming my way. I am very choosy about films and I want to do some good work. I am not signing anything till Dabangg releases. It’s a conscious decision. I am meeting a lot of people, but I will decide only after the film releases," Sonakshi says.
This is her first turn as an actress in Bollywood and Sonakshi already has her do’s and don’ts in place. The dusky beauty says she is not open to the idea of doing an item number. “I am a very shy person, I cannot be so bold,” said Sonakshi. But the actress was all praise for Malaika Arora Khan for her moves in Dabangg’s raunchy item number, Munni Badnam.
“I don’t think I could have done Munni Badnam. Malaika is fabulous at what she does. I am happy with what I am doing,” said the actress.
The Abhinav Kashyap directed film has Sonakshi playing a rustic small town girl from UP.
