When she entered the film world,
brought curves back and was known for her girl-next-door look. But now, after having lost oodles of weight, the young star seems like a new person.
In this interview, Sonakshi talks about her new look, style statement and the rumours of a link-up with Shahid Kapoor.
How are you dealing with the link-up rumours between you and Shahid?
I’m not dealing with them. I sit at home, read what’s written and then forget it. Frankly, people should stop making it awkward because there’s nothing to it.
But you’ve been working out with his trainer...
So? I’ve been working out with him since November. What has that got to do with him? It’s not like the trainer is bound to Shahid. I can workout with whoever I want to.
Tell us about your new look.
I’ve been under pressure for a while. People have been writing about my weight. But it never really bothered me earlier because it didn’t come from within. I’m doing it now (losing weight) for myself. I’ve been consistently working out since November. You can see the results now. That’s is why everyone thinks I’m suddenly looking different.
Even at events you’ve started experimenting with fashion.
My stylist, who is also my friend, studied fashion designing with me. I was the one topping all the classes while she was the naughtier one. But frankly, she’s the best stylist I have worked with. She understands my style and body type. Because of our friendship, she puts in the extra effort. Plus, now that I have lost weight, I have many more options. What didn’t look nice on me earlier looks good now because of my changed body.
