Actor Sonakshi Sinha says she didn’t become a part of her mother Poonam Sinha’s rally as a celebrity, but as a daughter. Earlier this month, Sonakshi held a road show for Poonam who is contesting the Lucknow Lok Sabha seat as a Samajwadi Party candidate. Sonakshi was accompanied by her brother Kushh Sinha as they campaigned for their mother.

“I was very happy to be in Lucknow with my mother and was overwhelmed with the turnout and support that we saw at our rally,” Sonakshi said in a statement, adding, “I wasn’t there as a celebrity but in the capacity of a daughter to support her mother.”

Addressing the supporters Sonakshi had said at the really, “I am happy to be here. I appeal to you all to vote for my mother. She will live up to your expectations.” Poonam Sinha thanked the people for joining the road show in large numbers. “I thank my party for fielding me from Lucknow. I appeal to the people of Lucknow to vote for me,” she said.

On the film front, the actress is busy with several projects. She will be seen playing an astrophysicist in Mission Mangal, a small town girl in Mrigdeep Lamba’s untitled comedy, an outspoken social worker in Bhuj: The Pride of India and reprising her role of Rajjo in Dabangg 3.
