Always desired to become an Astronaut: Sonakshi



The well known Bollywood lady Sonakshi Sinha, who debuted in blockbuster Dabangg with Salman Khan, stated that she was eager to be an astronaut and it was her destiny that created her switch from chic to the cinema.

The luminary who began her career as a costume designer told that “Being in fashion designing, I used to sketch well. I thought of becoming an artist also but eventually, I landed up becoming an actor,” she further revealed that “There were a lot of people from different walks of life who inspired me while making a career choice. I was always a courageous girl,”

The Dabangg lady from Bollywood shared in an interview that “To be honest, I wanted to be an astronaut. My math was so bad though that no institute would have given me admission. I love sports, I like to swim and play tennis so I also thought of becoming a swimmer once,”

Sonakshi told that how she came from the fashion industry to film industry and hit the screens, “Arbaaz (Khan) spotted me at one of the fashion shows and approached me for the movie Dabangg. Although I never wanted to be there, it was an offer I could not say no to,”

She always liked and followed the style icon, Rekha. She further added that “She has effortlessly kept her style quotient identical for many years. You can recognize Rekha Ji no matter where she is. She is a great style icon,”

She differentiated between the style and fashion and said the two are not similar or synonyms. “Style is something that is incorporated into you and a part of your personality, just like your attitude or way of talking. And every person has his or her own style.” She emphasized.

Her famous dialogue is still used and appreciated by fans, “Thapar se darr nahi lagta sahib, pyaar se lagta hai” which is from the movie Dabangg. She said, “I had never thought a heroine can get famous for her dialogue, but my father’s expertise has clearly rubbed off on me,” she is currently busy in shooting for her imminent movies Akira and Force 2.
