BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Bollywood’s very own Dabangg girl, Sonakshi Sinha has become an industry-favourite with her unapologetic straightforwardness and honesty. From being a star kid to having paved her own path to success with major blockbusters, she sure has come a long way. And we all knew she had a protective childhood. But then, Sonakshi says it was important it was for her to be independent. “I always compared myself to my father (Shatrughan Sinha). When he came from Patna, he had struggled a lot. I am not even half percent there. Stories of how he bought his first house, which is still there, inspired me to also buy a house of my own. Not for anything else, I am very happy living with my parents, but because I want to do this on my own. I think every woman should have one dream of hers towards which she works leaving everything aside,” said the Khandaani Shafakhana actor, who was chatting with Kareena Kapoor Khan on 104.8 Ishq’s What Women Want 2.
With both the leading ladies hailing from a family with a Bollywood background, Kareena dives deep into the essence of being independent while living a stardom life in the public eye. “Parents would always want their kids to be safe. But I always found it very weird. Why is there someone always accompanying me wherever I am going. When dad had become the minister, I was probably in the Class VI or Class VII, suddenly there was heavy security, and men with guns started travelling with us. I still remember, I would go to school and a jeep filled with security guards’ carrying guns followed. The entire school was wondering what was happening. I felt so terrible that I told my mom that I wouldn’t go till you don’t stop this,” said Sonakshi, who will next be seen in Bhuj: The Pride Of India.
Few days back, Shatrughan Sinha was in news when he was spotted attending a wedding in Pakistan.
