Chirpy Sonam names the idols who have influenced her life and acting style apart from her papa, who"s her "mentor, philosopher and guide" and manages her contracts and deals:
Waheeda Rehman: Gorgeous dancer, stunning looker and a whammy performer, she really had the goods. Her snake dance in Guide is Sonam"s all-time favourite and she “envies" her for being Guru Dutt"s heroine.
Rekha: Her enduring “aura" and magnificent screen presence fascinates Sonam.
Sridevi: She"s impressed with Sri"s “sheer range" which is amply displayed in Sadma and Chaalbaaz.
Salman Khan: When her childhood star turned her hero, she knew that Lady Luck was beaming upon her. Sonam is awed by his “complete dedication" to cinema.
Shaan: Believe it or not, during her college days Sonam “simply worshipped" singer Shaan and doted on his Lovology album.
