"I was good at sketching (that"s part of my fashion designer training) but Salman taught me how to raise that art to a new level by introducing me to painting. Painting has a calming effect on me. For now I stick to forms and faces," the Times of India quoted Sonakshi as saying.
The beautiful said that she took up acting by accident but has fallen in love with it. “I never thought about getting into films though I did have an interest in modelling. Actually, Arbaaz and Salman saw me walk the ramp and approached me for their film. Now I"m hooked to films. I enjoy acting." Now, she is taking extra care in choosing films. “I know who I am going to be paired with next, but I can"t talk about it now. And if ever I am going to sign a film it should at least be as good as or better than Dabangg." She added.
Well, she is very lucky to have an actor like Salman to launch her. She has every possibility to become famous like Katrina Kaif, as they share the same mentor in Salman!
