It was only Salman Khan who inspired Sonakshi Sinha to be an actress. Post Dabangg there were reports that Sonakshi is moving out of the Salman Khan camp to be friends with Shahrukh Khan. But in a recent interview to DNA, Sonakshi revealed that she respects Salman Khan a lot and can never forget what he has done for her.
Sonakshi said, “Firstly, after Dabangg released it took me two months to really accept the fact that the film had reached such massive levels and that audiences loved me. Post that, both of us were busy with our respective projects, but whenever we met at events or functions we were as comfortable with each other as we were during the shooting of the film. Rumours of a problem between us amuses us no end, as many a times when they’re busy making us fight, we’re actually having fun shooting for the film. I have immense respect for Salman. He is the best. Why would we have any problems with each other?”
Sonakshi also praised Salman Khan and said, “Salman and Arbaaz (Khan) saw me at a college fashion show, and asked me to be Rajjo in their film. I hesitated at first as I wasn't sure. But when an actor like Salman Khan feels that you have what it takes to be an actor, you can’t not believe him. When I was convinced and ready for the role, he mentored me through not just acting, but also my gymming and well being (sic)."
No doubt Sonakshi, Salman Khan is the best. We agree to the hilt!
