Nine years ago, Salman Khan introduced Sonakshi Sinha in Bollywood with his cop film 'Dabangg'. While his character Chulbul Pandey left the masses asking for more, the actress too left a mark as his romantic interest Rajjo. Sonakshi also starred in Dabangg 2 and is now all set to romance Salman once again in the third film in the franchise.
However, you folks would be surprised to know that Sonakshi was never a Salman Khan fan. The actress made this revelation in an interview with Mid-day.
