In 2014, Sonakshi Sinha announced the launch of her own production house with her brothers, Luv Sinha and Kussh Sinha. Back then, the Dabangg (2010) star had said, “I will support the company as an actor as well as a family member.” However, since then, no movie has been announced under the banner. The reason for the same, according to Sonakshi, is the lack of good scripts.
“Good scripts are rare in today’s world. And honestly, with three of us involved, it often happens that if one person likes something, the other two don’t,” she says, laughing. She adds, “We need to reach a consensus. But, it is also good to work with your siblings, as it’s easier to make a point without worrying about what the other person will think.”
Over the years, Sonakshi has also made a mark when it comes to her sense of fashion. While the actor is a fashion design graduate, she admits that during her initial years in the Hindi film industry, she never took enough care of herself. “The way I dress now is a result of a lot of inputs from a lot of people. In the last two years, I worked with some really good stylists,” says Sonakshi. She reveals that when she started working out and shedding the extra kilos, compliments started pouring in from all quarters. “I’ve needed help in that (style) department. And eventually, I started looking better and getting compliments… so, when you are praised for your style, it’s natural to want to do it (take care of oneself),” she adds.
The actor points out that her friend, stylist Sakshi Mehra, helped her a lot in this journey. “Sakshi stepped in and really changed my style around. So I started thinking like her. She knows what I like, what I would wear, etc. She no longer lives in Mumbai, but her assistant, Chinar Desai, has stayed on,” says Sonakshi, who adds that even though Chinar is young and new, she is doing a “great job”.
On the work front, Sonakshi is clear that she wants to do films that challenge her. “I’m just going to go with the flow. But I’m definitely not going back to doing four films a year. That is something that drains me. I only want to do films that push me,” she says.
