She has always managed to create magic with numbers but “size zero” doesn’t seem to be her number. Sonakshi Sinha has always been quizzed about her size. Filmi events, award functions, promotions anywhere she goes a bag of questions about her figure always follows. Does she need to shed her Indian image and prove that she is more than a glam doll or will she continue living with this image through out her career?
All films that she has done have always portrayed her as a quintessential Indian women who is traditional or a small-town girl. Has this been a deliberate attempt to cover her modesty or does she have issues with glam avatars? In a recent interview she has mentioned that when she entered the industry she made it clear that she wouldn’t wear short clothes, no kissing scenes and NO BIKINIS. She further adds that she’d do films that she can comfortably sit and watch with her parents.
From her debut film “Dabangg” to her latest release “Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobara” she has always been a damsel in distress or a small town girl or what some may say “the typical Indian girl”. This conscious effort to stick to that image has gone up to such an extent that now even the directors can’t see her out of that image; but Sonakshi Sinha defends herself by telling that commercial films is her first love.
Well what is evident is that she is being stereotyped by picking only specific kinds of role. Her body and her weight issues have always ensured that she is in the limelight. While some think its high time she shed that extra flab she says she is comfortable in her body and that she believes she is blessed to have an Indian body. Well all we can say is that Sonakshi is born an actor and that she should experiment with her roles, looks and size to keep rocking it!
