Sonakshi Finally Says Yes To Salman’s FilmJune 13th, 2009 - 11:08 am ICT by Sampurn Wire

Will she, won’t she? Shatrughan and Punam Sinha’s daughter Sonakshi was offered a role by Salman in a film to be produced by Arbaaz Khan.
But Sonakshi, apparently in two minds about a film career, decided not to do it. She had studied fashion designing and that’s what she wanted to pursue as a career.
The girl hadn’t bargained for Salman’s persuasive powers. Apparently he kept asking Sonakshi and her parents (who are very fond of Salman) until they finally relented.
And now Sonakshi has finally said yes to the untitled film which begins shooting in a couple of months.
Says a source very close to the project, “Salman saw Sonakshi at the Fashion Week and told her to lose 10 kgs. Sonakshi decided to lose 30 kgs. And not by starving herself. She maintained a balanced diet, went to the gym regularly and embarked into water sports. Within no time she was stunningly slim.”
That’s when Salman got doubly persuasive and that’s when Sonakshi relented.
The film will be directed for Arbaaz Khan Productions by Anurag’s brother Abhinav Kashyap. This would be Arbaaz’s first production.
Apparently the director went to Arbaaz to sign him an as an actor. Arbaaz offered to produce it.
Says the proud father Shatrughan Sinha, “Acting was never on the cards for Sonakshi. But I remember as a child she was very cute and I had promised she would do an ad. This is perhaps a fulfillment of that promise. As long as she doesn’t compromise the dignity of our family I’ve no objections to her doing films.”
