"I'm a Daler Punjabi"- says Sonakshi Sinha

Sonakshi Sinha, known for her Dabangg title is trying to change the image of herself in the industry by trying every genre. She is seen in Happy Phir Bhag Jayegi playing the role of Happy along side, Jimmy Shergill, Diana Penty and Jassie Gill. She speaks about her experience with the film, "The film was in itself a comedy marathon, so it was obvious that on the sets too we will be having a lot of fun too. It was like a whole lot of Punjabi gang gathered in China.

My character is an amazing one where I'm playing the role of Harpreet who is forcefully brought into China and the whole film is a case of mistaken identity. So, they are considering me for the wrong Happy and the right Happy is played by Diana Penty. I wasn't a part of the film's first aprt, but, I'm already loving the journey." 

Sonakshi Sinha has transformed herself a long way from her debut Dabangg to her present self. She speaks for the girls who are a victim of body shaming and slams the haters saying, "You are beautiful just the way you are. No doubt everyone would say mean and hurtful things, it might be even your Mom but, it's your choice if you want to change your persona altogether or not. I was 95 in my school time and I had to reduce otherwise I wouldn't have looked good on screen. But, it comes to a personal choice, I wanted to change myself, so I did, if yiu are comfortable the way you are, then be like it. No one can stop you from being who you are. Anyways, in today's time, fitness and health is considered to be important too, so a lot of people do it for health reasons too." 

Sonakshi was too thrilled to be in Chandigarh. She was accompanied by the film's director, Mudassar Aziz and Jassie Gill. About her future plans, she spoke, "Well, I don't have any plans for marriage right now. Although, I do have a lot of work at my hand to be introduced only by the makers. Of Chandigarh, I have heard a lot of praise for the city, but can't visit the city attractions this time as I only want to sleep tight after all the promotional work. That's my main motive till now." 

Sonakshi Sinha is also all praises for the actor, "I am so enthralled to see the love and support his city is providing to Jassie on his debut. Jassie was a complete shy person during the start. But, then eventually he opened up and spread such positive energy on the sets. Well, everyone knows me for being a prankster, so I pulled one on Jassie too. During the shoot one day, I told Jassie that it's my birthday today even though my birthday is on 2nd June. Because I knew Jassie is so active on his snapchat, he was putting up stories all day long that it's Sona's birthday and all.

And then, I asked Jassie to not put so many posts about my birthday as I am a very private person but the real reason was that his fans were already pointing out that it's not my birthday at all. So, at last he asked me to be a part of his Snapchat video where he wishes me and I tell him finally, it's not my birthday at all! He was so shocked and we all had a good laugh, so it was fun shooting with all of them. Anyways, they all don't consider me a non-Punjabi. Jassie says that from the looks, my eating habits, my understanding of the culture and the language, I am a complete Punjabi by heart. A daler Punjabi, in fact."
