Sonakshi Sinha was allotting seats to the audiences when Salman Khan discovered her and cast her for the super hit Bollywood film Dabangg which happened to be her debut movie. Sonakshi and rapper Badshah recently attended The Kapil Sharma Show on Sony Entertainment Television wherein they shared their funniest tales and deepest secrets along with Kapil who too was seen in his usual fun elements. The two visited the show to promote their upcoming comedy-drama Khandaani Shafakhana and while sharing insights from the movie, she also shared the story of how she got her role in the Salman Khan movie Dabangg.
Sonakshi Sinha, who has done films like Lootera, Ittefaq, Akira, and Rowdy Rathore in the past, revealed that acting was never on her list until Salman showed faith in her. The actress always had a heavy built and thus never thought of getting into acting. She was working as an audience manager in a fashion show when Salman discovered her. In conversation with Kapil, Sonakshi Sinha said, “I was at a fashion show working as an audience manager and Salman was sitting in the audience. He already knew that I was Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter and he came to me humbly and suggested me to lose weight as he looked forward to casting me in his movie.” She further shared her conversation with Salman by saying, “I was extremely elated and seeing me excited, he jokingly asked me to treat him to celebrate this news but I only had Rs. 3000 in my wallet. Yes! Imagine the star asking for a treat and I was having only Rs. 3000 that too what I earned from that fashion show.”
The actress went on add that, that was the day, when she dedicated herself to lose weight and now, needless to say, she has achieved it quite successfully. Further in the show, the Khandaani Shafakhana actress would be seen making revelations about her style icon in the industry which is Ranveer Singh and will also share that who in the industry she thinks is the fittest among all actors.
