Salman is the best: Sonakshi Sinha

Actress Sonakshi Sinha minces no words in dismissing rumours of a fight with her mentor, or revealing her plans to design a collection.

Salman is the best: Sonakshi Sinha

Sonakshi Sinha is just one film old, but the lass is already working with some of the big names in the film industry. Having made her debut in the industry with Salman Khan in 'Dabangg', Sona believes that she wouldn't have got a better start in her career, thus negating rumours of trouble in paradise with her mentor.

"Salman and Arbaaz (Khan) saw me at a college fashion show, and asked me to be Rajjo in their film. I hesitated at first as I wasn't sure. But when an actor like Salman Khan feels that you have what it takes to be an actor, you can't not believe him. When I was convinced and ready for the role, he mentored me through not just acting, but also my gymming and well being."

So what about all those stories of tension between the two on the sets of 'Dabangg 2'? "Firstly, after 'Dabangg' released it took me two months to really accept the fact that the film had reached such massive levels and that audiences loved me. Post that, both of us were busy with our respective projects, but whenever we met at events or functions we were as comfortable with each other as we were during the shooting of the film. Rumours of a problem between us amuses us no end, as many a times when they're busy making us fight, we're actually having fun shooting for the film. I have immense respect for Salman. He is the best. Why would we have any problems with each other?" retorts Sona.

The actress, however, does reveal her plans to keep the fashion designer in her alive. "Acting was never part of the plan. I was very keen on fashion designing, but destiny had other plans for me. I plan to do something in fashion when I get some time off from acting. May be start an affordable line for Indian bodies, who ain't really size zero kinds. Lots of times, I've seen young girls find it difficult to get their size clothes. I'll also ensure that the designs are more suited to our climate. I keep in mind all these factors even while endorsing a brand. As they say, you can take a person out of fashion, but not the style sense out of the person," smiles Sona.
