Sonakshi Sinha received rave reviews for her act as the village belle Rajjo in 'Dabangg', but the actress had to go through the grind to lose weight and get that svelte figure. Sonakshi was an obese fashion design student, when Salman Khan spotted her at Amrita Arora's wedding and asked his brother Arbaaz to cast Sonakshi opposite him in 'Dabangg'. Sonakshi thought she was being fooled when the film offer came her way, but Salman insisted that she would be perfect for the film but she would have to lose all her fat. Sonakshi lost more than 40 kilos to get in shape for the film. But what we like the most about Sonakshi is that instead of going the size zero route, she just shed off the unhealthy flab and kept her curves.
