Sonakshi Sinha: Joined mother's rally as a daughter
Sonakshi Sinha says she didn't become a part of her mother Poonam Sinha's rally as a celebrity, but as a daughter.
Earlier this month, Sonakshi held a road show for Poonam who is contesting the Lucknow Lok Sabha seat as a Samajwadi Party candidate. Sonakshi was accompanied by her brother Kushh Sinha as they campaigned for their mother. "I was very happy to be in Lucknow with my mother and was overwhelmed with the turnout and support that we saw at our rally," Sonakshi said in a statement. "I wasn't there as a celebrity but in the capacity of a daughter to support her mother," she added.
It may be noted that Sonakshi had steered clear of canvassing for father Shatrughan Sinha during his electoral stints in 2009 and 2014 from Patna Sahib in Bihar, maintaining that she wanted to stay away from politics.
But this time around, the actor has done a rethink and decided to take the plunge for mommy dearest.On the film front, Sonakshi Sinha is busy with several projects. She will be seen playing an astrophysicist in Mission Mangal, a small town girl in Mrigdeep Lamba's untitled comedy, an outspoken social worker in Bhuj: The Pride of India and reprising her role of Rajjo in Dabangg 3.
