Mumbai: Sonakshi Sinha might be just one film old but she is the undisputed Princess of Bollywood. Her aura and her charm have spread far and wide and her popularity has touched the Alaskan borders as well. The ‘Dabanng’ hottie, now has a new admirer overseas and it is none other than Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska.

The American politician and commentator, Palin was impressed with Sonakshi’s speech on stage at an event held recently in the Indian capital.

Talking to a daily, a source present at the event revealed, “Sarah seemed impressed by Sonakshi. Both ladies chatted about women empowerment and how it can change the world. Palin was also speaking on how it was high time that women should take the forefront in terms of making fundamental changes in the system, be it the political or in any other field.”

However, Palin who had not watched the young actress perform in her debut film, the politician was awestruck to learn that Sonakshi had a huge fan following so early in her career.

“Though Sarah admitted that she hadn’t watched her film, she was reportedly taken by surprise at the actress` popularity. Sonakshi too added that she wants to do her bit in creating awareness amongst the masses, especially with regards to education and women’s health-related issues,” added the source.

Moreover, Palin was also surprised to see the newbie’s inclination towards social responsibilities, especially the emancipation of women in the sub-continent.

Well…it seems that Sonakshi is following in the footsteps of her mentor Salman Khan, for whom philanthropy comes so naturally.

Great going girl… Keep it up!
