Mumbai: Shatrughan Sinha`s daughter Sonakshi, who enters Bollywood with `Dabangg`, can`t stop praising co-star Salman Khan and his brothers. The debutante has signed on with producer Arbaaz Khan for her second film too.
"Yes I am doing another film for Arbaaz Khan. But we haven`t decided on the subject and other details. All I know is, that`s the only film I`ve said yes to. Otherwise I`ll wait for `Dabangg` to be released before signing anything," Sonakshi said.
Salman is taking a keen interest in the newcomer`s career and has reportedly advised her not to sign any more films until her first film is released. This could be the reason why Sonakshi has turned down lucrative offers from several big banners.
The trailers of "Dabangg" went on air this week. And Sonakshi immediately made an impact on many minds, including Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who wants to offer her a role. But Salman, who has earlier introduced actresses like Bhumika Chawla ("Tere Naam") and Zarine Khan ("Veer"), has already blocked Sonakshi`s dates.
Sonakshi is all praise for the way Salman treated her during the shoot. "Why only Salman? Arbaaz and Sohail also looked after me like a family member. I`ve been so spoilt by them that I don`t know how I`ll work with other banners where I`d just have to be very professional in my dealings."
Was she ever intimidated by Salman?
"Not at all," Sonakshi laughed. "He`s a really chilled-out guy. If I didn`t have Salman and his brothers to look after me in my first film I don`t know how I`d have gathered the confidence to take the plunge into acting," Sonakshi said.
She stressed that she will only do films and roles that make her comfortable. "That is one thing I`m sure of. I won`t do anything that would embarrass me or my parents."
