New Delhi: Very few people are aware about the fact that Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha once aspired to become a fashion designer. Surprised? Yes, it's true. 

Sona reportedly started her career as a costume designer. She spilled the beans on fashion designer Pria Kataaria Puri's show 'Born Stylish'.

Sonakshi was quoted as saying that she wanted to be an astronaut. She said, 'To be honest, I wanted to be an astronaut, my math was so bad though that no institute would have given me admission. I love sports, I like to swim and play tennis so I also thought of becoming a swimmer once.

The daughter of Bollywood actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha forayed into the Hindi film industry with Salman Khan-starrer “Dabangg” in 2010. 

Bollywood's 'Shotgun Junior' shared her sentiments in an interview on Colors Infinity's show "Born Stylish" with host and designer Pria Kataaria Puri.

The actress, who is busy shooting for her upcoming films “Akira” and “Force 2”, says she “never thought a heroine can get famous for her dialogue”. 

She also added, “For me, the switch from fashion to cinema was all destiny. Arbaaz (Khan) spotted me at one of the fashion shows and approached me for the movie 'Dabangg', though I never wanted to be there, it was an offer I could not say no to. I had never thought a heroine can get famous for her dialogue; my father’s expertise has clearly rubbed-off on me”.
