Mumbai: Bollywood stars making an appearance on the small screen is the new “in thing”. And how can Sonakshi Sinha, the latest flavour of Tinsel Town not follow the ongoing trend!
The stunning ‘Dabangg’ sensation is all set to grace the Idiot Box by taking part in the Bhojpuri version of the popular game show ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’, hosted by none other than her father Shatrughan Sinha.
Confirming the news to a tabloid, Shotgun said, "Yes. Sonakshi is going to be on the hot seat. Audiences will finally get to see us together on screen."
However, the veteran star with one of the most powerful voices has told Sonakshi that she will not be treated like a star guest but as a contestant.
"Sonakshi should not expect any easy questions just because she`s my daughter. You`ll be surprised to know she took the initiative of being on my show. She asked me if she could participate. I happily agreed. She`s an intelligent girl. I know she`ll conduct herself well," added Sinha.
The Bihari babu also revealed that he might also have his on and off friend Amitabh Bachchan on his show. Sonakshi’s mentor Salman Khan could also participate in the contest.
Talking about Big B, Sinha said, "Having him on my show makes perfect sense. I`ll invite him personally. I am sure he will agree. The differences between us is a thing of the past."
An all excited junior shotgun said, "It will be great! I love the show. Although I don`t speak Bhojpuri I can understand it. It would fun to be quizzed by dad."
