Shatrughan Sinha's daughter made a totally rocking Bollywood debut opposite Salman Khan in 2010's biggest blockbuster 'Dabangg'. Sonakshi, who used to be overweight, was spotted by Salman at a wedding who told her that she must get in shape and became an actress. And that's just what she did, along the way sweeping all the Best Female Debutant of the Year awards.
Following the massive success of 'Dabangg', Sonakshi has also been signed on for 'Dabangg 2', Shirish Kunder's 'Joker' with Akshay Kumar; and Abbas Mastan's 'Race 2'.
The fact that she is currently hot property in T'town is also evident from her rapidly growing kitty of endorsements. She is the new brand ambassador for Dyna Soaps (once endorsed by Katrina Kaif) and also for Fem.
