Sonakshi's father and BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha won the recent Lok Sabha elections. Sonakshi’s father and BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha won the recent Lok Sabha elections.

Actress Sonakshi Sinha is happy that the BJP-led coalition has come to power at the Centre and is optimistic that it will bring in good times for the nation.

Sonakshi’s father and BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha won the recent Lok Sabha elections from Patna Sahib.

“We are very happy that BJP is back in power. And the changes that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already brought in the government, the way he has got the youth enthusiastic … It is fantastic. I think it is a sign of good days to come,” Sonakshi told PTI.

Sonakshi is happy that there are seven women Cabinet ministers in the Modi government.

However, she refused to talk about the controversy over HRD minister Smriti Irani’s educational qualification.

The actress revealed that films and politics were rarely discussed at their home.

“Though people might expect us to discuss politics and films at home, but we don’t discuss it. We have general conversation not related to our profession. Like we talk what we did throughout the day and whom we met, etc,” she said.

Shatrughan and Poonam Sinha’s daughter Sonakshi, the youngest of their three children, has always been the apple of her father’s eye.

“I am the most pampered one at home because I am the youngest and second, because I am a girl. Girls are always closer to their father than boys. He is the best father. He is away for work most of the time, he keeps shuttling between Mumbai, Delhi and Patna but he has always made an effort to make us feel that he is always around,” Sonakshi said.

Few days back, Shatrughan, who underwent a bypass surgery last year, had a routine check up at a hospital here.

“He is absolutely fine. He went for regular check up. He has to go for it every three-four months. So he just went for it and people just exaggerated,” she added.

    Congress always for all but BJP always talks and works for Hindu’s only, Modi is guilty of ordering the Destruction of Crucial doents including Wireless Intercepted Messages, Vehicle logs, Police Control Room records and others on 30.3.2008, four days after the Supreme Court appoints the Special Investigation Team (SIT) on 26.3.2008. He has headed the Home ministry portfolio since that date.

      Congress always for all but BJP always talks and works for Hindu’s only, Modi should have faith in Indian secular consution, and in the National Flag. It is the PM who unfurls the Tri color from Lal Qila on Independence Day. It may be noted that before unfurling Tricolor he has to visit Raj Ghat to pay homage to Rashtra Pita. Homage should be from core of heart. And only congress will follow this culture.

            Tell your Papa to reduce the size of his ego. And also it is better for everybody if he learns to talk a little less.

                  Sonakshi is absolutely right! Also she is one of the most talented and beautiful actress in Bollywood far better than Kareena and Katrina.

                    This para set me thinking:“Though people might expect us to discuss politics and films at home, but we don’t discuss it. We have general conversation not related to our profession. Like we talk what we did throughout the day and whom we met, etc,” Sonakshi Sinha said.There is something contradictory here. When you are a movie star you meet mostly filmi people and what you do throughout the day concerns 'Films", and you talk nothing but films. Ven Sardi
