In Bihar to support her dad for the upcoming elections,Sonakshi Sinha admits there’s little she’ll do without his approval

She seems omnipresent these days. Last seen at a fashion show by SNDT and Shopper’s Stop in Mumbai,Sonakshi Sinha is currently in Patna to lend support to her father,BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha,on his election campaign trails.

“It’s rather hot,” complains the model as she goes on to talk about her visit. “I lack interest in politics and so I keep my distance from it. But right now we—my mom,brother and I—are here to help dad out for the elections.”

When Sinha first walked the ramp last year during Lakme Fashion Week,she managed to raise quite a few eyebrows—the daughter of a party leader from the saffron brigade,the fashion circuit was rather surprised.

The 23-year-old admits that her father has been supportive but also clarifies that she’d “never do anything he wouldn’t approve of”. “Dad has always given us the freedom to make our choices. He was supportive when I did my fashion designing course from SNDT college and later my decision to model. But our upbringing is such that I won’t ever go against family traditions to wear very skimpy outfits that would embarrass my father,” she adds.

The natural progression for Sinha,as is with all star kids,is an acting career in Bollywood though she insists it’s not what she ever meant to do. Her father has always kept them away from the world of films and politics as he’s “never brought work back home” and they hardly ever crossed paths with the stars or their kids.

But soon after the recent edition of Lakme Fashion Week,where Sinha walked the runway for Pria Kataria Puri,the grapevine was abuzz with talk of Arbaaz Khan having signed her on opposite Salman Khan in a film under his production house. Though Arbaaz has been announcing the same to the world,Sinha insists that their talks are only in the nascent stages.

“I’m indeed excited about it but I haven’t even read the script yet and neither has dad who’ll take the final call on my debut movie,” she says,adding,“But a few years ago when I met Salman,he told me I should lose some weight and focus on a career in acting. He promised me that when I’m ready,he’ll sign me on. I think it’s his promise that’s materialising now.”
