Actress, Sonakshi Sinha is the daughter of veteran actor, Shatrughan Sinha and Poonam Sinha. She surely resembles her mother a lot even when the world goes gossiping.

She had written, "Happy Mothers day to my first love, my first friend and my first role model! Missing you, cant wait to come back and trouble you, a whole months quota awaits you."

Taking to her IG handle, Sonakshi shared an inside picture from the birthday celebrations of her mom.

Sharing the celebration picture, Sonakshi wrote a cute birthday wish for her mother, which can be read as “Happy birthdayyyy to my cutie patoutie!! Its a big one haan” followed by red heart emoticon.
Sonakshi is her parents' favourite child and there is no doubt in that. In an interview with the Filmfare, Sonakshi had shared that her parents' had prayed for a daughter and that's the reason why they pamper her so much. She had said, "I told you I was always the pampered one. My mother (Poonam Sinha) tells me they prayed for a girl because they had two boys already. And when I was born, I got all the attention by default."
In an interview with ETimes, Sonakshi had talked about her bond with her mother on the occasion of Mother’s Day 2020. When asked what does Mother’s Day mean to her, Sonakshi had said, “One day isn’t enough to acknowledge your parents or shower affection on your mother, father or anyone who is integral to your being. I, on the other hand, take it as another opportunity to tell Mom how much I love her and show her my gratitude for how she has shaped me.” (Don't Miss: K.G.F.

Sonakshi had also revealed the three things her mother, Poonam Sinha has taught her to never to do in her life.

Lastly, never underestimate yourself, you can accomplish anything you set out to do.”
Sonakshi had also shared that she feels that her mother is her ‘safety blanket’ as she feels she can always depend on her without any questions asked or without being judged. In her words, “For me, my mother is the safety blanket I can resort to anytime without being judged or questioned, so what can top that? On this day, I like to honour her for all that she has given me, and celebrate her for all that she has achieved.” (Recommended Read: Amitabh Bachchan Shares Late Father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan's Advice That Ignites Him To Work Harder)
