Sonakshi has witnessed her own share of ups and downs in these nine glorious years and stood firm against all the hurdles. She has been subjected to many trolls who continuously shamed her for her weight. In a 2013 interview with Filmfare, Sonakshi had refused to talk about her weight issue, and had said, “I’ve decided I’m not going to talk about it. It’s simple. The more I talk about it, the more people ask. Frankly, it’s a non-issue to me. I don’t want to give it any importance.”

Well, Sonakshi has impressed millions of girls out there with her spectacular weight loss journey. Recently, she made an appearance on Arbaaz Khan’s chat show, Pinch with Arbaaz Khan, wherein, she opened up about her thoughts on body-shaming. The 31-year-old actress said, “Earlier, I used to read it and used to think how do people get themselves to say things like that because if you cannot say such things in front of someone how do you get the strength to say such things online. Koi aakar muje ye samne bole mai do mukke na de dun usko.” (Also Read: Shah Rukh Khan Asked 17-Year-Old Priyanka Chopra To Marry Him In Miss India, Her Reply Was Epic)

While candidly talking to Arbaaz, Sonakshi said, “When I did Dabangg (2010), you had seen me before that also and I was very very big, I was unhealthy, I was unfit and I lost 30 kgs to do your film and still people found words to say about me, about my shape, about how I looked.”

She further added, “Earlier, I used to go in the defensive space. I had put in so much effort, I have reduced so much, they have not seen the half of it. They have not seen the effort that has gone in, they have not seen the blood, sweat and tears that have gone in. And, still they are talking so, to hell with it, main jaisi hun vaisi rahungi, aapko dekhna hai aap dekho aap ko mat dekhna hai aap mat dekho.” (You May Also Like: Aditya Roy Kapur Says He Is Single, But Arjun Kapoor And Sonakshi Sinha Reveal The Truth)

In an interview with DNA, Sonakshi had talked about the lessons she had learned in Bollywood, and had shared, “I think it's very important not to take yourself seriously in a place like this where everybody is constantly judging you. The first thing they want to do is pinpoint your mistakes. Or praise you, for the heck of it, just to be in your good books, so it's very important not to take the good and the bad seriously.”

In the same interview, she had also talked about her dream career as a child, she had revealed, “I wanted to be everything but an actor. An astronaut, a tennis player, a bio technologist, all this nonsense without realising that my mathematics is so bad. The science college would look at me, and say 'Please go somewhere else.'”

She had further added, “Then I got into fashion designing. I sketched well so I said, 'Fine, why not try and hone this talent of mine' and I was really enjoying it and doing really well in college. I never really thought of it and I had put on so much of weight. I mean I was always a big child but during college, I put on even more weight. I used to eat Schezwan noodles for lunch every day without fail.” (Don't Miss: Karan Tacker Has Found Love Again In Dear Maya's Shreya Chaudhry After Breakup With Krystle D'souza?)
