Shahid Kapoor is said to be the reason why Sonakshi Sinha has moved from a joyfully plump actress to a much svelte and thinner looking actress.
Earlier, she just did not seem to care. “I am hired in films not for the way I look, but for my acting,” was her resort.
But her recent looks have stunned one and all.
The actress, after 'R... Rajkumar' has been insisting that certain projects starring her should have Shahid in it.
The choice of Shahid is so important, that she had even refused a film opposite her 'Lootera' star Ranveer Singh who was linked to her by the gossip columns.
Sonakshi did deny the rumours, but we are told that the Sinha family is not too keen on Ranveer Singh.
A film starring Luv Sinha and Sonakshi had Ranveer in the lead, but the Sinha family pushed the later out - looks like Ranveer don't even feature in the co-star list.
And then, if 'R Rajkumar' was the only other project where she did well in 2013 apart from other flops, it is but evident that she will opt for Shahid as her hero.
And, now we hear Shahid is the man responsible for the transmogrification of Sonakshi from Fat to Fit.
Shahid’s comment on her weight in the film 'R Rajkumar' seems to just be the tip of the iceberg.
But then when the promos were out, she exclaimed, “I have stopped reacting to comments about my weight and that is why I don’t mind the promos as well.”
But then it is after 'R Rajkumar' that she has seriously taken efforts to lose weight and has been giving credit to her hard work in dropping a few pounds and looking like a million dollars.
“I will attribute my weight loss to my hard work,” she says without giving credit to Shahid.
But then sources close to the actress mention that it is indeed Shahid who has motivated her to lose weight. “Shahid is very particular about his workouts and his discipline seems to have rubbed on to her.
She was impressed by his routine and decided to take the plunge,” says the source.
The chemistry between both these actors in Karan Johar’s show seems to indicate that there seems to be a lot more than is seen on the surface.
And now we know that Sonakshi chooses to pay her Shahid back by recommending him for films rather than giving him her thumb.
