It is said that an actor is always close to his/her immediate staff as they spend more time with them than anyone else does. It stands so true in our ‘Dabangg’ girl’s life, in fact the affable Sonakshi Sinha takes it one step further and actually treats her team as friends, and spends most of her free time in their company.
No matter which film set it is, or what photo shoot it is, whether in India or abroad - Sona is always surrounded by her jovial staff, whom she affectionately calls her #dreamteam. They all might be working for her, but for Sona they are nothing less than best friends who she just can’t do without. She crack jokes with them, asks for their advice, gossips with them, and despite being a ‘star’, prefers to have her food too with her beloved entourage.
Sonakshi who has been working round the clock since the time she stepped in the industry in 2010, and gave back to back hits like ‘Rowdy Rathore’, ‘Son Of Sardaar’, ‘Dabangg 2’, ‘R. Rajkumar’ etc, have bonded with her team so well in the past 4 years that they are almost like her family. She never forgets their birthdays and ensures to make their day special and memorable. “I think, the one reason I never get tired of my work is because I always have my friends around me, they keep me cheerful throughout any tiring day,” says the Chiquita pointing towards her team.
Let us introduce you to her awesome foursome…
She is the lady behind Sonakshi’s sexy looks. Sonakshi and Sakshi go back a long way, they were in the same design college studying fashion designing. While Sonakshi left her designing career to pursue films, she pulled in her college time buddy to be her personal stylist. Even when Sona has a day off she is spotted at Sakshi’s house, binging on food and reminiscing their college days. Sakshi not only helps her pick up that perfect outfit, but is also her close confidante.
He has been Sonakshi’s make-up artist since her first film. Despite several other renowned make -up artists in the Bollywood industry, Sona prefers to work only with her dear friend Nilesh. She calls him -“my source of non-stop entertainment.”
With three films in the pipeline – ‘Action Jackson’, ‘Lingaa’, and ‘Tevar’ – Sonakshi’s schedule has been hectic. Obviously, her team too had been equally busy. Recently, it was Nilesh’s birthday but owing to her busy schedule, he could not take the day off. However, Sonakshi did not let that dampen his spirits. The actor decided to throw a surprise party for him on the set itself. She ordered a special cake, which resembled a make-up kit for him and also arranged for her vanity van to be decorated with balloons to liven up the atmosphere.
She is the lady in charge. Divya not only schedules everything for Sonakshi, but also ensures about Sona’s comfort. If ever, Sona is wearing revealing clothes for a shoot, her ever efficient manager makes certain that there are limited number of people on the set and all the unwanted crowd is pushed out of the door. Divya is again an important part of all Sona’s parties and the girls often hang out together - be it the luncheons or the elaborate dinners, more than a manager Divya is sonakshi’s friend always advising her about things that she needs to do. Divya also ensures that Sona does not cheat on her diet. Sonakshi on Divya’s birthday tweeted – ‘Happy happy birthday @iamdivyabali... My soft looking but hard working manager!! Have a super day and even better year... Oh wait, that we shall together :D’
No one dare touches Sona’s long mane except her friend cum hairstylist – Sheetal Khan. Sona is extremely particular and possessive about her hairstylist Sheetal, who too have been with her since her first film. Like Nilesh, Sona ensures that for all her film projects, it is Sheetal who is appointed as her hair stylist.
Sonakshi does not even blink an eyelid when she says, “I don’t have many friends in this industry, but these are my people, they are my friends.”
Be it clicking selfies together or going on shopping sprees… Sona is seldom seen without her awesome foursome. Must say, her friendship with her staff is a remarkable one, and yes, very rare on this planet called - Bollywood. Keep it up Sona, you are truly a girl with a golden heart.
