Sonakshi is pregnant, says Salman Khan

Yes, you hear it right that Sonakshi Sinha daughter of veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha and Poonam Sinha is pregnant but before you draw any wrong conclusion, let me clear you that she is expecting a child only in reel and not in real.

Sonakshi is playing a pregnant woman in the upcoming film, ‘Dabangg 2’. Taking forward the original script where she was married to Chulbul Pandey now in the sequel she will be seen happily married to Salman and is three to four months pregnant.

Salman Khan reasoned why she has gained some weight for the movie. "When she entered the film industry, we all knew she was very talented. What she had to do was to lose her weight, which she did before joining the film industry. Of late, there were reports that she had put on little bit of weight again, but that was for Dabangg 2 as she plays a pregnant woman in the film," said Salman.

"She could not look like a model, she had to look like a (regular) housewife. So she had to look three to four months pregnant," he added.

Arbaaz Khan is directing his brother Salman Khan in ‘Dabangg 2’ and the actor described his experience on working with Arbaaz, "Arbaaz has been an assistant director, so he has been on the sets and he knows everything. So it was not like a new guy directing a movie," Salman said here.

Salman Khan says they share a good professional relationship.

"The comfort between me and Arbaaz is great. We used to help each other out. As a storyteller, he is fantastic. Arbaaz is a very sensible guy," added Salman, who will be seen as Chulbul Pandey in Dabangg 2, releasing on Friday.

‘Dabangg 2’ is slated to release tomorrow worldwide. The film is a sequel to 2010 blockbuster ‘Dabangg’ directed by Abhinav Kashyap.
