Sonakshi Sinha is compared to veteran actress Reena Roy in style, looks and body type. Ironically, Reena Roy was the alleged girlfriend of Shatrughan Sinha at one point of time.
This made people questioning about Sonakshi Sinha and Reena Roy relationship. Shatrughan Sinha married actress Poonam Chandiramani on July 9, 1980. But his relationship with Reena Roy continued for a while even after his marriage.
Sonakshi Sinha’s Looks in Movie Himmatwala
When Sajid Khan chose Sonakshi Sinha for an item song in his movie HIMMATWALA (20013) and the song was based on retro theme, he wanted Sonakshi to look like Parveen Babi of movie SHAAN and Sridevi of movie CHAALBAAZ. However, Sonakshi Sinha, sporting vintage golden dress and headband in the song Thank God Its Friday of HIMMATWALA strikingly resembles Reena Roy’s look from popular disco song Disco Station from the 1982 movie HATHKADI, instead of looking like Parveen Babi.
Sonakshi Sinha was present with Sajid Khan at the launch of Himmatwala and when one of reporters asked Sonakshi about her looks and similarities with Reena Roy, Sajid Khan maintained that Sonakshi’s looks was inspired from Parveen Babi’s look in the song Pyaar karne waale … from movie SHAAN. We can see Sonakshi Sinha smiling on reporter’s question in the launch video instead of sharing her own version of answer.
Who Said What About the Similarity and Relationship
Sonakshi is touted as the next door sweet girl. Though Sonakshi is talked for her good work, she could not keep herself free from controversy.
Media drilled Sonakshi about her father’s relationship with Reena Roy but Sonakshi took the attack in right spirit, “I think it happened when I was not even born. I found out when I was growing up and started understanding things. But I’m not going to crucify my father for something he did years back. It is his past. So I don’t think too much about it”.
When Sonakshi Sinha was asked how she feels being compared to Reena Roy, she said that she has a striking resemblance to her mother Poonam Sinha and she has not any connection to Reena Roy. “I was a little upset then. But it really doesn’t matter now. Not that I don’t like her. Maybe my facial features are similar to hers. I had a fuller face and wear similar eye make-up. Maybe that is why we are compared to each other. I am sure I don’t look anything like her now,” Sonakshi was quoted as saying.
In an interview, Reena Roy also cleared the air by saying that Sonakshi looks like her mother Poonam Sinha. Reena finished the subject by saying, “When I did ZAKHMEE, I was called Asha Parekh and Nasir Hussain’s daughter. Film industry mein toh yeh silsila chalte rehta hai. Kuch din baad khatam ho jaata hai.”
This was from Reena Roy but what does Sonakshi Sinha’s mother has to say about the controversial resemblance? “Absolutely not! She doesn’t look like anyone. Sonakshi is my daughter and she looks like me,” says Poonam Sinha defensively. “Please don’t bring this topic with her,” advised Mrs. Sinha.
Sonakshi shares similarities with the actress who had once dated her father Shatrughan Sinha. “My relationship with Reena Roy was intense, pious and personal. After my marriage, people said that Reena’s feelings for me had changed. In fact, it grew more intense. I am grateful that she gave me her company for seven years,” Shatru had said about the affair, many years ago.
On different occasions, reporters have asked them about the Reena-Sonakshi resemblance but never had a reason to quiz if Sonakshi Sinha’s mother is Reena Roy or Poonam Sinha.
Name and fame come with sacrifices and this popular saying stands apt for Sonakshi. The ‘Dabangg’ girl occupied the gossip column for her personal life as well.
