Actress Sonakshi Sinha says her goal is to consistently push her limits to be the best version of herself. “My goal is to consistently push my limits to be the best version of myself everyday. I have never been (like) this before. Now that I’m here, I only want to get better and better,” Sonakshi said in a statement to IANS. “I work towards breaking the patterns of my body and challenging it’s awareness with everything I do -- from my diet to my exercise routine. At the end of the day, it is hard work and dedication that pays off because in the long term, there are no shortcuts,” she added.

Sonakshi and her Kalank co-star Varun Dhawan keep posting their fitness story on Instagram. They use the medium to post clips from their work out session. Sonakshi Sinha, who has often been body-shamed, says it is important for the audience to rise above looks and delve deeper into an artiste’s work.Sonakshi is all for the fact that one’s work speaks for itself. The actress told IANS: “We should tell the audience and honestly that is something I have advocated since the starting of my career.” “I have always been projecting a very strong body image. Being true to yourself... I have been bodyshamed quite a bit but moving ahead of that because that is what I have always believed in...That it’s not how you look but how you do and about how many people you reach out to,”  she added.

While the media in Mumbai waited for a conversation with the actress, who had flown in from Kuala Lumpur to be a part of the event, there was chatter about Sonakshi’s weight loss and “sculpted body”.Don’t such comments and questions on weight annoy her? “I have been answering questions on my weight loss for so long that I have become indifferent to them. There are certain things that seem odd at the moment, but I am kind of used to it,” said Sonakshi with a smile.

“And it’s okay, it’s part of my profession. These are very basic things that people are interested in, which is why they ask. They are I guess, the most obvious questions,” added the actress, who will next be seen in Happy Phirr Bhaag Jaayegi, Kalank and Dabangg 3. There are also talks about Sonakshi Sinha featuring in Hindi remake of ‘Aapla Manus’, which was headlined by Nana Patekar. The actress will next be seen in Happy Phir Bhaag Jayegi, a sequel to Happy Bhag Jayegi. Made under the banner of Eros International and Aanand L Rai’s Colour Yellow Productions, the film is set to release on August 24.
