Cosmopolitan (India) - - COSMO INTERVIEW -

Does she ex­ude the same con­fi­dence when she opens the morn­ing pa­per, and finds a nasty new ru­mour about her? “It took me time to get used to it,” she says. “Ear­lier, I used to get very up­set. I didn’t know why peo­ple were writ­ing bad things about me. Then one day, Sal­man (Khan) told me that it’s bet­ter when peo­ple talk about you, than when they don’t talk about you, be­cause that’s what makes you pop­u­lar. It took some con­vinc­ing, but I think I’ve fi­nally got it now. The more you guard your­self, the more peo­ple will talk about you.”

What about love? Is that a closely-guarded topic, too? The an­swer comes in­stantly, like a well-re­hearsed speech. “It’s great for any­one to be in love. But a man has to be well-read, have a good sense of hu­mour, and smell good. Any­body who is pompous, who likes to boast, doesn’t stand a chance with me!”

Since Son­akshi is a cer­ti­fied fash­ion de­signer, I must know her take on the cur­rent fash­ion scene. “I feel it’s too crit­i­cal. Es­pe­cially to­wards peo­ple who’re in the lime­light.” And what about her own style? “It’s very ca­sual and sim­ple. I’m a very jeans and T-shirt kind of a per­son. Even when I dress up, I like keep­ing it sim­ple.”

I’m left with time for one last ques­tion...was it an ad­van­tage be­ing the only daugh­ter amongst three sib­lings? “Ab­so­lutely! Croc­o­dile tears; shed one and you get what you want.” Styling: Arad­hana Baruah; Hair & Make-up: Namrata Soni; Pro­duc­tion: Im­ran Kha­tri Pro­duc­tions

Sim­ple and jewel-toned is clearly Son­akshi’s

fash­ion for­mula
