Two icons. One is an ex superstar who still makes the nation go dhak dhak when she flashes her megawatt smile. Another has the potential to go places by batting her ‘mast mast nain’. But she must shed another 10 kilos first. Yes, we are referring to Madhuri Dixit and Sonakshi Sinha. Two actresses who despite the huge age gap between them appear to have a lot in common. At least that’s what they projected on Karan Johar’s show. Madhuri is as politically correct as ever, so you are not going to get even a single masaledaar quote out of her. Sonakshi appeared to be influenced by Madhuri and seemed to be quite in awe of the actress. But she made up for her boring responses by coming up with some witty answers in the rapid fire around. When asked as to what was the worst pick-up line that came her way, she replied that no one tried picking her up coz she had a ‘shot gun’ at home. For the uninitiated Shot gun is her dad Shatrughan Sinha’s nickname. That was when Karan retorted rather wickedly that she was also too heavy to be picked. But to be fair to the actress, she is pretty sporting when it comes to jokes about her weight. She insists she has lost 30 kilos. But why does Sonakshi feel the need to drape herself in sarees? It makes her look much older than her 24 years. And if she is planning to compete with the likes of Katrina and Priyanka, she not only needs to shed flab but also get herself a stylist. Maybe her smugness comes from the fact that weight notwithstanding, she has signed films with the topmost stars be it Salman, Akshay and Saif too (that’s her confession on the show). If she wants to work with Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh as she claims, then she must get herself to the nearest gym.
