--- Personal Quotes ---

"Trying to define the perfect guy is the reason why I’m single right now. So I’ve decided to take it
as it comes. Of course, basic things like a sense of humour, honesty and good height are a must."

"I just want to relax. I’m working now, no? Bas, enough. After marriage, I’m just going to chill. But
I am not getting married anytime soon."

"I am not here to be size zero, but hero."

"I have a good sense of humour in life. I can take a joke on myself and I don’t take myself seriously.
I’m a happy person. There is humour in everything; you just have to find it."

"What is the point of doing anything if you’re not happy. I’d never do something if I wasn’t happy
doing it. If I wouldn’t enjoy acting then I would leave it and find something else to do. But I love it.
Being on the sets and meeting people, makes me happy."

"Breeders, pet stores and people who don't sterilise their animals are responsible for all the animals
who end up homeless... Every time someone buys a dog or cat from a breeder or pet store, a
homeless animal roaming the streets or waiting in an animal shelter loses a chance at a home and a
good life..."

"My deadline is always 1.30 a.m. I am still treated like a little girl in my house and I am thankful about
that... I have always had a sheltered and protective life, but they (family members) have given enough
space for myself and have guided me all the time..."

"Oh, I’m full of flaws! I’m sometimes very impulsive, I don’t look like your average heroine nowadays,
I’m not the size zero kinds, which I’m okay with."

"I’m not allowed to throw any tantrums at home... My mom still shouts at me if I don’t clean my room
or wake up late."

"I’m a very lazy person, except when it comes to work. So I compensate for everything on my free
days. I sleep, I go out to eat, I read a book, so yeah, pretty regular stuff."

"I don’t bring the attention home. The autographs happen when you’re out in the public eye; but that’s
where it stops. That’s my defining quality—I’m not too serious about either praise or criticism; I take
them both in the same stride."

"I don’t have much to not be confident about. I’m well educated, I can deliver a line, and I have more
than three expressions on my face."

"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."

"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!"

"I’m a very jeans and T-shirt kind of a person. Even when I dress up, I like keeping it simple."

"From the time I entered the industry, I have always been clear about certain things — no short
clothes, no kissing, no bikinis. Nobody comes to me with such roles. And I have no dearth of work."

"Everybody has his or her own individuality. Thankfully, I have been able to make my own identity.
Now people know me as Sonakshi Sinha."

"Our first purpose is to entertain. It all depends on an individual's perspective. If a girl is not
covered from head to toe, it does not mean she is inviting you to ogle at her. If we are interpreting
it that way, it is not the girl, but our upbringing that is to be blamed. It is the thought process that
needs to be changed."

"I am happy the way I am. And I am happy that my films are doing well at the box-office. Small town
is very big in cinema today, so why do you want me to change? Jab tak aisi filmein chal rahi hain, tab
tak main aisi hi rahungi (Since such movies are getting successful, I'll act this way only)."

"If I were to be gifted something, it would have to be a huge diamond ring."

"I’d love a simple and fuss-free wedding. And of course my parents, advice would have top priority.
My dream wedding would be on the beach with my family, closest friends and colleagues."

"I am very clear about why I am here. It's because of the love for what I do. The day I will stop
enjoying, I will leave it because there is no attachment to stardom or perks that come along and not
to fame."

"For me I don't have time to sit and cry over it (flops). Even if my film does well, you will not see me
blowing my own trumpet. There is no time to sit and dwell on whether it's done well or not done well.
I have never seen my dad getting upset over bad films. So, may be, it comes from there and may be
the kind of person I am because I was bought up in a way where you treat success and failure in the
same way."

"I don't react to it at all when people talk about your weight. Let people talk about it."

"The nose ring plays a special part in my film and real life. I like wearing it now and then. If you would
recall my debut film ‘Dabangg’ also saw me wearing a nose ring. It signifies a piece of Indian art
associated with the typical Indian woman and I feel comfortable wearing it."
