Sonakshi Sinha, whose big break had been Salman Khan's film Dabangg in 2010, recently revealed in an interview with a local daily that she was never inclined towards pursuing acting in the first place. The actor revealed that she had not been consulted for the role of Rajjo and was only told to start filming for the movie.

The actor revealed that there had been instances when fans came up to her and said that they would want an ideal daughter-in-law just like her character in Dabangg.
