Mumbai, May 18 -- Actor Sonakshi Sinha, considers Salman Khan to be her mentor, having made her big Bollywood debut with the star in Dabangg (2010). Now we hear that the two seem to share a common passion.
Both actors love to paint and in her next film, Lootera, Sonakshi will be seen playing the role of an artist. She even teaches her co-star, Ranveer Singh how to paint in the movie. And for the launch of one of the songs in the film, she will be seen painting live at an event.
A source close to the movie's team reveals, "Sonakshi, like Salman, has the same hobby that is painting. She likes a lot of Salman's works of art, so much so that she calls herself a fan of his paintings. And recently, Sonakshi has been taking advice from Salman about painting live for the media." The source adds it was the makers' idea that Sonakshi paints live with the media around in order to launch the song 'Sawaar loon' which is based on her and Ranveer's characters and captures the journey of them falling in love while learning the art. The source further says, "She seems quite prepared to put up a good performance."
Director Vikramaditya Motwane says, "Sonakshi has always been fond of Salman's paintings and we are going to paint live for the media at the launch of our first song." The official spokesperson of the movie adds, "It's true that Sonakshi has been taking tips from Salman and everyone will get to see her work at the launch."
