Asli Sona aka Sonakshi Sinha blow candles on June 2. In a short period, Asli Sona (as she is fondly called by the fans) has managed to carve a special place in the hearts of the audience.
Sonakshi, who made her Bollywood debut with the movie ‘Dabbang’ co-starring Salman Khan, is not only a polished actor but also has major skills in canvas painting and sketching. The actor has made quite a few peculiar art pieces during the coronavirus lockdown. Making a perfect use of her art, Asli Sona has recently, collaborated with FanKind (a private social service organisation that raises funds for charity work) and auctioned her artworks to help raise funds to provide meals to daily wagers and less privileged.

The actor also had a war of words with filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri based over a throwback picture posted by Sonakshi Sinha during the lockdown.
Vivek Agnihotri had shared a post and wrote, who shoots in Such times? Sonakshi also urged Mumbai Police to know about the procedure of spreading fake news. “Excuse me @MumbaiPolice, @OfficeofUT what is the procedure to stop people from spreading rumors and fake news at a time like this? Asking for a responsible citizen, sitting at home, practicing social distancing and NOT shooting – ME,” she wrote.
