The Dabangg actress once weighed 90 kilos! Here's how she dropped all the extra weight.

There was a time when Sonakshi Sinha and perhaps the people closest to her never imagined that she would become a star, although destiny dictated otherwise -- she catapulted to fame with her grand entry to B-Town in Dabangg, opposite Salman Khan.

What few know is the effort it took for her to light up the big screen. A few years ago, at 90 kgs Sonakshi was more than just overweight. While studying fashion designing, however, she realised that she needed to lose at least one-third of her weight, not just to look good but also to feel healthy.

  • She loves the company of other individuals during a workout session.
  • She shows preference for yoga over aerobics.
  • She often takes pleasure in playing tennis.
