When Sonakshi Called Sinha’s Mother Shatrughan Sinha ‘Extra Conservative’: ‘The Background He Comes From…’

When Sonakshi Called Sinha’s Mother Shatrughan Sinha ‘Extra Conservative’: ‘The Background He Comes From…’

Last week, news broke that Sonakshi Sinha is all set to get married to her long-time boyfriend Zaheer Iqbal. A leaked wedding invitation confirmed the news and revealed that Sonakshi has been dating Zaheer for seven years. Amid the news of the wedding, the actress’ old interviews about her weddings have resurfaced online; and in 2012, Sonakshi and Poonam Sinha spoke about Shatrughan Sinha’s concerns about Sonakshi.

Sonakshi and her mother, Poonam Sinha, appeared on Simi Grewal’s show, India’s Most Desirable, in 2012. When Simi called Shatrughan a strict and conservative father, Poonam said, “He is as conservative as any father can be, and I would say a lot. more so, because from the background he comes from, he is extra conservative about her.”

Sonakshi Sinha said, “Every father worries when his daughter worries.” “He doesn’t want me to go to my husband’s house. He wants to bring my husband to our house,” she added. Sonakshi said her father wanted to “build a house” where she could “bring” her husband.

Meanwhile, Sonakshi and Zaheer are said to be tying the knot on June 23. In his first reaction to the wedding rumours, Shatrughan Sinha admitted that he was not aware of the wedding. Later, Pahlaj Nilhani confirmed that the veteran actor was angry with his daughter but it wouldn’t last long.

Speaking to Times Now, Pahlaj said: “Ha, but he can’t stay angry for long, not with Sonakshi. She is his charger. Shaadi nahin attends karne ka koi sawaal hi nahipaida hota. As Shatruji said to you: aaj kal he bachche inform karte hain, permission nahin lete. Why would he be upset if Sonakshi marries the boy of her choice? Shatruji himself married a girl of his choice forty years ago. Even I chose my own life partner when I married my wife. You shouldn’t have unrealistic expectations of your children.”

For the unversed, Shatrughan had told Times Now that he was not aware of Sonakshi’s wedding and added, ‘People close to me are asking me why I am not aware of this (the supposed wedding), and the media are aware of It. All I can say is: aaj kal ke bachche permission nahin lete maa-baap ke, sirf inform karte hain. We are waiting for word.”

He later spoke to Times of India and said that while he is neither confirming nor denying the wedding rumours, he is giving Sonakshi all his blessings for her big day – whenever it comes. “If my daughter gets married, I will give her my blessings and support her decision and choice. Sonakshi has the right to choose her companion, and I will be the happiest father on her wedding day. I will always wish her well… ek hello toh beti hai meri,” Shatrughan said.
