She's had two back-to-back hits (Dabangg and Rowdy Rathore), one flop (Joker) and two highly-anticipated releases (Son of Sardaar and Lootera).
So ahead of SOS release this Diwali, she played host at two separate screenings of her film: for Salim Khan and Poonam Sinha.
While Sonakshi went ethnic in a white and yellow anarkali for the first screening, she changed into comfy jeans, tee and a jacket for the second one.
"Son of Sardaar was fun and a completely different experience," said Sonakshi.
"My character is very colourful and vibrant, and I am doing a lot in this movie that I have not done before - like action and riding a bike."
Ah! So that's why you're trying to rock a leather jacket! But those slip-ons let you down, biker chick!
