Why Rina Roy is called Sonakshi Sinha’s mother? Once upon a time, Shatrughan’s daughter went to Bifar!
Comparison between two stars is common in Bollywood. Often seeing some star, people start comparing his looks with any other star. And give him the title of his lookalike, twin, son or daughter. One such comparison is made between Sonakshi Sinha and Reena Roy, a famous actress of the 70s.
10 years ago, when Sonakshi made her Bollywood debut with the film ‘Dabangg’, everyone remembered the yesteryear actress Reena Roy after seeing Sonakshi’s face. Sonakshi’s face is so similar to Reena that people started calling her the daughter of Reena Roy. This comparison was fueled by the romantic past of Reena Roy and Sonakshi Sinha’s father Shatrughan Sinha.
It is known to all that there was a time when Shatrughan Sinha and Reena Roy were so madly in love with each other that everything was forgotten. Shatrughan Sinha’s first meeting with Reena Roy was during the film ‘Kalicharan’ released in 1976. At that time Reena was only 19 years old. Shatrughan Sinha liked Reena’s beauty. However, the love between the two started during the shooting of the film ‘Vishwanath’ released in 1978.
Reena and Shatrughan’s love blossomed rapidly. And the news of this love also started for ages. The special thing was that Shatrughan was 11 years older than Reena, yet this distance also felt less in front of his love. Both were so deeply in love that people started waiting for their marriage.
All the beautiful dreams of Reena were shattered in the year 1980 when Shatrughan suddenly married his longtime girlfriend Poonam Chandirmani. But even after marriage, Shatrughan Sinha continued to meet Reena Roy. This extra marital affair of Shatrughan Sinha was very controversial. In the end, Reena Roy took her step back and married Pakistani cricketer Mohsin Khan.
But in 2010, the memories of Shatrughan Sinha and Reena Roy’s controversial love story were once again fresh in people’s mind when they saw the first glimpse of Sonakshi Sinha.
Then seeing the reference of Reena’s past, people started fabricated all kinds of theories and started trying to prove that Sonakshi is actually the daughter of Shatrughan and Reena Roy, not Shatrughan Sinha and Poonam Sinha. Which Reena gave to Shatrughan’s family.
Sonakshi also remained silent at the beginning of hearing such things for her father and comparing her looks with Reena Roy. But when the water passed above the head, Sonakshi also broke her silence and gave a befitting reply to the people.
Sonakshi said, “I think this (Shatrughan Sinha and Reena Roy affair) happened when I was not even born. I came to know about it when I was growing up and started to understand things. But I was not going to punish my father for this. This is their past. And everyone has a past. So I don’t think too much about it. Nor do I pay attention to it. Like I said, it just makes for some really good headlines and juicy gossip. But for me, it’s my family.”
Simultaneously, Sonakshi replied on her comparison with Reena Roy that her face resembles that of her mother Poonam Sinha.
On the other hand, Reena Roy also broke her silence on this comparison and said that “Sonakshi looks like her mother Poonam Sinha, not mine. This comparison is common in Bollywood. When I did the film ‘Zakhmi’, people started calling me the daughter of Asha Parekh and Nasir Hussain, while Dimple Kapadia was called Nargis’s daughter. Such comparisons are common in Bollywood.”
