Sonakshi Sinha back to fashion designing with ‘Welcome To New York’


Before stepping into the arc lights with ‘Dabangg’ (2010), Sonakshi Sinha was studying to be an fashion designer. In her next, ‘Welcome To New York’, she is playing an reel fashion designer, and Sinha has been able to relate to her character thoroughly because of her first hand experiences in the same.

Mirror reports Sinha saying, “I’ve had three years of real-life experience in fashion designing but this will be the first reel experience. It was quite easy to bring certain elements from my student days to this character. Back then, I learnt how to sew, cut, embroider, illustrate and dye fabrics. It never felt tedious and I ended up winning ‘Student of the Year’ title in my batch. Scenes in which I’m sketching, cutting cloth, taking measurements took me back to college days.”

Sinha’s character look has also been styled by her college classmate Eka Lakhani, “I think Eka understood the quirks of the character really well and applied it to Jinal’s different and individual style,” she added.

‘Welcome To New York’ also stars Diljit Dosanjh, and is slated to release on 23rd February.
