From day one, Sonakshi Sinha has been supporting lockdown and telling her fans to stay at home and be safe. However, a picture in a tabloid created a controversy for Sonakshi.

Well, filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri, posted the picture of Sonakshi from the tabloid, and tweeted, “Who shoots in such times?” To this, the actress replied, “Being a Director and member of many unions and film bodies one would expect you to be better informed that Absolutely NO one is shooting since studios are shut and its a national lockdown! I believe Classic freeze frame means throwback in @MumbaiMirror terms, clearly meaning its an old picture, from 5th Nov 2019 to be precise! Aaah… those were the days!”

The actress later posted, “Excuse me @MumbaiPolice , @OfficeofUT what is the procedure to stop people from spreading rumors and fake news at a time like this? Asking for a responsible citizen, sitting at home, practicing social distancing and NOT shooting – ME.”

In his clarification, the filmmaker replied, “The dig is at @MumbaiMirror not you. If I have to say something to you, I’d tag you. It’s very insensitive to print such pictures in a trying time like this giving wrong impression. As a star you should also very strongly condemn this kind of yellow and insensitive journalism.” To this, Sonakshi replied, “U haven’t tagged who ur taking a dig at,nor did u mention source of the picture.Nor hv u replied or clarified to anyone attacking me after ur statement.Rule no.1 of taking a dig – dont post someone else’s picture 2 take a dig at someone else,be specific.Thank u & goodbye.”

Well, we must say that Sonakshi gave a befitting reply to Vivek Agnihotri.

Talking about her movies, Sonakshi will next be seen on the big screen on Bhuj: The Pride Of India. The movie is slated to release on  14th August 2020.
