When contestant Shehnaz sang Taakte rehte tujhko saanjh saware from the movie Dabang to serenade the gorgeous Sonakshi, mentor Wajid took Sonakshi’s hand, escorted her to the stage and joined Shehnaz. After the performance Sajid asked Sonakshi to mouth the famous ‘Khamoshhh…!!!’ dialogue like her father! But she politely refused and said,

“I am Sonakshi Sinha, not Shatrughan Sinha. I have my own dialogues.”


Mohammad Zain
