She is my only daughter and very close to me. I am a proud father because, over the years, she has also grown as an actor. From Lootera to Dahaad to now Heera Mandi, she has proved to be a fantastic actor.”

“If my daughter is getting married, I will give her my blessings and support her decision and choice. Sonakshi has the right to choose her companion, and I will be the happiest father on her wedding day. I will always wish her the best…ek hi toh beti hai meri,” Shatrughan added. Shatrughan also mentioned that he was unaware of the wedding plans. “I am being asked by people close to me why I am not aware of this (the supposed wedding), and the media is aware of it.
