Mumbai: While Sonakshi Sinha is tight-lipped about her new reputation as someone who gets into fights with her female co-stars, her parents Poonam and Shatrughan Sinha are far from amused.
Though Sonakshi is unwilling to talk about her rather curious reputation, mother Poonam is agonized.

"We don't know where these stories are coming from. But this is not our daughter. We read she has a problem with Katrina Kaif. Katrina had endorsed the product that Sonakshi has lately started endorsing.

The fact is Katrina stopped endorsing that product 10 years ago. So where is the question of any stress over it? When the stories began to germinate, Sonakshi even sent Katrina a message explaining that there was no ill-will. However, Katrina never replied," said Poonam.
Those close to Sonakshi feel there is more to these attempts to portray her as a spoilsport, than meets the eye.

 "Every other day, there's a story about Sonakshi having a problem with an actress. Sonakshi is bothered because her parents are disturbed by such reports. She has decided to restrict her social activities to a bare minimum," says a friend of the actress.

"Whether it's Katrina, Zarine or Anushka, they're good girls from cultured families. I feel it's the people around them who are creating trouble.
Perhaps, some of them can't bear the thought of our daughter becoming so popular with just one film. There's space enough for everyone.
I'm asking everyone to let Sonakshi be. It has become very difficult for her to work in this suffocating an atmosphere," said Poonam.

When asked about her embarrassing reputation of being a belligerent girl, Sonakshi laughed, "Every morning I wake up wondering who is going to be the next person I am supposed to be fighting with. It's better to just focus on work”.
