Sonakshi Sinha is not known to be the friendliest of actresses. Post her catfights with Katrina Kaif, Zarine Khan and Asin, the latest to join the list is Shriya Saran. And the catfight was on full display at the Celebrity Cricket League finale.
During the Chennai Rhinos' innings, Sonakshi came with a posse of bodyguards and walked towards Sridevi, Boney Kapoor, Subhash Ghai and her father Shatrughan Sinha — who came in especially for the match and were seated near the Team Chennai dugout. She was sitting next to her dad, chatting and cheering.
The highlight of the innings break however, was actor Shriya Saran's much-publicized performance. And no sooner had the actress gone on stage than Sonakashi got up and began walking towards team Karnataka's dugout. On getting a glimpse of Sonakshi, the crowd went ballistic. Ignoring Shriya's performance, they got busy calling out to Sonakshi, who in turn waved at the crowd, causing more commotion.
"Sonakshi clearly tried to steal Shriya's thunder. She does not like anyone getting friendly with Salman and all through the CCL, Shriya has been sharing a great rapport with Sallu. This did not go down well with Sonakshi. What she did at the stadium was very juvenile," says a source. Call it a twist of fate, but Shriya did manage to get back at Sonakshi. "Shriya was slated to perform to 'Munni Badnaam' from "Dabangg." As soon as she began to shimmy, the crowd forgot Sonakshi and began cheering for her instead. Sonakshi, immediately went back to her seat, sulking all the way," adds the source.
"Sonakshi does not like Kat, Asin or even Zarine because they are close to Salman. It's the same with Shriya too. The rivalry between the two however, does not end here. The two are being pitted against each other onscreen in Kamal Haasan's upcoming film, "Vishwaroopam." Maybe that is also an issue," said the source.
