India, June 2: Daughter of Shatrughan Sinha and Bollywood Actor Sonakshi Sinha had once said that she had told her mother, Poonam Sinha, in her childhood that she would quit school.

In an interview, Sonakshi recalled the days when her father actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha became a minister, heavy security was deployed for her, adding that she felt ‘terrible‘.

In an interview with actor Kareena Kapoor Khan’s radio show What Women Want last year, Sonakshi had said, “I would feel very weird that everywhere I went, someone would always come with me. When my father became a minister, I was in the 6th or 7th standard. Suddenly, heavy security and gunmen started travelling with us. I went to school and a jeep filled with security guards carrying guns followed me. The entire school was like, ‘What is happening?’ I felt so terrible. I went and told my mother that I would not go to school until all this stops. I think that was my first taste of real independence, to make all this stop happening.”

Talking about her college, she had said that she intentionally chose one that was far away from where her home. Citing the reason, Sonakshi had said that she did so to experience travelling by train.

You have to learn these things on your own. Since childhood, I have had that thing about being independent. I want to learn things and grow as a person,” she had added.
