Sonakshi Sinha on the Mission Mangal poster controversy: Jo bikta hai, woh dikhta hai

Sonakshi Sinha is enjoying a busy August, with Khandaani Shafakhana still in the theatres and Mission Mangal up for release next Friday. Along with Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Nithya Menen, Kirti Kulhari and Akshay Kumar, Sinha has been promoting the latter film.

The biggest talk around the film based on the Mangalyaan has been the inadequate representation of the women on the posters of the film, considering that India’s historic mission was a woman lead mission. Talking about the same, Sonakshi Sinha said, “I also read this somewhere. To all of us, it was team work. Even while we were shooting, nobody was made to feel smaller than the other person, despite there being so many people. And the fact of the matter is that Akshay Kumar is the biggest star in the film! Someone had told me very long back (smiles) and this line has stuck in my head: Jo bikta hai, woh dikhta hai’. Today, if you see Akshay’s collections, he’s the highest selling star in the entire film, that is why (his face is bigger on the poster).”

How the film fares for the women, only time till tell!
