After Ajay Devgn and Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha’s look from war drama Bhuj: The Pride of India was unveiled on Friday. Sonakshi plays the role of Sunderben Jetha Madharparya, a social worker and a farmer, who convinced 299 women of her village to help the Indian army.
In the first look poster, Sonakshi sports a fierce look. The actor shared her look from the movie on social media and wrote, “Honoured to play the HEROIC role of Sunderben Jetha Madharparya, the brave social worker who took 299 women along with her to support the Indian Army!”

However, a section of social media began trolling Sonakshi as soon as her look from the film was revealed. Sonakshi Sinha is often subjected to trolling on social media, which escalated after she failed to answer a Ramayan related question on Kaun Banega Crorepati last year. She, along with Alia Bhatt and Sonam Kapoor, has also been facing a volley of criticism for riding on the privileges of an insider in the wake of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, with many calling for “a boycott” of their films.
A user tweeted Sonakshi’s film poster and wrote, “Soon Karan johar will make a film titled Sonakshi- Horrible pride of Nepotism #SonakshiSinha.”
