There is no escaping Yasmeen, or for that matter Jasmine, for Sonakshi Sinha. Though her on-screen name in her upcoming film ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI DOBARA has been changed from Yasmeen to Jasmine, the name is continuing to haunt her at any given moment. This happened recently in Dubai where she had stepped in for a promotional event for LOOTERA.
"To her utter amazement, the luxury yacht on which she was promoting LOOTERA was called 'Jasmine'. This was a real surprise for Sonakshi because she had all the reasons to believe that finally all the controversy surrounding her name in the Milan Luthria film had been taken care of," informs a source in Dubai.
However that was not the case to be as reel and real life came together for Sonakshi.
"Ever since she stepped into the film, there have been references of her character being inspired by Mandakini. Though that was instantly denied by her and the makers, the same name ended up causing quite a flutter. When she saw the name on the yacht, she was speechless and didn't know how to react to the coincidence," the source continues.
Sonakshi just went with the flow and avoided any questions that came her way around the name and its various references, through the trip.
Well, there was a reason why Shakespeare said - 'What's in a name?'
