The talented actress finds the language is full of respect and romance. She has always been keen to learn how to speak and often even tries to use some words in her everyday conversations.
Sonakshi picks Urdu words from songs she hears or scripts she reads and mentally jots it down.
She feels lucky that twice now her character names have been Urdu, Pakhi in Lootera and now Noor. Pakhi means the knife in Urdu and Noor means the light. She likes the way the names sound and also their meaning.
