I want to be like Sonakshi Sinha: Teriya Magar



New Delhi, June 22: Nepal’s Teriya Magar has been named as the winner of Zee TV’s "DID L’il Masters" Season 3 and the 11-year-old already knows what she wants to do in life. The starstruck kid aspires to be just like “Dabangg” actress Sonakshi Sinha.

Magar, who hails from Rudrapur, in Nepal, defeated Hardik Ruparel, Anushka Chetri and Sadhwin Shetty at the grand finale held at the Balewadi Sports Complex, Pune, June 21. Being a winner of a dance show, it comes as no surprise that she aims to be a choreographer. But it’s Sonakshi who she’s completely smitten with.

“I want to be an actress and choreographer when I grow up. Sonakshi Sinha (favourite actress)… I want to be like her. She is very beautiful and the way she acts and dances, I really like it,” she told Bollywood Country in a telephonic interview from Mumbai.

While there’s still time for the fifth standard student of Rudrapur Ex-Army Academy to start working, she is thrilled about meeting Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan, who attended the grand finale.

“I like him (Varun). I have seen his movies. When he gave me the trophy, I really liked it because he is a hero. ‘Main Tera Hero’ is an awesome movie but ‘Student of the Year’ is even better,” said the girl, who walked away with the KB3 Cup and Rs.10 lakh cheque.

When asked how she would like to spend her prize money, she said: “I will give it to my father, who works in a hotel in Dubai so that he doesn’t stay away from us.”

The father had also mentioned during the grand finale that he was meeting the little one after two years as his work kept him away from his family.

Apart from the prize money and trophy, she will be also required to perform at shows organised by Zee TV as and when requested.

“I have a contract for shows with them,” she said.  (Bollywood Country Report)
