A lot has been said about Sonakshi Sinha‘s performance with Justin Bieber this week. Kailesh Kher, Armaan Malik and Amaal Malik weren’t very happy that a Bollywood actress was going to be performing at a music event, while Sonakshi came out and said she isn’t performing at the event.

Richa Chadha was asked whether actors should only stick to acting at a recent press con and she took Sonakshi’s side saying artistes are artistes.

No I don’t think that’s true, because some singers also act. Like, Sonu Nigam has acted, Sukhwinder Singh has acted, Monali Thakur has acted, there are so many good looking singers who can act, and there are so many good looking actors who can sing. Artistes are artistes. There should be enough freedom, if someone wants to make a painting, or sing, or dance. People should be allowed to do what they want to do. I don’t think an actor can ever replace a professional singer because their training, their ‘riyaaz’ is their craft and nobody can take that away from them.

She always makes a lot of sense, doesn’t she?
