Sonakshi, 25, is younger than Tanuja's daughters Kajol and Tanisha. Yet they managed to have a good rapport.
It was their passion for reading and their love to taste different varieties of delicacies which brought them together, says a source from the sets of the movie, scheduled for release Nov 13.
?Tanuja aunty and Sona have become really close. They both love reading and would talk about their favourite books and authors all the time. They even recommend books to each other.
"Tanuja aunty is very fond of Sonakshi and she even cooked some tasty delicious rajma for her when we were shooting in Patiala,? said the source.
The duo used to stroll near the shooting area and enjoy the scenic beauty together as well.
