Sonakshi Sinha loves her nose ring

New Delhi, June 22 (IANS) Actress Sonakshi Sinha is one of the few actresses who wears a nose accessory even on screen. She says it is convenient to wear and gives her the 'desi' look.

Sonakshi had her nose pierced when she was 16.

"I have worn a nose ornament right from my first film ('Dabangg') and I keep altering from a nose ring to a stud," Sonakshi, who is known for sporting various Indian avatars in her films, said in a statement.

The 26-year-old will flaunt a nose ring once again in her forthcoming film "Lootera". The actress will wear a traditional nose ring, which also enhances her character in the movie.

"I have used a very traditional Bengali-looking nose stud in the shape of a flower. It's a hassle-free accessory and is also the mark of an Indian woman," she tweeted.
