Is Akshay Kumar being a mentor to Sonakshi Sinha?

Sonakshi Sinha has worked with Akshay Kumar in Rowdy Rathore and Joker, and now she will star opposite him in the Thuppakki remake. And reports suggest that Akki has been helping Sinha find the right roles. Is it true?

“The fact that I am mentoring myself is more than enough. Besides, with such a stalwart as Sonakshi Sinha’s father, do you really think she needs my mentoring?”
