Sonal Chauhan earlier had accompanied Shah Rukh Khan to attend the birthday party of former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamad.
Her recent release 3G with Neil Nitin Mukesh may have proved to be a dud but that has not put Sonal Chauhan in a glum mood. The actress who flaunted her hot bod in the film is basking in the glory of her sexy new avatar. Sonal has now been invited to attend the F1 Malaysian Grand Prix which is being held from March 22-24.
Says a source, "The organisers wanted a young and sexy actor to represent the new and young Bollywood. The team had met Sonal in December when she was invited to Malaysia for a high-profile event along with Shah Rukh Khan. When the thought of bringing in a female actress from Bollywood came up, they thought of her. Sonal who is an ardent F1 fan jumped at the offer and is all set to take off for Sepang where the race is held."
Earlier, the actress had accompanied SRK on a private jet to attend birthday celebrations of former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamad in Malaysia. The source adds, "She had met a lot of bigwigs at the event including the organisers of the F1 race who have extended an invitation to her. Though she is exhausted with the travelling for the promotions of her film, there is no way she could miss the F1 races. After the event, she plans to take a short holiday there too with some pals."
