The charming ‘chulbuli’ Sonakshi Sinha whose runaway hit ‘Dabangg’ catapulted her into the big league is all set with her second mega venture opposite Akshay Kumar, titled ‘Rowdy Rathore’ which releases today.
“My performance, my dances, my stunt scene from a moving elevator and overall my new screen avatar in ‘Rowdy…’ will wow the audiences, especially my fans who may get a pleasant shock .
This movie, ‘Rowdy….’ co-produced by the acclaimed Sanjay Leela Bhansali and directed by Prabhu Deva-sir, will also go to prove, that I am not just a one-film-wonder. My parents (Poonam and Shatrughan Sinha) are very happy the way my career is going great guns,” smiles the shapely Sinha who has six more movies on hand including ‘Joker’, ‘Lootera’ and ‘Son of Sardar’.
Coincidentally, June 2nd happens to be Sonakshi’s birthday and she gushes that “the news of ‘…Rathore’ being a hit movie will be one of my most memorable birthday gifts.”
Considering that ‘Rowdy…’ a clever remake of a southside regional flick, was rarely used in Mumbai tapori lingo which prefers terms like ‘mawaali’, ‘goonda’, or even ‘outline’, wouldn’t it be a local stumbling speed-breaker?
“No way. It is already being picked up and will gain popularity once the movie releases. If you recall, even the term ‘Dabangg’ (her debut movie) was not a popular term in Mumbai, as locally people generally use ‘bindaas’ or ‘daring’. But once the movie releases ‘Rowdy…’ will infectiously became a household word,” counters Sonakshi who once again plays the ‘gaon-ki-gori’ in the movie. She weaves her fingers through her tresses as she clarifies. “Actually my character Paro this time is a gaon-ki-gori like in ‘Dabangg’, but its defiantly different. She is not the docile, bashful types but a ‘phoolzadi-phataaka’ with an attitude, who falls madly in love with Akshay Kumar’s rowdy character,” enthuses the dainty actress who initially dabbled in fashion designing and ramp-modelling before she plunged into the heroine’s clothes.
What made Sonakshi agree to do an item-song ‘Chhamak Challo’ in her second movie?
“Lot of people have this ‘galat faimi’ that I have done an item-song ‘in ‘Rowdy…’. The number ‘Chhamak Challo’ is a situational wedding-backdrop song which moves with the story is all I can disclose,” smiles the actress who is eagerly waiting for her first-hero-cum-mentor Salman Khan’s compliments on her screen-performance in ‘Rowdy Rathore’.
