“I have some action, but very little,” says the actor. “I am there through the climax, so there is definitely some action. But I can’t reveal much as the film is still in the process of editing.”
Sonakshi has also shot for Shirish Kunder’s sci-fi drama, Joker, with Akshay Kumar, but she says she enjoys the action genre more. She says, “Dabangg was an action film, though I was not very physically involved, and now it’s Rowdy Rathore. It’s great fun to be part of it.”
Produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, designer Shabina Khan, and UTV Motion Pictures, Rowdy Rathore will mark the comeback of Akshay Kumar as an action hero after Khakee (2004). Sonakshi says, “The kind of action he does is tremendous — without a body double at that. There is so much to learn just being with him.”
Since she has worked with Akshay in two consecutive films, Sonakshi is now very comfortable with the star. She will work with him once again in director Milan Luthria’s sequel to Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai (2010). She is also shooting for the sequel of Dabangg and director Vikramaditya Motwane’s Lootera opposite Ranveer Singh.
Does she find it difficult to shift from one character to another in such quick succession? Sonakshi says, “I am very comfortable working on multiple projects simultaneously.”
