Isn’t it shocking no one has offered me dance film yet, asks Sonakshi Sinha
While there’s some time for a dance film to happen, Sonakshi Sinha has her plate full with films like Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, Kalank and Dabangg 3.Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha, who will next be seen in Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, has made her love for dance apparent through her films. The actress can be seen grooving in two of the songs of her forthcoming movie. Stage shows have also given Sonakshi a chance to flaunt her skills. Now, she wants to be a part of a full-fledged dance film.
Be it Saree ke fall sa or Gandi baat, Sonakshi’s dance moves have been appreciated by the audience, so the actor finds it surprising that she hasn’t been offered any dance-based movie yet. “I would love to do a dance-based film. Isn’t it shocking no one has put me in a dance film yet? I would love to do that because I love dancing freely and that translates on screen,” Sonakshi.
While there’s some time for a dance film to happen, the actor has her plate full with films like Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, Kalank and Dabangg 3. While Kalank will mark her first collaboration with Dharma Productions, Dabangg 3 will reunite her with her first film team. The actor made her debut with Dabangg in 2010.
When asked if her equation with superstar Salman Khan, her Dabangg co-star and mentor, has changed over the last eight years, Sonakshi said, “Honestly no. The dynamic with Salman Khan hasn’t changed in the last few years, why will it change in the film. It’ll only get better. Dabangg is a home ground, it’s a family I began with. Just going back to them is always a pleasure. This time around, Prabhu sir (Prabhudheva director) has been added to the film. It just keeps getting better,” she said. Sonakshi got instant fame after playing a feisty village-belle, Rajjo, in Dabangg, and the actor says the love story between Rajjo and Chulbul Pandey (Salman) will be important in the third instalment of the action franchise.”The equation between Chulbul and Rajjo stood out in Dabangg. It wasn’t only about action which it usually is in a Salman Khan film. That’s something the audience likes, appreciates, expects. We can’t take that away from them.”
Talking about Kalank, which is a multi-starrer period drama, the actor said, contrary to how serious the film is, the cast indulges in many light moments off the screen. Directed by Abhishek Varman, Kalank also stars Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur. It will release in April 2019. “It’s great because you’re sharing screen space with such wonderful actors. Everyone gets along really well. The nature of the film might be serious we were very non-serious off camera,” Sonakshi said. “It’s an honour for anyone to work with Madhuri. We have idolised her. Just to be in the same film with her is a dream come true. She’s a living legend.”
Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi is a sequel to 2015 romantic-comedy Happy Bhag Jayegi. Also starring Jimmy Shergill and Diana Penty, the flick will release on August 24.
