His EK VIVAAH AISA BHI is slowly but steadily making inroads into audience's hearts. Meanwhile, Sonu Sood continues to have fond memories about working in the film, especially with the Rajshri setup which made things easy for him on the sets.
'Barjatyas are not the people who think about expenses', says Sonu fondly, 'Every day they would ask me whether I was feeling good and in mood to work. I had to reassure them time and again that I was all in good sprits to work but they would still enquire this with every actor to make sure that they give their best in front of the camera. Now this is so different from some of the other productions I have worked where you are asked to work even with a broken leg.'
Revealing more about his first ever stint with a Rajshri production, Sonu says, 'On the very first day of my meeting with them, they told me how passionate they are about making films. It seems that this is what they actually live and breath. It is rare and the treatment meted by them is so sweet that you yourself tend to be sweet in return.'
He must be happy though that with EK VIVAAH AISA BHI, he has been accepted as a romantic hero too.
'Well, in films down South, my lover boy persona was being taken care of', smiles Sonu, 'However, what I shy away from is being repetitive films. For me everything has to fall in place, be it the actors I work with, the script, the director. Somehow in Bollywood not many right roles were coming in till JODHAA AKBAR happened. I guess its all destiny and it was nice that I waited for good things to happen. I am glad that I didn't fall into any image and the result is varied films like JODHAA AKBAR, SINGH IS KINNG, EK VIVAAH AISA BHI and my next release DHOONDTE REH JAAOGE.'
