Katrina Kaif may be scorching the screen by turning 'Sheila' for Akshay Kumar for their upcoming film together. However, Sonakshi Sinha won't quite be following suit. Yes, she would be donning a glamorous avtar for her just announced film with Akshay. However, chances are near to nil that she would be following the footsteps of much senior Katrina as of now at least.
Laughs Farah Khan who is the co-producer of the film along with Shirish Kunder and Akshay Kumar, "Rest assured, she wouldn't be getting into a 'Sheila Ki Jawani' mode for our next film. After all her role in the film doesn't demand that such a situation for that at all."
Now that could well be a little disheartening for Sinha junior who had to silently watch Malaika Arora walk away with 'seetis' and 'taalis' as 'Munni Badnaam' [DABANGG]. Thankfully though, Sonakshi would be getting out of her 'saree' avtar in DABANGG and would be donning a much glamorous persona.
"Sonakshi plays an urban girl in the film so yes, she would be seen in the Western outfits", confirms Shirish for whom this would be his second directorial outing after JAAN-E-MANN, "I am aware that audience want more of her after DABANGG. With our film, there would be a handful of her as she has a role of substance. She isn't there just for 3-4 scenes."
Farah too is aware about the expectations and promises that there would be a different side of Sonakshi that audience will see. "After Katrina's dance number in my upcoming film, I know that audience will expect yet another stylized yet sensual item song from Sonakshi as well. However, we can't place an item number just for the sake of it", she smiles.
Guess Sonakshi would have to wait for some more time before she gets her own 'Munni Badnaam' or 'Sheila Ki Jawani'.
