When was the last time when a lead female actress wooing her lover had the gumption to inform him that he was gazing at his navel? Well, Sonakshi Sinha did that with aplomb and an element of innocence in ROWDY RATHORE and it never went overboard but conveyed the message that it wanted to convey. Indeed Sonakshi Sinha seems to be carving a separate niche for herself, a niche that is defined by sticking to Indian couture and not relying on the western clothes to make a statement and splash.
Be it DABANGG or ROWDY RATHORE, Sonakshi Sinha is one actress who, with two films, has created her own fan following.
Underlining part is that by choosing to wear Indian clothes in the characters that she has portrayed in both the films, she has not injected an element of submission but has leveraged it to convey an element of subtle sensuality. Khushwant Singh would be mightily pleased that here is a girl who has chosen sari to project the feminine grace on to the silver screen.
She is only two film old, but she has held on to herself against two of the biggest stars of Hindi cinema, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar, who both are twice her age. She has a perfect sense and timing of comedy which came out with distinction in both DABANGG and in ROWDY RATHORE. However, one only hopes that she does not get bracketed with the likes of the senior colleagues, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar, but gets an opportunity to work with her contemporaries like Ranbir Kapoor, Imran Khan, Shahid Kapoor etc. This premise is being put forward as the next film of Sonakshi Sinha that is going to hit the screen is JOKER where she again stars opposite Akshay Kumar.
Advantage with Sonakshi Sinha lies in the fact that owing to her pedigree of being the daughter of Shatrughan Sinha, she has able to cultivate a large band of fan following in the Hindi heartland, one of the biggest commercial territories for a distributor.
Sonakshi Sinha's terrific sense of timing for comedy has the potential to create a laugh riot when she stars opposite either an Imran Khan or a Ranbir Kapoor. One only hopes that she gets a chance to act opposite these two actors in the near future and create a new benchmark for herself.
