However, the year 2013 has been rather unlucky for Sonakshi as she has appeared in as many as three films, LOOTERA, ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAI DOBAARA and BULLETT RAJA (still running), and all have disappointed/underperformed at the box-office. And even though her item numbers in films like HIMMATWALA and BOSS (especially) were popular, but the films failed to impress.
Today sees the release of Prabhu Dheva's R...RAJKUMAR, and therefore the film becomes all the more critical for Sonakshi, and it is very important that R...RAJKUMAR hits the bull's-eye and gives Sonakshi's career (which is probably going through its worse phase) a new lease of life.
Although Prabhu's excellent track record and his hold on the masala genre, gives one the hope that R...RAJKUMAR would turn out to be a successful fare, though the going will indeed be tough!
With masala losing its sheen/ flavour with the audience it's time for Sonakshi to smell the coffee and reinvent herself.
