It's a double whammy for Sonakshi Sinha who celebrates her birthday this year alongside her forthcoming release UTV's out-and-out action film ROWDY RATHORE produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and co-produced by Shabinaa Khan, scheduled to release on the 1st June.
Says an excited Sonakshi Sinha, "It makes me feel special considering the film comes a day before my birthday. It's also the first big movie after the IPL. I am looking at it as an advance birthday present."
Adds Shikha Kapur, senior VP (marketing) of UTV Motion Pictures, "Our movie comes just a day before her birthday and we hope it will do well and make it a great day for Sonakshi."

The actress has also managed to impress director Prabhu Deva so much so that he ended up writing a meatier role for her in the film.
All praise for the actress director Prabhu Deva says, "I feel that she is easily 25 films old. You just have to read out the dialogues to her once and she is ready to give the shot. Same holds true for her dances as well as she hardly needs much time to pick them up. Moreover she is quite punctual too. These are some of the basic traits required for a successful leading lady and Sonakshi has it all."
The director further adds, "Sonakshi is not just a commercial heroine, she is star material."
