It was an eventful 2013 for Sonakshi Sinha when she enjoyed four biggies to her name – LOOTERA, ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI DOBAARA, BULLETT RAJA and R… RAJKUMAR with a special song and dance affair in BOSS.

Now she is back with Akshay Kumar as a leading lady in HOLIDAY and one expects certain fun element too in there, considering the fact that it has been pitched as a commercial entertainer.
‘Yes, HOLIDAY is quite thrilling in its own way, and of course quite entertaining. It has some great music as well as light moments, even though the main essence of the film is very serious. I love the core plot of the film which is about an officer always being on duty. Also, the central protagonist character played by Akshay is very interesting as he goes all out to stop a crime from happening. A concept like this has never been tried before in Bollywood,’ promises Sonakshi.

While one waits to see that unfold on screen, the film also has her working with director A.R. Murugadoss for the first time ever. How has that turned out to be?
‘He is a very sorted director,’ says Sonakshi, ‘What is really impressive about him is that he is always very thoroughly prepared. When it comes to his core work, he knows what he is doing. He is very intelligent too and that has helped in driving the intelligent plot of the film. Actually, when we started shooting for the film, he was quiet and in his world. However, Akshay has now changed him completely. Today, he can be seen laughing all the time.’
Come Friday and one hopes that producer Vipul Shah too laughs all the way to the bank once HOLIDAY sees a record widespread release at the box office.
