Though Sonakshi Sinha got rave reviews and enough applause for her beauty and also her performance in the superhit ‘Dabangg’, it was Malaika Arora Khan who grabbed the oomph trophy for her item number ‘Munni Badnaam’. Now, Sonakshi is teamed with Akshay Kumar in Farah Khan’s next but she won’t have a sizzling item number in the movie as there is no scope for it.
Says 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.”
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 added.
Shirish says, “Sonakshi plays an urban girl in the film so yes, she would be seen in the Western outfits. I am aware that audience wants more of her after Dabangg. With our film, there would be a handful of her as she has a role of substance.
