|She can dance, emote and do comedy -- Sonakshi Sinha is an accomplished actress, feels director Prabhu Deva. So, while Prabhu is already doing Rambo Rajkumar with her, he has also signed Sonakshi for his next, an Ajay Devgn-starrer.
However, Prabhu Deva wasn’t sure whether she will say yes to his project with Ajay Devgn. As per sources, when Prabhu offered the Devgn-starrer to Sonakshi he was not sure if she would opt for a male-centric film at this juncture in her career, when she’s playing central characters in films like LINK>Lootera and Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbaai Dobaara!. But to his surprise, she agreed.
Prabhu Deva’s wish was granted! However, the director wasn’t satisfied with the role he offered to Sonakshi, so he got down to rewrite it so that her character integrates well into the script’s central drama. It’s learnt there was not much for the heroine to do in the film until Sonakshi stepped into the project.
Talking about his fixation with the actress, Prabhu says, “People ask, why Sonakshi every time? I ask, why not? She is a big star and a complete actress.” The director first worked with her in Rowdy Rathore, and since then they share a great rapport.
Prabhu Deva is also grateful to Sonakshi for agreeing to do Rambo Rajkumar that has Shahid Kapoor in the lead, and now when she has given her nod for his actioner with Ajay Devgn, Prabhu wants to be sure that the actress’ presence in the film is justified.
The director will also give her an image makeover in this film. Till now, Sonakshi Sinha has mostly done roles that required her to look desi, but in his next Prabhu Deva will turn her into a sophisticated city girl. That’s something the fans of Sonakshi Sinha will love to see.
