Sonakshi wants to break into glamorous role

Mumbai: After playing demure village belle in `Dabangg`, newbie Sonakshi now wants to do something different and has signed `Race 2`, a sequel to Abbas Mastan`s `Race`.

“I believe as an actress one must do different roles. I wanted to change my image from being a traditional girl to a glamorous one. So I signed `Race 2`," Sonakshi said, on the sidelines of FICCI Frames awards.

Director duo Abbas-Mustan wants Sonakshi to do away with her `gaon ki gori` image and look stylish and chic so the actress is busy shedding extra pounds. I had to first lose weight for my debut film. Now I have
to get into even better shape for my two upcoming films `Joker` and `Race 2`, the 23-year-old actress said.

Sonakshi, daughter of veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha has replaced the sultry actress Bipasha Basu in the sequel to `Race`.

Sonakshi would be seen next opposite Akshay Kumar in Shirish Kunder`s `Joker`, a 3D film. Then there is `Race 2` alongside Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham and Deepika Padukone. These two films will be released this year.

Besides, she will be seen again opposite Salman Khan in `Kick`, an action film, which is a remake of a Tamil film while in `Vishwaroop` Sonakshi will be paired opposite Kamal Hassan.
