Mumbai: Sonakshi Sinha is gradually turning out to be Bollywood’s most sought after actress, with the mega success of ‘Dabangg’ and her latest ‘Rowdy Rathore’. Making strides in B-town with élan, Sonakshi has caught fancy of some reputed filmmakers of B-town. Buzz has it that the beauty has been approached by the producers of ‘Judwaa’ sequel to play the female lead.
Digressing a bit from the original ‘Judwaa’ which starred Salman Khan, the sequel would see Saif Ali Khan romance Junior Shotgun.
Even as rumours are rife that Sonakshi has agreed for the project, the actress is yet to put an official stamp on the business. Talking to daily, a source said, “They (Sonakshi and the filmmakers) haven’t had discussions recently, since they are all busy. Sonakshi, however, is confirmed to star as one of the two heroines in the film. She is like family to producer Sajid Nadiadwala (who has also roped her in for ‘Kick’, starring Salman Khan).”
While Nadiadwala, who is holidaying in London, was unavailable for comment, Sonakshi said, “I can only say that we are in talks about it, but nothing has been confirmed yet.”
At present, Sonakshi is excited about Shirish Kunder’s next. “’Joker’ is special, because it’s the second film I signed after ‘Dabangg’,” she said.
