Sonakshi Sinha, who is in ‘Race 2’, will have to lose some more weight and glam up big time as director duo Abbas-Mustan want to do away completely with her ‘gaon ki gori’ image . So the actress is busy shedding those extra pounds.
"First, I had to lose weight for my debut in ‘Dabangg’. Now I’ve to get into even better shape for ‘Joker’ and ‘Race 2’. For the last two years that’s all I seem to be doing. Losing weight. But I am fine with that. Because it’s important for me to look good," said Sonakshi, 23.
After playing the demure village girl in ‘Dabangg’, Sonakshi will get into serious cool mode for ‘Race 2’.
"Bipasha Basu was presented in a very striking way in Race. We’ve to make sure Sonakshi is presented similarly in the sequel," said producer Ramesh Taurani.
But before ‘Race 2’, there is Shirish Kunder’s ‘Joker’.
Sonakshi didn’t have much dancing to do in ‘Dabangg’ and was looking forward to her own slice of Farah Khan’s sizzle in ‘Joker’.
But that’s not going to happen. Farah and Shrish have informed her that her character gets no chance to dance in their film.
"I requested Farah to please, please make me dance in her husband’s film. But my character doesn’t have any dance-able opportunities. Sad. We’ll have to wait for another occasion."
Perhaps ‘Race 2’ will provide her with a chance to sizzle in a song and a chance for some serious action.
"Yes," Sonakshi says excitedly, "It’s a very guns-and-gadgets subject. And I’m looking forward to doing my own dancing."(IANS)
