Not many heroines would speak about the romantic sequences they starred opposite superstar Rajinikanth sheerly for the latter’s stature as the indisputable superstar of Tamil films. However, Sonakshi being Sonakshi, has spoken about her romantic moments with Rajini opposite whom she makes her Kollywood debut as heroine in the upcoming film Lingaa.
Rule-breaker Sonakshi has chosen to swim against the tide in Bollywood by retaining a curvaceous and voluptuous body and not giving in to the temptation of becoming skinny like the Deepika Padukones and the Kareena Kapoors. Sonakshi also happens to be the daughter of Shatrughan Sinha, a close friend of Rajini for many years. She spoke in detail about her experience in starring in Lingaa.
“I couldn’t differentiate between ‘old Tamil’ and the Tamil language spoken now. I’m getting many offers to star in Tamil films but haven’t been responding to them as I have quite a few films lined up in Bollywood for the next 2-3 years. I loved the script of Lingaa and when I was told that I was to make my Kollywood debut opposite superstar Rajini, I immediately gave my consent to star in the film.
“Not many heroines get to make their debut in films opposite Rajini. I feel I’m lucky enough to have achieved this feat. I learnt many things from him,” says Sonakshi and adds that “Romancing Rajini was not only easy but was also lot of fun. Rajini is very down-to-earth and is as punctual as anyone can ever get. He used to arrive on sets quite early and leave after everyone has left!”
