Sonakshi Sinha gives her desi image a tapori tadka

Be it her debut film Dabangg or last year's releases that she starred in —Rowdy Rathore, Joker, Son Of Sardaar and Dabangg 2, Sonakshi Sinha has always maintained her desi girl image, but at the 19th Annual Colors Screen Awards, she gave her desi look a tapori twist!

The actress who had the maximum number of hit songs in 2012, danced on Chikni kamar pe (Rowdy Rathore), Rani tu main raja (Son Of Sardaar) and Go go Govinda (OMG: Oh My God!). Though her act had her fans in raptures on the first two numbers, the highlight of her performance was when she showcased her Dabangg side. Wearing ripped jeans and a bright yellow shirt, enhanced with a red gamcha, she danced to Go go Govinda from Akshay Kumar-Paresh Rawal starrer OMG: Oh My God!, which incidentally also won an award for the Best Choreography.

Unable to contain her excitement, during the rehearsals, she even challenged Varun Dhawan to climb the human pyramid and break the dahi-handi before the masses, which he immediately declined!

For the mega do, a circular three-tier prop was erected before the stage. A group of boys surrounded the prop making it look like a three storey human pyramid. Dancing to the signature tunes, Sinha girded up to climb the top. With loudspeakers blaring the perky number, a loud round of applause emanated from the audience — with her mother cheering the loudest, as Sinha broke the handi with a coconut, akin to her item song with co-star Prabhudheva in the film.

Desi numbers called for high octane moves, and Sinha toiled day and night to perfect them, which was clearly visible in her spectacular act.
