Romancing Superstars

Sonakshi Sinha

At a time when her contemporaries, such as Anushka Sharma and Parineeti Chopra, are stepping out of safe mainstream cinema to experiment with bolder female-oriented films, Sinha seems unfazed about competition and what might be perceived of it. "People might think that I feel left out when I see my contemporaries doing other kinds of films, but I am very happy in the space I am right now. And if I may say so, successful too," she says. "And this trend of female-oriented films has just started; I don't want to do those kind of films just for the sake of it," she adds.

Vikramaditya Motwane's Lootera will be the first film where she will step out of her comfort zone. Here, she will try her hand at off-beat mainstream cinema and that too, opposite another young actor, Ranveer Singh. Her other two films are also opposite younger stars — Imran Khan in Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai 2 and Shahid Kapoor in the recently-signed Prabhudheva film Namak. "Trust me, there is no formula behind this; I do films based on their scripts and whether I can picture myself in it," she says.

However, in Dabangg 2, which releases during Christmas, she will go on to become the colourful Chulbul Pandey's better half, as part of the natural progression of her character Rajjo from part one. "They are married now, and the romance is of a different kind, with things that happen between married couples," she says. This is all she is ready to reveal about it for now.
