Following the success of Rowdy Rathore, Dabangg girl Sonakshi Sinha is hot property in Bollywood. TWF correspondent Sreya Basu speaks to the actor in Mumbai on her latest projects, including the Akshay Kumar starrer, Joker.
Your debut film Dabangg was released in 2010. Your second film Rowdy Rathore was released after two years (in 2012). Wasn't the gap too long?
I was shooting for all my films within this time period. I was not away but definitely was wanting to see myself on the big screen again.
Your role didn't require dancing in Dabangg. But now you have literally become a dancing star.
Yeah, now I prefer films where I can go mad with dancing and acting like what you see in Rowdy Rathore. All thanks to Prabhu Deva (the choreographer and director of Rowdy Rathore). I am sure it will help me a lot in my future projects. In Joker also I have scenes and dance numbers where I got to show my crazy side.
