Filmmaker Sajid Khan seems to be all praise for actress Sonakshi Sinha, who will be seen doing a peppy dance number titled Thank God It's Friday in his upcoming film Himmatwala. The director said he would like to rope her in one of his future films as well.
"I nurtured a desire to work with Sonakshi after I saw her in Dabangg. You will see Sonakshi in one of my future films as well. I am very fond of that girl," said Khan.
Sonakshi has donned a desi avatar in her previous films Dabangg and Rowdy Rathore. Khan wanted to break this image through his song.
"A lot has been said about her not being modern and that she can only look nice in Indian clothes. I wanted to break this image that she doesn't look nice in western outfits," he said.
Talking about the outfits used in the song, Khan said that he wanted clothes from that era.
"The Western outfits over here are retro. I said I wanted outfits from that era," he said.
Sonakshi has two looks in the song. The first one has been inspired from Parveen Babi's look in Shaan and the second one is similar to Sridevi from Chaalbaaz.
Directed by Sajid Khan, Himmatwala stars Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah and is all set to release on March 29.
