The year 2008 has been good for Sonu Sood. After having started the year playing Rajkumar Sujamal in Ashutosh Gowarikar's epic flick Jodhaa Akbar, Sonu went on to play the comical 'King' in Vipul Shah's blockbuster Singh Is Kinng. Now the actor is currently basking in all the appreciation coming his way for his portrayal of Prem in the recently released Ek Vivaah Aisa Bhi.
Sonu, who has slowly but steadily made his mark as a dependable actor, is now looking forward to doing more different and challenging roles. In his next film Dhoondte Reh Jaaoge, Sonu will be playing 11 different characters ranging from SRK's Raj in DDLJ to Big B's Vijay in Deewar. However, this time the tall actor who bears an uncanny resemblance to Big B is seen playing a dwarf in Big B's famous Deewar get up.
On being asked ifit is a spoof on Bachchan's famous character,Sonu says, "No its not a spoof of Mr.Bachchan's character. I play an actor in the film and my director Umesh came up with this wacky idea of me playing a dwarf for one of the characters. It was fun yet challenging playing the role of a dwarf."
Deewar takes a look at the happenings in the film industry and stars Paresh Rawal, Sonu Sood, Kunal Khemu and Soha Ali Khan in lead roles. The film is directed by debutant Umesh Shukla and is slated to release in January 2009.
