Sonakshi Sinha will be seen as a Bengali girl in her upcoming flick Bullett Raja after Lootera. She admits that she loves the Bengali traditions and attire and folk dance. Sonakshi has been a true professional and has done everything to get deep into the character in this Tigmanshu Dhulia’s directorial.
“This is for the second time I am playing a Bengali girl. I have played a Bengali in ‘Lootera’, but that was drastically different, I was a 1950 Bengali girl, who is a Zamindar’s daughter. In ‘Bullett Raja’, I am playing a contemporary Bengali girl. I loved my look for the Bengali avatar,” Sonakshi said.
“It gave me a very traditional feel. I wish the sequence we shot in that costume was a little longer, because I did not want to get out of it,” she said
The actress will be seen in the quintessential red bordered saree with a big red bindi, gajra and alta on her hands!
“I absolutely loved donning this look… There is a certain grace to it. Once I was in it everyone was shocked at how Bengali I looked,” Sonakshi added.
She will be seen performing the Bengali folk dance ‘Jhumur’.
“Its a feminine and beautiful dance form,” she said.
Releasing on November 29, ‘Bullett Raja’ is about a fictional mafia based in Uttar Pradesh starring Saif Ali Khan, Sonakshi, Jimmy Shergill, Vidyut Jamwal, Gulshan Grover, Raj Babbar and Chunky Pandey.
