Prabhu Deva is on a roll in Bollywood. He is directing his 4th film in Bollywood R…Rajkumar starring Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha. Prabhu, who previously worked with Sonakshi in Rowdy Rathore, said he shares a very comfortable working relationship with her.
When asked about Sonakshi and her skills, Prabhudheva says, “She is doing everything today, right from acting to dancing. She is a ‘no problem’ heroine. She knows what works for the film and reacts very well to a scene. If you ask me, today Sonakshi stands out as one of the most commercial heroines around. She is just excellent as a Bollywood leading lady.”
Sonakshi will be seen with the mannerisms and the air of a Telugu or a Tamil heroine in R…Rajkumar. When asked whether the ‘exaggerated’ expressions are something Prabhudeva taught her, he laughs and says, “I can’t tell if this is exaggerated. All I can say though is that she is doing exactly that in the film which the subject and genre demands. She had totally freed herself in Rowdy Rathore and now in R… Rajkumar also she is absolutely ‘bindaas’. It is the character, story and the scene which is making her do everything on the screen which is required.”
R…Rajkumar releases on 6th December this year.
