Choreographer Saroj Khan recently praised Sonakshi Sinha’s performance in a classical number for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming film Rowdy Rathore. The dance master even gave the actor “Rs 101 as shagun (blessings).”
As per the unit members, the song, which Sonakshi shot for in Film City last week with Akshay, required lot of complex expressions.
Sonakshi, draped in a heavy sari, is seen dancing at a wedding and teasing the boy (Akshay) as part of the song. But all that praise doesn’t keep Sonakshi from feeling the pressure when it comes to her weight. “I work hard to maintain myself and always try to look better. But I don’t believe in going to an extreme or being stick-thin. Also if I have been accepted for the way I look, why would I do anything to change it? There is pressure from a lot of people, but that’s not what my audience wants. I’m happy with the way I look,” says the Dabangg (2010) girl, who weighed 90 kgs before she signed the Salman Khan-starrer blockbuster. The actor lost 30 kgs before she started shooting for the Abhinav Kashyap film.
