New Delhi: Sonakshi Sinha shot to fame with her rustic village belle look in Dabangg, and the actress is still in love with her desi avatar. She says she wouldn’t mind playing a simpleton again.
“Why not? You know, I am an Indian, I am a Hindi film heroine, and I am getting roles. There is no dearth of work and all the roles coming my way have been Indian. I am definitely open to doing western roles but if people see me fit enough to play that Indian heroine, I am absolutely okay with that,” Sonakshi said during the launch of her film Lootera.
Sonakshi, who plays the role of a traditional Bengali woman in Lootera, has a lot of meaty projects in hand like Rowdy Rathore and Joker. However, she is upset about losing out on Race 2, which she had to forgo for Dabangg 2.
“It was unfortunate because I was looking forward to it and I had signed on the film because I had felt it would be great to be a part of that film. But the dates were shifted forward and I couldn’t accommodate the film as Dabangg 2 is starting in March,” she said.
Lootera is a love story set in the 1950s and stars Ranveer Singh opposite Sonakshi and is written and directed by Vikramaditya Motwane of Udaan fame.
