After the colossal Dabangg, she made her second screen appearance after more than a year. With the money spinner Rowdy Rathore, Sonakshi Sinha is being touted as the industry’s lucky charm. So hot is her popularity that it takes little to get her trending on social networking sites. On the personal front too there’s a lot of bustle. The family has moved into a new home and dad Shatrughan Sinha has just undergone a bypass surgery. So amidst workers who are giving the home the final touches and bouquets of ‘get well soon’ wishes lined-up for her father, we find a corner to catch up…
Q. Tell us more about Dabangg 2.
The set is like home for me. It doesn’t feel much different from Dabangg. Except that Arbaaz Khan is directing now. Something he should have done years ago as he has such a great command over the medium.
Q. There was an unfortunate accident on the set. Were you present that day?
I wasn’t present but luckily everyone was safe. A few people were injured and they were taken to the hospital by the unit. They are fine now.
Q. How different is it working with Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar?
Both treat me like a co-star. With Salman and Arbaaz it was different because I have known them before I joined films. So we have a rapport. After working with Akshay in Joker, it became more fun to work with him in Rowdy Rathore. He’s so jovial. He makes everyone around him laugh. You form your own equation with every co-star you work with.
