Sinha to play action heroine

Although the majority of her films have done well, Sonakshi Sinha has always been seen playing the good ‘desi’ girl, and apart from doing an item song with choreographer-turned-filmmaker Prabhu Deva, audiences have yet to see her doing something different.Well now it seems everyone is soon to be in for a treat, as Sinha will be seen doing some mighty action stunts in Prabhu’s next venture, ‘Namak’.

Prabhu��and Sinha’s friendship��blossomed on the sets of ‘Rowdy Rathore’ (2012) and apparently when shooting for the song Go Go��Govinda��from ‘OMG! Oh My God’,��Prabhu felt that the action heroine part would be perfect for Sinha. “Prabhu mentioned to Sonakshi that watching her agile dance steps he was sure she would make a terrific action heroine. He told her about the girl in��Namak��who doesn’t just stand behind the hero biting her lips and wringing her hands, but actually has her own action plan. Sonakshi was immediately game,” Bollywood Hungama��reported a source revealing.

Sinha will be seen sharing the screen with Shahid Kapoor, and apparently��Prabhu wants the pair to train together, “He wants his lead pair to excel in the martial arts. But he doesn’t want them to learn their stunts separately. Their action scenes should look perfectly co-ordinated on screen. For that Shahid and Sonakshi have to make the time get into the action mode as a couple”.

As Sinha will debut as an action heroine on screen,��Prabhu will also be making a different debut behind the screen, as the source explains, “He is scripting��Namak. This would be his first effort at screenplay writing. So far he has only directed films written by others. He felt it was about time he created the characters himself.”
