Bollywood star Sonakshi Sinha says it was exciting to share screen space with her Dabangg co-star Salman Khan once again for a song in her forthcoming movie Welcome To New York.
Sonakshi and Salman have recreated their magic in the film’s song Nain Phisal Gaye, which was shot in New York.
“It was really exciting to be reuniting with Salman for our third film together after Dabangg and Dabangg 2. We shot the song entirely in New York. It was nostalgic in many ways. The romantic, melodious song has been filmed beautifully,” Sonakshi said in a statement.
The track has music by Sajid-Wajid and lyrics by Kaunsar Munir.
Director Chakri Toleti said: “It was an absolute delight to shoot this song. Salman and Sonakshi have such great on-screen chemistry.”
Produced by Pooja Films and Wiz Films, Welcome To New York is a comedy about two youngsters who land in New York and go through a series of hilarious episodes.
Releasing on February 23, it features Karan Johar in a double role, Diljit Dosanjh, Riteish Deshmukh, Boman Irani and Lara Dutta, apart from Sonakshi.
Sonakshi Sinha says having a celebrity status gives her a voice which she can use to make a difference. Sonakshi on Wednesday took to Twitter and shared a link of an advertisement from Visa.
“I am a part of the Hindi film industry, and being an actor gives me a voice and the means to make a difference. I wish for every woman in India to have a voice, no matter what walk of life she is in. How do you Re-imagine India,” Sonakshi captioned the video.
On the acting front, Sonakshi, who was last seen on-screen in Ittefaq featuring Sidharth Malhotra, will next be seen in the second instalment of the 2016 film Happy Bhag Jayegi.
