Sonakshi Sinha has joined the biker girl gang. What seemed like an alien territory for Bollywood leading ladies is now seeing a good influx, what with Sonakshi Sinha driving a bike for ‘Son of Sardaar‘. She was of course anxious if she would be able to pull it off. However when explained that this would be for a limited portion of the film (unlike Katrina Kaif who was required to ride one for a large portion of ‘Zindagi Naa Milegi Dobara‘), she decided to give it a shot.
“She had to learn how to drive a bike and her co-stars came forward for her help as well. She did manage to shoot her scenes well, so much so that it was also decided that there would be bike stunts choreographed as well”, the source continues.
Of course some of the many stunts performed by Sonakshi have cables doing the trick. However when it came to driving on a straight line, and that too with a smile plastered on her face, Sonakshi had to get her act right without looking like a first timer.
Says Sonakshi in an animated tone, “I was soooooo excited when I was told that I had to drive a bike for camera. Even though I have a few scenes with a bike, I wanted them to be perfect. I asked the action guy who helps Ajay (Devgan) with all his stunts to teach me how to ride.”
Apparently the feisty girl didn’t rest till she got it perfect. Of course she was heart broken when she saw Ajay and Sanjay perform far dare devil stunts with bikes, jeeps and even horses involved. However for her own place under the sun, she was happy to be one of the few heroines who could make it all look right while atop a bike.
