She may be gyrating to the beats of Go Go Govinda for OMG Oh My God! but for the films where she features as the leading lady, Sonakshi Sinha is ironically finding other heroines stepping in as item girls. With Kareena Kapoor almost finalised as the newest ‘Munni’ for Dabangg 2, Sonakshi would have to wait before a director decides to use her services for an item song.
“This is rather strange but then true”, comments an observer, “In Dabangg it was Malaika Arora for Munni Badnaam. Rowdy Rathore had the trio of Mumaith Khan, Maryam Zakaria and Shakti Mohan for Pritam Pyaare. Chitrangda Singh is going Kaafirana for Joker and now Kareena Kapoor is the chosen one for Dabangg 2.”
Though one waits to see if Sonakshi Sinha gets some special attention for Son Of Sardaar and Lootera, her forthcoming films, one thing is certain that at least in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2 she would definitely have an item number to her name. Reason being that she is said to be reprising the character of yesteryear actress Mandakini there and since the film is being pitched as a biopic, it is expected to be as close to reality as possible.
However Sonakshi Sinha isn’t overtly bothered about such item numbers waiting to fill up her resume and says that she is happy with her romantic and other dance numbers till then.
“It isn’t as if I have been deprived of a dance number”, she smiles, “I did have a lot of fun in Rowdy Rathore. Now Govinda has been special too. As for the lack of a song like Munni Badnaam in Dabangg 2 then well, I am happy with my two-three romantic songs that I have with Salman Khan there. That is good enough for me so no regrets.”
