Mumbai: Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha, who has done only masala films till date barring ‘Lootera’, has now decided to take the more sober route.
Sonakshi Sinha will now be playing the eminent author-poet Amrita Pritam in the biopic to be directed by debutante director Jasmeet Reen. The young actress, whose last release Action Jackson was a flop at the box office, is all set to take a serious shot at an intense and real performance.
A source very close to the actress reveals, “Though no formal announcement has been made, Sonakshi Sinha is playing Amrita Pritam. She is very excited about the challenge of playing her first real-life character.”
This won’t be Sonakshi‘s first realistic character. She earlier did Vikramaditya Motwane’s Lootera and was appreciated by the critics and fans alike.
Says the source, “There are many reasons why Sonakshi Sinha does these commercial films. Firstly, she enjoys them. And secondly, she can’t say no to friends who want her in their films. But now she’s determined to try her hand at something more serious.”
