‘I love my Bengali avatar in Bullett Raja’
Actress Sonakshi Sinha, who will be again seen as a Bengali girl in her upcoming film Bullett Raja after Lootera, says she loves Bengal’s traditional attire and folk dance.
Sonakshi has left no stone unturned to get into the skin of her character in the Tigmanshu Dhulia directed film. ‘This is for the second time I am playing a Bengali girl. I have played a Bengali in Lootera, but that was drastically different, I was a 1950 Bengali girl, who is a Zamindar’s daughter.
In Bullett Raja, I am playing a contemporary Bengali girl. I loved my look for the Bengali avatar,’ Sonakshi said. ‘It gave me a very traditional feel. I wish the sequence we shot in that costume was a little longer, because I did not want to get out of it,’ she said.
The 26-year-old will be seen in the quintessential red bordered saree, along with big red bindi, gajra and alta on her hands. ‘I absolutely loved donning this look...There is a certain grace to it. Once I was in it everyone was shocked at how Bengali I looked,’ Sonakshi added. She will be seen performing the Bengali folk dance ‘Jhumur’.
‘Its a feminine and beautiful dance form,’ she said. Releasing on 29 November, Bullett Raja is about a fictional mafia based in Uttar Pradesh starring Saif Ali Khan, Sonakshi, Jimmy Shergill, Vidyut Jamwal, Gulshan Grover, Raj Babbar and Chunky Pandey.
