Sonakshi was comfortable with action scenes in 'Force 2': John
In the second installment of "Force", an action drama, John and Sonakshi will be seen doing some heavy duty daredevil scenes.
"There was a scene where I and Sonakshi had to jump... and it was just second day of shoot. I was thinking should I tell her we have to jump... I was actually worried thinking what if she calls her dad (Shatrughan Sinha)," John told reporters here at the song launch event of "Force 2".
But the actor was happy to see that Sonakshi was very comfortable in the action scenes.
"She was like OK. Then I felt she was comfortable doing action sequences. It felt great to see her do action," he said.
The 43-year-old actor said he gets impressed when he sees actresses doing action.
"There is not enough action for heroines in films. We usually like to see them dancing most of the time," he said.
The song "Lal Rang" was launched in presence of lead actors John, Sonakshi, Tahir Raj Bhasin, director Abhinay Deo, producer Vipul Shah and Ajit Andhare of Viacom 18 Motion Pictures.
John said it was Abhinay's idea to give the actor's voice-over for the anthem song of "Force 2".
"Lal Rang" salutes India's unsung martyrs and for the first time ever John has lent his voice to a track.
"I had tears in my eyes while singing it. I also had anger while doing the song. It was a voice over but the experience was fantastic," John said.
The film, a sequel to the 2011 hit "Force", is due to release on November 18.
