SONAKSHI IN NEWS
The swank room at a popular hotel in the city was so quiet that one wouldn't have believed that it had a celebrity staying there. No bouncers staring at you, no managers hurrying you up...it was just normal. Entering the room was quite simple, as if you were there to meet a friend of yours. As we stepped inside, the charming Sonakshi Sinha quietly walked in. Carrying off a denim-on-denim look in style, the gorgeous actress sits comfortably, munching on a piece of cake, and begins, "I guess it has been nearly a year-and-a-half since I came to Chennai." Sonakshi Sinha was in the city for an event recently and she recalled that the last time she came to Chennai was for Lingaa's audio launch.
“I loved exploring the city when I was really young, but I don't have much memories of it," she says ruefully. Though she got to make her Kollywood debut with Rajnikanth, the film didn't do well at the Box Office. "I don't have any regrets about it -I still think it was the perfect launch for me in the south. I got to work with some amazing people and it was such a big production. More than the box office performance, it was the experience that mattered to me most. An opportunity to play the lead opposite Rajini sir in the first film is a rarity. Also, the feedback on my role and performance were really appreciated. Even today, so many people ask me when am I doing my second Tamil film," she says.
Radius Developers Presents Hungama Bollywood Music Project, touted as Asia's Largest Bollywood Music Festival, is getting bigger and better with each passing day! While it is on the way to create a milestone by bringing together music icons like Arijit Singh, Amit Trivedi, Papon, Badshah, Rekha Bharadwaj, Shalmali Kholgade, Sachin-Jigar, Shefali Alvares, Nakash Aziz, Divya Kumar and Mohammed Irfan on a single platform for the first time in the history of Bollywood, there is yet another addition to the music fest. Yes, we have our very own ‘Dabangg’ Sonakshi Sinha, who lately packed a punch in AKIRA, is now prepping up to sing live at the coveted and the biggest music festival ‘Bollywood Music Project’ (BMP). She may have sung live at an awards ceremony in the past, but this would be the first time when Sona will be seen in a rock star avatar and performing live before a packed audience for 40-minutes on the stage. The actress will be crooning several chartbusters including her 2015 debut single ‘Ishqholic’, ‘Joganiyan’ from TEVAR, Rajj Rajj Ke from AKIRA. Not only this, but Sonakshi would also sing a couple of songs from her personal favourite list. Conceptualized by Event Capital & TM Talent Management, the two day cultural extravaganza will have something in store for all fans from music to adventure sports to flea markets laden with gourmet . The event will be a first of its kind, multi-stage, multi-genre festival that will be conducted at Jio Garden, BKC onSeptember 30 and October 1 with an expected audience of over 30,000 fans over two days.
Akira is your standard A. R. Murgadoss movie featuring a kickass hero, a dubious villain and a screenplay that moves faster than a pirated Salman Khan DVD. The only twist being that instead of starring a Salman or Akshay or John, it stars none other than Mrs. Dabangg Sonakshi Sinha herself. Taking a leaf out of her daddy’s book, Sona throws punches and kicks all around the place and spouts smartass dialogues like nobody’s business. Anurag Kashyap channelizes his anger against the censor board into his on-screen character in this film who constantly appears greatly pissed with the world. The plot however is standard over-the-top Bollywood fare but the whole thing feels quite refreshing thanks to Sona’s presence even though she does have inconsistent levels of intensity, at times in the trailer she almost seems on the verge of giggling as she threatens goons. Add Konkona Sen Sharma to the mix and you have quite a potent film on your hands. Watch the trailer and sound off your thoughts in the comments section below.
Everyone has seen Sonakshi Sinha give a tough competition with her dancing skills and she has reached the A – list actors group with her power packed performances in every film she has chosen. But like every girl she had a talent which maybe no one ever came across. It was T-Series’ Bhushan Kumar who once heard her discovered her hidden talent of singing. Bhushan Kumar who has gotten back the era of music videos (singles) was liked Sonakshi’s command on tunes and decided that they had to work together. This was a seed that reaped to their single ‘Ishqoholic’ which Sonakshi has already recorded. The song that is more hip hop and very youth friendly is composed by Meet Bros. while Kumaar has written the lyrics. Bhushan Kumar who is glad to be the one to making Sonakshi’s debut in singing industry says, “Sonakshi has a beautiful voice and the song has turned out to be very likeable and easy to hum. I am so glad we got a chance to work on something which binds the world together – music. ‘Ishqoholic will make her fans see the unseen unheard side of her and cherry on the top is they will hear her rap too. The song will welcome Sonakshi to the music world easily.” An excited Sonakshi says, “The video for the song will be shot later this month, by Gifty whom I have worked with on the Desi Kalakaar number along with Yo Yo Honey Singh.” Tags: Sonakshi Sinha
