‘Sonakshi will look good in western clothes’ – Sajid Khan

SonakshiFilmmaker Sajid Khan seems to be all praise for actress Sonakshi Sinha who will be seen doing a peppy dance number “Thank God It’s Friday” in his upcoming film “Himmatwala”. The director said he would like to rope her in one of his future films as well.

“I nurtured a desire to work with Sonakshi after I saw her in ‘Dabangg’. You will see Sonakshi in one of my future films as well. I am very fond of that girl,” Khan told IANS in a group interview.

Sonakshi has been donning a desi avatar in her previous films like “Dabangg” and “Rowdy Rathore”. Khan wanted to break this image through his song.

“A lot has been said about her not being modern and that she can only look nice in Indian clothes. I wanted to break this image that she doesn’t look nice in western outfits,” he said.

Talking about the outfits used in the song, Khan said that he wanted clothes from that era.

“The Western outfits over here are retro. I said I wanted outfits from that era,” he said.

Sonakshi has two looks in the song. The first one has been inspired from Parveen Babi’s look in “Shaan” and the second one is similar to Sridevi from “Chaalbaaz”.

Directed by Sajid Khan, “Himmatwala” stars Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah and is all set to release on March 29.



  • Sajid should direct sister Farah alongside Sonakshi in his next. Film could be on the theme of an innocent urban girls aspirations of obtaining a size zero figure so that she can become a model. Both Sonakshi and Farah will portray the roles of the leading lady in different phases of her journey, so Sonakshi will play the role during the phase of ‘before’ and Farah will play the role in the phase of ‘way before’ all that weight lost…! Icing on the cake would be Alia Bhatt, she will be the end result of all that dieting and exercising. :-)

  • What crap. She doesn’t look good even a lil bit in that song. She must loose at least 10 kilos to look good in western clothes.
