Sonakshi in Murugadoss' Woman-Centric Actioner
Filmmaker A.R Murugadoss is basking in the glory of his latest Hindi directorial movie "Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty" these days which has collected over Rs 50 crore worldwide in just three days of its release. But that doesn’t stop him from working in his next projects already. News is that the filmmaker is all set to work with Sonakshi Sinha again in a woman-centric action flick this time which is expected to go on floors in November.
The news was confirmed by none other than Sonakshi herself when she posted on her Twitter page on Tuesday, "It's official! My next is a woman-oriented action film directed by the genius behind Ghajini & Holiday @ARMurugadoss! We start in November.”
This move includes Sonakshi in the league of the few Bollywood actresses including Rani Mukerji and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who have tried their hands on action flicks earlier. After learning boxing for “Holiday”, Sonakshi is said to now be trained in martial arts for her role. Buzz is that the action-oriented drama revolves around Sonakshi’s character and will see her to attend a 30-day workshop prior to the shoot.
Talking about this movie, Murugadoss said in a statement, “I have a great working relationship with the production house and I’m excited to collaborate on a Bollywood project with them. My film with Sonakshi is based on a story which is close to my heart and has a very personal and powerful message for all Indian women.” Moreover, the director also said that Sonakshi’s role will be on the lines of what Angelina Jolie did in ‘Lara Croft’.
Murugadoss is currently busy working on his Tamil actioner "Kaththi", which is slated for a Diwali release this year. The film features superstar Vijay in the lead.
