MUMBAI: Actor Sonu Sood, who essays the role of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim in "Shootout at Wadala", says doing so was a huge burden for him.

"We talk about power. I remember watching his images in the stadium during cricket matches. In fact, now that you are playing the same character, you feel a heavy burden on your shoulders as you are playing such an important role and it’s such an important film. So, I have to be very right," Sonu at the red carpet of "Shootout at Wadala".

To prepare for his role, Sonu visited those bylanes of Mumbai that are known for underworld activities, but he is not afraid.

"I don’t think it was tough to enter such areas. I remember during my struggling days, I had friends who used to hangout in such places. Even I have been to such places. Now that I am working on this character, I would be more curious to know about it and I hope I get some good inputs."

Sonu will also be seen in "Maximum" in which he plays the role of a young cop. It is releasing April 13.
