[tps_footer]With playing hard core commercial roles in her previous films Son of Sardaar, Rowdy Rathore, Dabbang and Dabbang 2, Sonakshi Sinha is now all set to play a realistic character in a biopic on eminent author-poet Amrita Pritam. The film will be directed by debutante director Jasmeet Reen.
After her film Lootera in which she played a real life inspired character, this film will be her second one on the serious genre. Sonakshi Sinha’s Action Jackson received a very low response from the audience. Apparently, Tevar which will set the stage on January, 9th, 2015, also is a complete Bollywood commercial.
According to sources close to the actress, “Though no formal announcement has been made Sonakshi is playing Amrita Pritam. She is very excited about the challenge of playing her first real-life character.
There are many reasons why Sonakshi Sinha does commercial films. Firstly, she enjoys them. And secondly, she can’t say no to friends who want her in their films. But now she’s determined to try her hand at something more serious”.
Amrita Pritam who is a Punjabi poet and an author, has penned around 100 books with biographies, poems and Punjabi folk songs, however the film will focus on her relationship with a budding lyricist.
All ready to don the non-commercial avatar, Sonakshi Sinha who has always been known as the chubby bubbly face of B-Town, hope this new venture fixes another feather on her hat. Will this movie be a turning point in her career?
