Sharp and worldly-wise as she is, Sonakshi Sinha is nonetheless caught in a strange dilemma. She has been offered a tri-lingual Hindi, Tamil Telugu film opposite Kamal Haasan who is almost her father’s age.
While Shatrughan Sinha has no objections to the unorthodox pairing, Sonakshi is not sure. “I’ve got the offer. But I’m yet to hear the narration,” she says cautiously, buying time to wriggle out of what looks like a hugely awkward situation.
It’s not just Salman Khan. The 40-plus bracket of the distinguished male gaze has fallen on the lovely Sonakshi Sinha from all walks of life. After Salman in Dabangg, Akshay Kumar in Joker and Shah Rukh Khan who’s enormously keen to be paired on screen with the Sinha heiress (apparently they’re coming together in Yash Chopra’s next), we now hear of Kamal Haasan showing a keen interest in being paired with Sonakshi in a film to be directed in three languages Tamil Telugu and Hindi by the Tamil maverick Selvaraghavan.
