'Rowdy Rathore' is my birthday gift: Sonakshi Sinha

Added by harini on May 03, 2012

After making a very strong debut with ‘Dabangg’, actress Sonakshi Sinha is gearing up for the release of her second movie ‘Rowdy Rathore’.

The movie that was scheduled to be released on June 15 will now be releasing on June 1, just a day before the actress birthday.

“Our movie comes just a day before her birthday and we hope it will do well and make it a great day for Sonakshi,” says Shikha Kapur, senior VP (marketing) of UTV Motion Pictures.

According to an insider the release of the movie before Sonakshi Sinha’s birthday isn’t a mere coincidence but the makers had kept their leading lady’s birthday in their mind.

“Business-wise, the weekend is a coveted one considering it comes right after the end of the Indian Premier League (IPL). But everyone knew it would become special for Sona,” said an insider.

Sonakshi Sinha said that this move makes her feel very special.

“It makes me feel special considering the film comes a day before my birthday. It’s also the first big movie after the IPL. I am looking at it as an advance birthday present,” she said to a daily.

The movie is a remake of Telugu movie ‘Vikramarkudu’ but its being compared with Sonakshi Sinha’s debut movie ‘Dabangg’.

“Comparisons will always be there considering Dabangg is the only film I have done till date. But for me, the only similarity is that both my heroes have worn moustaches,” she said.

When asked if she is doing any heavy action scenes with ‘Khiladi of Bollywood’ Akshay Kumar she said, “No, I don’t have much action to do, except a few stunts in the climax. Otherwise, I am the girl next door.”

The movie directed by Prabhu Deva will release on June 1, 2012.
