Sonakshi Sinha to play a Bengali Woman in Bullett Raja

This Bollywood beauty, Sonakshi Sinha has always charmed the audiences with her simplicity and will continue doing so with Bullett Raja, to woo her fans. This time, she will be seen in never seen before avatar. Sonakshi will be seen as a bong beauty.


For her role in the film, Sonakshi has left no stone unturned and is going all out. She will be seen performing a Bengali folk dance called ‘Jhumur dance’. This is typical Bengali dance and is practiced all over West Bengal.


Sonakshi will be seen as a true Bengali woman as she is wearing the quintessential red bordered saree, along with big red bindi on her forehead, gajrah in her hair and alta on her hands. When asked about the look Sonakshi said, “This is for the second time; I am playing a Bengali girl. I have played a Bengali in Lootera, but that was drastically different, I was a 1950 Bengali Girl, who is a Zamindar's daughter. In Bullett Raja, I am playing a contemporary Bengali girl. I loved my look for the Bengali avatar. It gave me a very traditional feel. I wish the sequence we shot in that costume was a little longer, because I did not want to get out of it.”


And about the traditional dance, she added, “I absolutely loved donning this look; there is a certain grace to it. Once I was in it everyone was shocked at how bengali I looked. The jhumur is a beautiful feminine traditional dance, and Brinda mam being so good at what she does taught me really well!”


Releasing on 29 November, Bullett Raja is premised on fictional mafia based in Uttar Pradesh starring Saif Ali Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Jimmy Shergill, Vidyut Jamwal, Gulshan Grover, Raj Babbar and Chunky Pandey. Produced by Tigmanshu Dhulia, Nitin Tej Ahuja, Rahul Mitra; and directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia as well.
