The actress’ fondness for older heroes has cost her dearly
It looks like Sonakshi Sinha has to learn the art of diplomacy. Riding high on films with Salman, Akshay and Ajay, she stated proudly that she was more comfortable working with older men than men her own age. But it seems that her statement has gone against her as younger heroes like Ranbir and Shahid are not keen to star with her since they feel she looks too old for them!
Currently, she has only two films with stars her age including ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2’ with Imran Khan and ‘Lootera’ with Ranveer Singh. So she’s singing a different tune and now wants to work with Ranbir! But a friend of Ranbir says, “I think he feels that she’d look way older than him on screen.” Apparently, he also turned down a project offered to him with Sonakshi in mind.
Incidentally, Sonakshi opted out of ‘Vettai’ with Shahid because he apparently said no to a Karan Johar film with her! Moreover he too had reservations that she would look older to him.
Sources say now she regrets turning down the coveted ‘Vettai’. And in a bid to make up, a Sonakshi spokesperson is putting out: “Sonakshi would love to work with Ranbir and Shahid. They’re closer to her age.”
But the question is – do the actors think so too?
