But she is open to doing an item number
Sonakshi Sinha admits that she is not bold enough to do an item number, but says she won't mind doing one if presented in a right manner. "I haven't been offered any item number till now. If there is a good song, I am convinced enough and I am presented in a right way, then why not," Sonakshi said at a promotional event for her upcoming film ‘Rowdy Rathore’ in Gurgaon a few days ago.
However, she has done a hot number 'Chammak challo chail chabeeli' in 'Rowdy Rathore' though the actress denies it’s an item song. “It's a very situational song with a wedding as its backdrop," she explained. Sonakshi made her debut as a demure village belle in 'Dabangg' and actioner 'Rowdy Rathore' will see her in a similar desi avatar.
And it seems the actress is in no rush to change her image. "I am not waiting to get a role that will change my desi girl image, but still if I get something, which requires me to be more westernised and my character is good, I won't mind doing it. Right now I am happy representing my own culture," she says.
Directed by Prabhu Deva, the film stars Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead roles and releases today.
