Mumbai, June 5 -- Sonu Sood, who has been part of hit films such as Dabangg (2010) and Happy New Year (2014), and has also worked in Tamil and Telugu films, was recently offered a Marathi movie.
Even though he liked the script, Sonu had to turn down the offer since he does not know the language well enough.
"I was offered the role a few days ago, and the makers wanted to start shooting by July. I informed them that I am not well-versed with the language, and would need time to learn it before the shoot began. But since they have already lined up the schedule, and could not delay it, I had to turn down the offer," says the actor.
Although Sonu did not reveal the name of the makers or the film, he did say that it was an action-based project.
"During the narration, I was told that the film will be an action entertainer, and that they would have to start shooting during the monsoon. So, they were not in a position to delay the shoot," adds Sonu.
He says that he always likes learning the languages before signing films in different industries. "I had learnt Tamil and Telugu before working in films from the respective film industries. The Marathi film industry has been producing great content. I did not want to look unprepared," he says.
