Sonakshi Sinha goes traditional again in Bullett Raja

After playing a Bengali woman in the period drama, Lootera, Sonakshi Sinha will be seen in a similar avatar in her next, Bullett Raja. To look the part, she will be sporting the traditional red-and-white cotton sari, complete with a red bindi and a gajra in her hair. The actor has also learnt a folk dance from the region, called Jhumur, to prepare for her role.

Ask Sonakshi about her character and she says, “This is the second time I am playing a Bengali girl. But my character in Lootera was drastically different; I was playing a girl from the ’50s, who is a zamindar’s daughter. In Bullett Raja, I am playing a contemporary Bengali girl. I loved my look for this role; it has a very
traditional feel.”

Sonakshi adds that her character’s charming look was one of the best things about the role. “I absolutely loved donning this look as there was a certain grace to it. Once I was in the costume, everyone was shocked to see how Bengali I looked. I wish the sequence we shot in that costume was a little longer, because I did not want to get out of it.”

About the traditional Jhumur dance, Sonakshi says, “Jhumur is a beautiful dance which has a feminine quality to it. Brinda ma’am (choreographer), being so good at what she does, taught me really well.”
