Though actor Sonakshi Sinha hit jackpot at the box office with her very first film Dabangg, it was not until the special item number with actor-director Prabhudheva Go Govinda in Oh My God! that she revealed her real dancing talent. The ease with which the Sinha babe matched stepped with the ace dancer in the song took everyone by surprise.
So far the actor has not really showcased her dancing skills in any of her films as a solo, even though she has danced with the heroes. So, the unitwallahs were in for more surprise on the sets of Dabangg 2, when she shared that she is even pretty well-versed with classical dance forms like Kathakali and Bharat Natyam!
They reveal that this aspect of her dancing came to light while she was shooting for the song Dagabaaz Re from the Salman Khan starrer. A unit member reveals that they were shooting for a sequence in the song that features some Kathakali dancers.
“When Sonakshi came to know about it, she got really excited and revealed that she has always been very interested in the dance form. She requested the dancers to teach her a few steps before showing them the steps she already knows. Even the dancers were amazed that she knew her own steps so well and also at the speed at which she picked up the new steps. It was then that she told them that she knows a little bit of both Bharat Natyam and Kathakali,” says the insider.
“Even on the sets, she is very keen to learn new things all the time and has no qualms in going and seeking professional help too,” adds the unit source. “What makes it fun to work with her is that despite her having had so many hits in such a short span of time, and coming from an illustrious film family, she has absolutely no airs on the sets. That makes her an instant hit with the entire crew,” shares another crew member from the sets.
