Sonakshi Sinha to do Action Scenes in Upcoming SR Murugadoss Film; Will Train in Martial Arts

Star Indian actress Sonakshi Sinha will be fighting during the upcoming SR Murugadoss film.

Sinha is playing a college girl in the yet-untitled film.

She’s planning on undergoing a 30-day martial arts workshop in preparation of her role. 

“It’s a completely heroine-oriented script with the actress doing the kind of action a hero does. Murugadoss has been telling people that Sonakshi is the ‘hero’ of his film. The action-oriented film will require Sonakshi to undergo an extensive 30-day training in martial arts prior to the shoot. Martial arts experts will be flying down to Mumbai to teach her,” a source close to the Bollywood actress told DNA India.

“She also consulted a few of her friends like Prabhudheva, Akshay Kumar and Shahid Kapoor about the art form. That is why she has been losing a lot of weight – to get a fit and lithe body for the film. While actresses have been known to do lot of action-oriented scenes in films, this will have Sonakshi actually fighting with the villains and fending them off with martial arts techniques.”

The film is slated to come out in November.

The actress is currently completing “Tevar,” which also stars Arjun Kapoor and Ajay Devgn.
