Contrary to the buzz that Katrina Kaif or Deepika Padukone would be cast opposite Shahid Kapoor in Prabhudeva’s next action film Namak, we discovered that it is Sonakshi Sinha who will romance B-town’s fave chocolate boy this time
It is difficult to visualise this oddly-matched couple as an onscreen pair, but we have to! We hear that Sonakshi Sinha, with all her notorious circularity, will be seen lagao-ing thumkas with a lean and much-younger looking Shahid Kapoor in Prabhudeva’s next action film, a masala mixture called Namak.While the entire industry had been speculating if Katrina Kaif or Deepika Padukone would be cast opposite Sasha, a little birdie informed us that it is the Dabangg girl who has bagged the role. Sona definitely worked like a lucky charm for the Rowdy Rathore director. So it wasn’t surprising for us to know that Prabhu Sir finally zeroed in on Shotgun’s beloved beti.
Apparently, Namak is based on the drug trade in Madhya Pradesh. Sasha, after Kaminey, will be seen in an action avatar in this one. There’s no doubt in our minds that the Kapoor lad will do total justice to the role, what with his incredibly flexible body, his amazing dance moves and his intense acting. Our only concern is, will Sonakshi complement Shahid’s youthful charm, or will she end up looking like his elder sister, aunty or even mum, much like Vidya Balan who tried to pull off the jodi in Kismat Konnection? Tell us what you think, dear BollywoodLifers!
