Sonakshi Sinha who is debuting in a Tamil film Lingaa with Superstar of southern film industry Rajinikanth has impressed him with her acting prowess and quick adaptability. Sonakshi who doesn't understand the language has adapted to the new environment really fast.
She is making her Tamil debut with Rajinikanth-starrer 'Lingaa' and they were both seen shooting in Mysore lately.
"It is Sonakshi's debut in the south and we all are quite fascinated, including Rajinikanth sir, with how she has adapted to the southern movie so quickly," said a source close to the production team.
"Even though it is a completely foreign language for Sonakshi, she has been pretty quick with the shooting and all the scenes are coming out perfect in the first shot itself," the source added.
Sonakshi and Anushka Shetty will be playing the female leads in the film, for which double Oscar-winning composer A.R. Rahman will compose the tunes and it is directed by K.S. Ravikumar.
Sonakshi will be seen next with Akshay Kumar in the film Holiday which is again a remake of a tamil movie Thupakki. Bollywood actors are interested in southern films, especially Tamil off late which becomes super box office hits.
