Sonakshi Sinha, who is debuting in Telugu with Mahesh Babu's film Shivam, is now turning Meenakshi in Tollywood. Wait!!! She is not changing her name in Telugu film industry. But the name of her character in her first Telugu movie is Meenakshi. And director Krish says that he has created this role keeping the Dabangg girl in mind and it will be a tailor-made role for her.
Talking to Times of India, Krish revealed that Sonakshi Sinha would play a girl named Meenakshi in his much-hyped next directorial venture Shivam. He says that he was very much impressed with the Bollywood babe's performance in Dabangg. Especially, her big and beautiful eyes impressed him the most.
"I wrote the script a while back, and to be honest, I had Sonakshi in my mind while I was sketching the female lead. The character, Meenakshi, will have big and beautiful eyes. And when I saw her in Dabangg, I was impressed. Her eyes are mighty expressive, and hold a lot of power," TOI quotes Krish as saying.
However, Shivam would be a big budget movie and producer Ashwini Dutt is investing money on it. Sources claim that the film is likely to be a Tamil-Telugu bilingual. If the news turns true then it will be Mahesh Babu's first straight Tamil film. Talking about its shooting, Krish says that the movie will go on floors with later half of this year.
