From her debut movie till now, Sonakshi Sinha has been lucky for her action heros as the movies entered the elite 100 crore club. But don't you think that Sonakshi has been repeating her roles by doing only masala films opposite action heros?
Sonakshi plays the role of a mere glam doll in almost all movies barring Lootera. Be it Salman Khan's Dabangg or Akshay Kumar's Rowdy Rathore or recently released Shahid Kapoor's R... Rajkumar, two common things in all these movies - they belong to action genre and Sonakshi plays the Queen of all these action heros.
Though in the debut movie, Dabangg, Sonakshi had reduced 30 kg weight to prepare for her character of a village girl, she has often been criticised for her size and looks in movies. She even said that she doesn't react when people talk about her weight. Not only this, people even made fun of her broad forehead, but the actress took it in right humour. Recently, she was even criticized for her dressing sense. If you notice, Sonakshi will be seen in red dress in almost all her movies.
No doubt, Dabangg series and Rowdy Rathore were hits, but her recent movies Bullet Raja and R... Rajkumar aren't doing well at the Box Office. Seems like people are not only getting bored with her looks (salwars and saris), but also her repetitive roles!
Salman Khan introduced Sonakshi Sinha through his action movie Dabangg (2010), which was produced by his brother Arbaaz Khan. The film was declared all-time blockbuster and entered elite 100 crore club. Though the movie was exclusively for Salman fans, Sonakshi's looks attracted the audience. She played the role of a village girl Rajjo.
Sonakshi was seen in another action movie, Rowdy Rathore, which also went on to become a superhit. The movie is remarked as Akshay's return to action. Rowdy Ratore starred Akshay Kumar, who played dual role (Shiva/ACP Vikram Rathore) and Sonakshi played the role of Shiva's love interest Paro.
Sonakshi went on to play the same role (Rajjo) in the sequel too. This movie, compared to prequel, didn't not have much scope for Sonakshi's performance. But again, people accepted her as Salman's best pair.
Son Of Sardaar
Son of Sardaar, an action comedy movie, featured Sonakshi opposite Ajay Devgn. Sonakshi played the role of Punjabi Kudi Sukhmeet, with whom Ajay (Jassi) falls in love.
Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again
A gangster film, where Sonakshi was sandwiched between Akshay Kumar and Imran Khan as both fall in love with her. Sonakshi played the role of rising starlet Jasmine. Akshay played the role of a don who helped her, while Imran played the role of Aslam (Akshay's friend).
An action film written and directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, starred Saif Ali Khan opposite Sonakshi Sinha. Saif falls in love with Sonakshi, who plays the role of Bengali girl in the film.
Recently released movie R... Rajkumar had got bad reviews. The movie is again an action film directed by Prabu Deva, where Sonakshi plays action hero Shahid's love interest. The pair was a perfect mismatch. The plot of the story (hero and villain falls for the same girl) resemble's Sonakshi's other movie Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again. R... Rajkumar and Bullet Raja both were released with a week gap.
