Sonakshi performs disco number in 'Himmatwala'
Sonakshi Sinha may have performed a disco song in 'Himmatwala' but in real life she does not go to clubs or disco regularly.
For Sajid Khan's upcoming film 'Himmatwala', Sonakshi has performed a special song - "Thank God Its Friday", a take on the disco culture of the 80s.
"In today's time we say clubs and not disco. I don't like clubbing much. I am a homely body... though I do go to clubs at times," Sonakshi told reporters at the launch of the song.
In the item song, Sonakshi dons a vintage sequin golden dress with matching headgear and her looks bear similarity with Parveen Babi's look in the song - "Pyar Karne Wale" from the film 'Shaan'.
Her another look in the song resembles that of Sridevi's in "Raaste Mein Woh Khada Tha" from 'Chaalbaaz' where she is dressed in tight black pants, jackets, boots and gloves.
"I had seen the videos of these two songs to understand the dancing style. Besides this I did no preparation," Sonakshi said adding, "I have thoroughly enjoyed doing these dance moves."
Director Sajid is also all praise for Sonakshi.
"I must say this is not an item song... its a special song. In the original 'Himmatwala', there was no disco song but we have it as it goes well with the storyline of our film. I think we can't compare Sonakshi with anyone. She is a good actress and a good dancer. I am happy she agreed to do the song," he said.
'Himmatwala' is a remake of Jeetendra-Sridevi starrer of the same name. The remake version, starring Ajay Devgn and south actress Tamannaah Bhatia, is slated for release on March 29.
