I will never join politics: Sonakshi Sinha

Jalandhar: Actress Sonakshi Sinha says she likes discussing politics with her actor-politician father Shatrughan Sinha but has no intent of trying her luck in it.

The 27-year-old 'Rowdy Rathore' star said politics is not her cup of tea and she would like to concentrate on films only.

"I will never join politics. There is no possibility for me to join politics. I am a creative person and I always want to do something creative in my life," Sonakshi told PTI.

The 'Action Jackson' actress, however, said offlate she has started taking interest in political affairs.

"My interest started after Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP government came at the centre. I often talk to my father about this because everyone wants to know what our PM and government are doing and I also have interest in this," she said.

Shatrughan is the sitting MP from Patna Saheb. His daughter was here to attend the inaugural event of Kabaddi World Cup. She even owns a Kabaddi team United Singhs in the World Kabaddi League.

Sonakshi will be next seen in Arjun Kapoor-starrer 'Tevar', which is scheduled for release on January 9, 2015. 


Average business for ‘Action Jackson’ at Box Office

New Delhi: Actor-filmmaker Prabhudheva’s latest directorial “Action Jackson” will touch Rs.20 crore soon -- but trade experts figure the numbers are not overwhelming for the "routine and hackneyed" movie.

Starring Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Yami Gautam and Manasvi Mamgai, the action film hit approximately 3,000 screens Friday.

“It earned Rs.19 crore in two days. It was made on a budget of about Rs.75 crore and considering that, the film should’ve done better. Those who like Prabhudheva kind of films have mostly gone for it, but not everyone,” Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines told reporters.

Prabhudheva is known for making massy films like “R... Rajkumar” and “Rowdy Rathore”.

Trade expert Komal Nahta tweeted: “#ActionJackson is too routine and hackneyed. Meant for masses, not for classes.”

"Sulemani Keeda", an indie comedy, also hit the screens along with the star-packed “Action Jackson”, but it also failed to earn big at the box office.

“#SulemaniKeeda is cute. Meant for people looking for different cinema. Commercial prospects are weak,” Nahta tweeted.

Thadani also has “doubts” about the film’s performance at the box office.

“The collections were negligible. It earned around Rs.25 lakh. It is for select audience,” he added.


Box Office update: Ajay Devgn’s Action Jackson rakes Rs 10.16 crore on opening day!

Despite being panned by the critics, Prabhu Dheva’s masala gangster saga has got a decent opening at box office

After riding high on the success of Singham Returns, filmi punters said Ajay Devgn had dug a grave for himself by starring in a film like Action Jackson. After being panned by the critics left , right and center for being a nonsensical film, no one expected Action Jackson to do well at box office. But surprisingly, the numbers at box office have a different story to tell.

We hear that Ajay Devgn-Sonakshi Sinha-Yami Gautam starrer has got a decent opening at box office minting Rs 10.16 crore at the box office. While Devgn previous flick, Singham Returns raked Rs 31.82 crore at box office, considering the kind of response and word of mouth review we have been receiving, we are surprised that Action Jackson has managed to surpass Rs 10 crore on the opening day. The trade experts believe that the lukewarm opening of Action Jackson is all due to Ajay Devgn’s fan following and the real test of Prabhu Dheva‘s directorial is to make money in the coming days.

Can Action Jackson pull off a Humshakals and make some serious money despite critics bashing it to the pulp? Lets wait and watch.

Sonakshi Sinha and Arjun Kapoor bonded a lot over fitness on Tevar sets!

Here’s the latest goss from the sets of Sanjay Kapoor’s upcoming production venture…

Sonakshi Sinha who is looking super hot had been hitting the gym with her vengeance for her upcoming next, Sanjay Kapoor’s Tevar, where she stars alongside Gen-X heartthrob Arjun Kapoor. Sources attached to the film reveal that the actress went all out to sport her hottest look ever, in the commercial entertainer, and she had been hitting the gym post shooting hours as well.

The Action Jackson star who has worked with the biggest names in Bollywood, this time around is sharing screen space with ‘good friend’ Arjun Kapoor who she has known since her childhood days. What’s more is the fact that the actress had been bonding with Arjun over health and fitness as they discussed their respective workout regimes. Now everyone knows about Arjun’s flab to fab story, and it seems that the Finding Fanny actor is giving his rumoured girlfriend a lot of tips to stay fit and healthy.

Sanjay Kapoor’s Tevar starring Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha is scheduled to release on January 9, 2015. Tevar is the remake of Telugu action film Okkadu and will mark the directorial debut of celebrated ad-filmmaker Amit Sharma.

When Karthik Kumar apologized to North Indians for Prabhu Dheva-Ajay Devgn’s Action Jackson…

Sonakshi Sinha-Yami Gautam-Manaswi Mamgai starrer is garnering a lot o flak from all corners of the India. Here’s something from a southern actor…

Stars have made bad films in the past as well, but it seems Ajay Devgn’s Action Jackson has surpassed all of them. Not only are the audiences and critics panning out the films there are some film actors as well who have openly accused the film. The latest to join the bandwagon is southern hero Karthik Kumar. Karthik has been a good friend of Prabhu Dheva all his life and he took to twitter after watching Ajay Devgn’s latest flick. Wonder what he said?

He tweeted, “On behalf of the nation of #SouthIndia we apologize to our neighbouring friendly #NorthIndia for unleashing #prabhudeva as a director on u.” That definitely seems like a slap on Prabhu Dheva’s face but as the two are good friends it must be all said in good humour. We wonder how Prabhu Dheva would revert back to the same.

Post Action Jackson, Lingaa and Tevar, Sonakshi Sinha to cut down on work in 2015

Here’s the latest gossip from inside the Shotgun household…

Sonakshi Sinha has been having a lot of releases off late. So much so that the actress is feeling bogged down by work. She has been shooting rigourously throughout the past two years with films like Bullett Raja, R…Rajkumar, Holiday, Action Jackson, Lingaa and Tevar coming out back to back.The actress, therefore, has decided to take a well deserving break and go on a vacation for some months. And for the same reason, she hasn’t signed any films after Tevar.

Given her packed schedule, we understand how much hard work the actress would have put in these past months.

Wethinks, it is a great idea to take time off work, Sona. That’ll help you relax and rejuvinate yourself. Also it’ll give you more time to spend with your ‘very close friend’ Arjun Kapoor. We sure will miss you and hope that once you’re back, you’ll come down full throttle with some excellent performances like the one you gave in Lootera.

Meanwhile we would be on the look out for some of your holiday pics (Wink, Wink).
