Does Sonakshi Sinha have more screen time than Anushka Shetty in Rajinikanth’s Lingaa?

The Bollywood bombshell is really excited about her Tamil debut opposite superstar Rajinikanth

Rajinikanth may be a South Indian superstar, but his craze is widespread across the world. Keeping in mind the extreme popularity of Thalaiva, the makers have decided to dub his upcoming flick Lingaa in Hindi and Telugu. For Bollywood movie-goers, if Rajinikanth is not enough to warrant a visit to the theatres, the presence of B-town hottie Sonakshi Sinha is bound to benefit Lingaa big time.

Talking about Rajini, an excited Sona said,” It is a great feeling to be working with Rajini sir… he has worked with my dad and he had told me, ‘I had worked with your dad and now working with Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter feels nice’. He made me feel very comfortable while shooting. I am looking forward to Lingaa’s release.”

Though the trailer hints that Sonakshi Sinha might be playing second fiddle to established South Indian star Anushka Shetty, a little birdie tells us that Sona has surprisingly more screen time than Anushka in the film. When Sonakshi was asked about this, she refused to spill the beans, but said,” The film is a period drama and showcases two eras… Working with Rajini sir has been a great learning experience and an addition to my professional graph. For more details you will need to watch the film.”

Like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, can Sonakshi make it big in Tamil cinema? Answer lies ahead on December 12.

Watching a film together doesn’t mean you’re dating: Sonakshi Sinha

Mumbai: Actress Sonakshi Sinha, who has been linked romantically to her 'Tevar' co-star Arjun Kapoor, says if they work together and watch films together, it doesn't mean they're in a relationship.

Responding to the dating rumours, Sonakshi said: "I don't react to these rumours. You should ask people who write about it. If we work together and if we watch a film together, it doesn't mean you are in a relationship."

Meanwhile, the actress is also happy that she got an opportunity to share screen space with megastar Rajinikanth in southern film "Lingaa".

Talking about the film, she said: "This film is in two parts -- one is present day and the other one is set in 1940. The story is well written and more than a romantic interest, my character is a supporter who encourages him (Rajinikanth). So it was easier for me. I am extremely happy to work with Rajini sir."
