Shatrughan happy at daughter Sonakshi’s pairing with Rajini – Bollywood News

Bollywood actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha, nick-named ‘Shotgun’, has said that it is indeed a matter of pride for him that his daughter Sonakshi Sinha is pairing up opposite superstar Rajinikanth in his next Tamil film after Kochaadaiiyaan.

Few are aware that Shatrughan and Rajini have been close friends for the past three decades and had even starred together in Asli Naqli. In fact, Rajini had aped Shotgun’s style mannerisms and developed his own style in his early days and went on to become the country’s ‘No.1’ superstar. Shotgun was asked about her daughter pairing up opposite his friend Rajinikanth.

Sonakshi has not only gone on record saying that she considered it as a ‘privilege’ to be making her Kollywood debut opposite a legend like ‘Rajini Sir’ but has also given bulk call-sheet dates to K.S. Ravikumar, who would be directing the film. It may be noted that Sonakshi was first signed up by Kamal Haasan to star in his Vishwaroopam but she later opted out of it citing call-sheet problems.

“It’s not a big deal, you know…it has happened in Indian cinema. I’m sure Sonakshi is only too happy to star opposite Rajini….in fact, who won’t be happy to do so? In the past, Rajini had starred opposite heroines who were younger to him by 2-3 decades. I’m told that changes in screenplay have been made in order to ensure that the yawning gap in ages between Rajini and Sonakshi (26 years) is not revealed,” said Shatrughan
