When Sonakshi Sinha expressed her desire to sing, Vishal Dadlani promised her a song in her upcoming film 'Akira'. This happened at the launch of singing reality show Indian Idol Junior. The music director said, “She is a good singer. We are doing a film titled 'Akira' where Sonakshi is the 'hero'. I promise you that she is going to sing in that film”.
The pretty actress who came on the board as a judge of the show, told that she was always inclined towards singing and wanted to polish her skills, but the desire stagnated. “My music teacher taught me Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, but did not return after that and that is where my desire to sing stagnated”, said Sonakshi.
She also revealed that she wanted to sing Sawaar Loon in 'Lootera'. “I love the song Sawaar Loon and would have definitely sung it for myself”, said the actress. That is when Vishal made the promise to her.
'Akira', which is touted to be an official remake of the Tamil sleeper hit 'Mounaguru', will have Sonakshi performing some high-octane action sequences.
