Actor Sonakshi Sinha is in awe of The Dirty Picture star, Vidya Balan. But as much as she loved the film, the 24-year-old believes she can’t pull off a similar role.
“I think Vidya Balan is a fantastic actor. She is my favourite. The film has done really well. But, I don’t know if I

would be able to do such a role. I have certain inhibitions. I don’t think I have the guts that Vidya has. It takes guts to do a film like that,” she said. The actor will now be seen in the upcoming film, Rowdy Rathore, in which she stars opposite actor Akshay Kumar.
Sonakshi made her debut in 2010 with the film Dabangg, which also starred actor Salman Khan. When asked about her superstar co-stars, the actor, who was in the Capital to attend the asiaSpa India Awards 2011, said, “I consider myself lucky that I’m getting to work with people that I am working with. I’m doing a film with Ranveer (Singh), also one with Imran Khan.
It’s my second year in the industry. My second film is not out yet. I have time.” What about reports that Ranbir Kapoor refused a film with her? “I won’t react to that. I haven’t heard it with my own ears. I don’t believe everything I read in the papers,” she added.
The actor has always maintained that she is single, “My prototype is such that I’m not finding a guy only. He has to be taller than me and really handsome. He should preferably not be an actor as I know how hard it is keeping time commitments,” she concluded.
