Bullet Raja, directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, is set around Uttar Pradesh-based mafia. The shooting of the movie has already begun, but Sonakshi will join the crew in February 2013. "I believe they have already started shooting the film. I was busy shooting for Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai 2 and Dabangg 2, so I will join the crew of Bullet Raja in February," she said. Sonakshi isn't sure where her parts will be shot, but says she might have to travel to Uttar Pradesh.
The actress, who made her Bollywood debut with Dabangg in 2010, says she is happy with the roles she has received. She says, "Luckily I am doing some good films, and I am fortunate to be part of 'Lootera', which has been a tough role and different," she said. In Vikramaditya Motwane's Lootera, Sonakshi features opposite Ranveer Singh.
