What do you expect when actors Sonakshi Sinha and Ajay Devgn come to town — well, loads of fun, masti and of course, action! That’s exactly what happened when the duo met the ­winners of the HT City Stars in The City contest at HT House on Wednesday evening over a free-wheeling chat with Sonal Kalra, national ­editor, entertainment & ­lifestyle, Hindustan Times.
Sona and Ajay not only floored the fans with their witty answers but went all out to teach some dance moves from their upcoming release Action Jackson to a bunch of Fever 104 RJs (read pranksters), who had come in the garb of cops! Here are glimpses and excerpts from the event.
The film’s promos have a very Rajinikanth-style look. Or is it actually Prabhudheva style?
I think for the first time, we’ve attempted this so-called Rajinikanth style. It is actually like Samurai action.
Is Ajay quiet on sets, too?
Sonakshi: No, he looks quiet. He gives a strong and silent vibe but he is very chilled out. He cracks jokes on the sets.
If you were granted three ­wishes, what would they be?
Sonakshi: I want my next three films to be super hits (laughs as the crowd cheers).
What is the secret behind your beautiful skin?
Sonakshi: I think it is just my mom’s good genes.
Ajay, in the song, ­Gangster Baby, there’s a sequence where you are seen kicking a girl! What is that all about?
Ajay: She is a negative character. And once you watch the film, you’ll ­understand the context of it all.
There’s often a debate if women have much to do in action films. What’s your take, Sonakshi?
Sonakshi: Well, I look at the script... it is more instinctive. I’ve always liked the genre of action-comedy and romance-action drama kind of films.
Ajay, we’ve heard that you’re directing a movie. Also, what’s the progress with the one you’re producing that will star (your wife) Kajol?
Ajay: My directorial is called Shibhai, and it is an emotional action-drama. Most of the cast is from Hollywood. As for the film with Kajol, well, we’re ­working on the script. It will start by May or June, next year. (Compiled by Umar Dewani)
