Her next release is Ashwni Dhir’s Son of Sardaar (SOS), coming out on Diwali, and she is also shooting for Dabangg 2. But Sonakshi Sinha believes Lootera is her toughest project ever. The movie, which also features Ranveer Singh, is directed by Vikramaditya Motwane of Udaan fame.
"Lootera, in terms of look and character has been my toughest. I hope people like it. Working with Vikramaditya was like going back to school. He is a wonderful director in terms of getting out a performance. Going back to 1950s is not an easy thing to do," she said.

She has consistently been hitting the bullseye at the boxoffice with her out-of-the-box films such as Love Sex Aur Dhoka (2010) and Ragini MMS (2011). In her latest move, producer Ekta Kapoor has decided to join hands with Shaitan (2011) maker Bejoy Nambiar to co-produce a film, which is funnily titled, Kuku Mathur Ki Jhand Ho Gayi.
"It’s a very quirky and fun film on the lines of Khosla Ka Ghosla (2006) and Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! (2008), but it has a soul of it’s own. We are sure fans will be surprised to see such a film from Ekta’s company. When she heard the script for the first time, she just couldn’t stop laughing and she instantly decided to go ahead with it," says an insider close to the film’s development.
