Bollywood actor Sonakshi Sinha, who recently wrapped the shooting for Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, was spotted driving a mini truck on the sets of the film directed by Mudassar Ali. Sonakshi joined Diana Penty for the sequel of the 2016 comedy film that also featured Abhay Deol, Jimmy Sheirgill and Ali Fazal.
Earlier, Sonakshi trained in martial arts and did all her fight sequences herself in Akira. Now, for Happy Phirr Bhaag Jayegi, Sonakshi learnt to drive a mini truck herself for a major film sequence.
Talking about how she did it, Sonakshi says, “I do have some practice driving manual cars but this mini truck was no cake walk. It was a very old and heavy vehicle and because it was manual, the steering and gears were extremely tiresome and required a lot of strength to manoeuvre. Since it was a chase sequence, I had to accelerate the speed but with enough skill to guide my course safely on the roads. Having to burn rubber with that massive beast was quite the challenge but when we got it, the feeling was incredible.”
Talking about the scene, an insider from the sets says, “It was a rather crucial scene that was being shot in Kuala Lumpur recently. The scene was a chase sequence for which Sonakshi was required to drive a mini truck as a means for her character to escape. The truck was an old, heavy metal bodied hulk and driving it required a fair bit of familiarity and control with it’s weight and functionality. She was clear from the get go that she didn’t want a double for it and hence she spent a fair bit of time driving the truck and getting used to it. It was not easy as it was an old self geared truck which required some serious strength to push it around.”
Sonakshi tweeted her gratitude after wrapping the shoot for the film and wrote, “And its a film wrap for #HappyPhirrBhagJayegi! Its been an amazing journey with an amazing team!
