The Khiladi has teamed up with her in films like Joker, Rowdy Rathore, Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Dobara and the upcoming film, Holiday. Akki, who considers Sona as his lucky charm, feels she was brilliant in the film.
Though Lootera was critically-acclaimed, it did not get any nominations at most of the award shows and Sona had vented her ire on social media.
