Cinematic icon Rajinikanth, who is working with Sonakshi Sinha for a Tamil film, is said to be impressed with Bollywood actress' acting and quick adaptability.
Sonakshi is making her Tamil debut with Rajinikanth-starrer 'Lingaa' and they were both seen shooting in Mysore lately.
"It is Sonakshi's debut in the south and we all are quite fascinated, including Rajinikanth sir, with how she has adapted to the southern movie so quickly,” said a source close to the production team.
"Even though it is a completely foreign language for Sonakshi, she has been pretty quick with the shooting and all the scenes are coming out perfect in the first shot itself," the source added.
The film is directed by K.S. Ravikumar.
Sonakshi and Anushka Shetty will be playing the female leads in the film, for which double Oscar-winning composer A.R. Rahman will compose the tunes.
