Sonakshi has left no stone unturned to get into the skin of her character in the Tigmanshu Dhulia directed film. "This is for the second time I am playing a Bengali girl. I have played a Bengali in 'Lootera', but that was drastically different, I was a 1950 Bengali girl, who is a Zamindar's daughter.
In 'Bullett Raja', I am playing a contemporary Bengali girl. I loved my look for the Bengali avatar," Sonakshi said. "It gave me a very traditional feel. I wish the sequence we shot in that costume was a little longer, because I did not want to get out of it," she said.
The 26-year-old will be seen in the quintessential red bordered saree, along with big red bindi, gajra and alta on her hands. "I absolutely loved donning this look... There is a certain grace to it.
Once I was in it everyone was shocked at how Bengali I looked," Sonakshi added. She will be seen performing the Bengali folk dance 'Jhumur'. "Its a feminine and beautiful dance form," she said. Releasing on November 29, 'Bullett Raja' is about a fictional mafia based in Uttar Pradesh starring Saif Ali Khan, Sonakshi, Jimmy Shergill, Vidyut Jamwal, Gulshan Grover, Raj Babbar and Chunky Pandey.
