The action star liked her performance in the period drama so much that he said it should have been appreciated with a National Award for it.
Akshay, who has acted with the 26-year-old in movies like “Rowdy Rathore” and “Once Upon Ay Time In Mumbai Dobaara!”, says she was brilliant in “Lootera”.
“It is a pleasure working with Sonakshi. She is wonderful and talented. The last movie of her I saw was ‘Lootera’. I think she was brilliant. She should’ve got a National Award (for it). It’s something wonderful that I saw,” Akshay, who will now be seen with her in the forthcoming film "Holiday - A Soldier Is Never Off Duty", told IANS.
The Vikramaditya Motwane directorial, which also featured Ranveer Singh in the lead, received a mixed response after it hit screens in July last year. It also got a few nominations at this year’s awards.
