Sonakshi jumps into the sea to escape the high temperature, eventually changing the whole concept of a song sequence in her next

Shooting for Dhoka Dhadi turned out to be quite a nuisance for the cast and crew of the upcoming R...Rajkumar. Nobody could be blamed though. Apparently, the sudden rise in temperature made shooting unbearable on a beach in Thailand. And that’s when Sonakshi Sinha’s simple idea saved the day.

In an impromptu moment, the actress got into the ocean suggesting the choreographer Bosco that they should shoot the planned scenes in the water itself. “Though everyone had their reservations initially, Sona insisted that it would make for a great shot thus convincing director Prabhudheva and even co-star Shahid Kapoor to follow suit,” says a unit member.

That’s exactly what they did at Khai Island in Phuket -- the beach where the song sequences were being shot. “We shot some portions of Dhoka Dhadi on the beautiful beaches of Phuket. The thought of sun sand and sea really charged me up at first but as we started shooting, there it was scorching.

Trying to look pretty in a saree in that kind of heat is no easy task so when I couldn’t take it anymore, I just jumped into the water to cool off and asked Bosco to shoot us in there!” sums up the actress.
