The bad guy has to entertain: Sonu Sood

After his villainous act in a recent Prabhu Deva film, actor Sonu Sood is all set to dub for the lead character in the Hindi version of an upcoming Hollywood film based on Greek mythology. CS caught up with the actor for a chat.

Love for action
I am a huge fan of Hollywood action films. They have a great connection with kids. My favourites in this genre are The Avengers, Thor and The Incredible Hulk. I love the larger-than-life feel of their main protagonists. I am trying to match my voice with the character in the best possible manner.

Bonding with the boys
Working on Farah’s (Farah Khan) film is a fun experience. I know Abhishek (Abhishek Bachchan) since the time I did Yuva. We share a great rapport. Shah Rukh Khan is the most humble superstar I have come across. Working with these two is likea party in itself.

Baddie on the block
I feel that the villains have become a lot more entertaining than they were in the yesteryears. The bad man of today sings, dances and entertains. He also gets drunk and acts silly at times. I feel it's fine as long as it makes people smile.

On a different note
I would love to an experimental film if something exciting comes across. There’s a huge audience for new wave films in the country and I like watching such films too.

Production plans
Well, I am not focusing on production right now. My concentration is only on Farah’s film. I hope to start work on it by next year.
