"I personally feel Arbaaz is so well versed with his work that he should have turned director a long time back. I didn't feel for a minute that he is directing for the first time. He is an all-rounder. He knows his work so well I am thankful to be working with him again," Sonakshi told IANS.
Arbaaz turned producer with 2010 film "Dabangg", which turned out to be a blockbuster. Now with "Dabangg 2", he decided to take on the additional responsibility of directing it too.
Sonakshi assures that the sequel, which has Salman Khan as corrupt cop Chulbul Pandey once again, will be more entertaining than the original movie.
"I would say it was great working with the 'Dabangg' team again. It's always fun to work with Salman Khan. I am very excited for 'Dabangg 2', which is scheduled for a Christmas release. I'm sure it will be much more entertaining than 'Dabangg'," said the 25-year-old.
Sonakshi, daughter of veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha, has so far worked with A-list actors like Salman and Akshay Kumar. In her latest release "Son of Sardar", she is seen with Ajay Devgn. Sonakshi says she considers herself lucky.
"I consider myself lucky and fortunate to work with such wonderful co-stars in all my films. For me, more than anything else, the content of the film matters and I have been lucky with that as well," she added.
