Many feel she resembles Reena Roy, but Sonakshi has reason to think about the two legends of Indian cinema.
"I think she (Reena Roy) came after 1950s in the industry. I would think of Madhubalaji, Waheeda Rehmanji, and Suchitra Sen. I can only think of these faces. I am quite excited about the film. I am really looking forward to it," Sonakhi told reporters at the first look launch of "Lootera" Friday.
Thanks to his storytelling technique and freshness in the narrative, Motwane became a name to reckon with after the success of "Udaan(2010)", which had wowed cinegoers at Cannes fest.
But he doesn't feel any pressure.
"I do not feel the pressure. I am not bothered. Rather, I am very much proud of the film. I hope people like it. I want everyone to enjoy the film," he said.
"Lootera" is said to be inspired by American author O Henry's famous story "The Last Leaf", but Motwane clarified saying, "We have been inspired by the book, but we haven't adapted it. We have made changes in it. It is a fresh film."
For the male lead, Motwane has cast Ranveer Singh.
Jointly produced by Phantom Films and Balaji Motion Pictures, "Lootera" is slated for a July 5 release.
