Sonu Sood Banned From Playing Villain Until Dabangg 2
The biggest blockbuster of 2010 Dabangg brought Sonu Sood the much needed name and recognition as a skilled actor however, he has now been banned from accepting any bad man roles until Dabangg 2.
The actor made his Bollywood debut with 2002 release ‘Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh’ but went unnoticed. Since then he has appeared in many other flicks like Aashiq Banaya Aapne, Singh Is Kinng and Dhoondte Reh Jaaoge.
"It`s true I have been told not to expend my mean muscles until `Dabangg 2`. Interestingly, I`ve signed two major cop roles. One is a dream-come-true role in Puri Jaganaath`s `Boodha` where I play Amitabh Bachchan's son. My role is modelled on Amitji in 'Zanjeer'," said Sonu.
The 37-year old is working hard to prepare for the role and has watched Zanjeer almost 17 times till now. In addition to it, the actor also spent few days with a senior police officer in Punjab in order to learn the body language and traits of a police officer.
"I`ve spent time with DGP (Director General of Police) P.S. Gill. He has helped me understand how a cop functions," said Sonu.
While talking about his other project Maximum, he said, “I again a play cop in Kabir Kaushik's underworld drama Maximum. I had no intentions of doing any other film except 'Boodha' this year. And that too another role as a cop! When I read the script of 'Maximum', I was bowled over. I will play this cop very differently from the one in 'Boodha'.”
