Sonakshi Sinha finds Eid very lucky for her, after all her debut film Dabangg released on Eid in 2010 and went on to become a blockbuster.
Hoping for an encore, Sonakshi wanted to have yet another Eid release this year and hence she requested the makers of her forthcoming film Lootera to come on Eid. However, the Eid date had already been taken by her Dabangg co-star Salman Khan for his film Ek Tha Tiger and Sonakshi felt it wasn’t the right thing to do to clash with Sallu on the same day
So makers of Lootera (Balaji Films and Phantom) came up with a solution of releasing their film on Bakri Eid which falls on Oct 26 this year. This way Sonakshi can have her Eid release and at the same time avoid a clash with Salman Khan.
Lootera is a classic love story, set in the 1950s starring Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha. The shooting of this film directed by Vikramaditya Motwane commenced last week in Dalhousie.
