Since the last few years, Sonu Sood’s career has been on the upswing. After sharing screen space with Hrithik Roshan in Jodhaa Akbar and Akshay Kumar in Singh Is Kinng, Sonu is all set to star alongside Salman Khan in Arbaaz Khan’s home production Dabangg. Bollywood Hungama spoke to Sonu to get some more information on his role in the film. “Yes, I am doing Dabangg. It’s an action drama which centers around the crime scene in U.P and Bihar. I can’t reveal too much about my character but I play a youth leader with grey shades.” The buzz is that Sonu, who also has a chiseled physique, would be seen in a bare-chested fight sequence opposite the original ‘Muscle Man’ Salman Khan. “Yes there is a lot of action in the film and this is one of the fight sequences in the film” Dabangg is directed by Abhinav Kashyap (Anurag Kashyap’s brother) and stars Salman Khan, Arbaaz Khan, Sonu Sood and Sonakshi Sinha who makes her debut with this film. Shooting for this film begins in September.
