"In R… Rajkumar, the only dancing number for Sonakshi was 'Saree Ke Fall Sa' and there too she had relatively easy steps. As for 'Gandi Baat', most of the dancing was done by Charmee Kaur since Sonakshi was there only in the dream sequence. As for all the major dancing, Prabhu Dheva didn't look beyond Shahid and together they came up with something unique. Sonakshi always used to jovially complain that she was being sidelined as far as dancing was concerned," informs a source.
Prabhu Dheva, who had made her go ballistic in 'Go Go Govinda' [OMG – Oh My God! ] and 'Dhadang Dhang' [Rowdy Rathore] listened to her and made sure that when it came to Action Jackson, she was duly compensated for all the misses.
"I had said to him during R… Rajkumar that he was getting greedy due to Shahid in there. Guess he kept all my taunts in mind and now for Action Jackson, he has given me the toughest dance steps," smiles Sonakshi, "Even during rehearsals of these songs, he just stood there and asked me to dance the fullest."
"Well, I can say that both songs have typical Prabhu Dheva style of dancing though," she laughs, "It is all the more exciting as both songs have Ajay and me together."
Insiders from the crew state that in his typical manner, Prabhu Dheva has devised some never seen before dance steps for Ajay and made him do the unthinkable. As for Sonakshi, she wasn't even a wee bit surprised after pretty much getting used to expecting the unexpected from her director.
