"She has just left for IIFA and post the event she would be taking an overseas holiday. Once back, she would immediately begin shooting for this Tamil film with Rajinikanth," confirms our source.
It is expected that the shooting would begin after 9th May once Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone starrer Kochadaaiyaan would have hit the screens.
Confirms Sonakshi, "Very few people in the industry get an opportunity to do a film with 'Thalaivar'. If I had to make a debut in South, it had to be something as big as this. I can't wait to begin shooting for him in May."
"It would be too early for me to detail that out. However, I am glad that it is a very worthwhile role," says Sonakshi who is also gearing up to get a hold of Tamil for the film.
"It is a new language, new people and new industry. Yes, the film is basically in Tamil and it is going to be a new experience. I believe they would be releasing the film in Hindi as well," she says.
Meanwhile, on her return to India, Sonakshi would also begin promotion of Akshay Kumar starrer Holiday which releases in June. Meanwhile, she would be resuming shoot for Tevar as well where she has Arjun Kapoor for company. Guess after five releases last year, Sonakshi isn't in mood to take any rest whatsoever this year as well.
