Sonakshi Sinha is all set for the release of her second flick, Rowdy Rathore with Akshay Kumar. And though she won hearts with her desi look in Dabangg, I doubt the audiences want to see her do the same thing over and over again.

She’s also going to be seen in traditional Indian outfits in almost five other movies like Joker, Once Upon a Time Again, Dabangg 2, Son Of Sardar and Lootera. Phew! That’s a really long time to stick to one look especially when actors like Priyanka Chopra and Bipasha Basu are constantly reinventing their looks. Also, with the buzz around Deepika Padukone wearing a bikini in Cocktail, journos asked Sona about her take on sporting one. Here’s what the desi diva had to say:

“It’s a complete no-no to bikini because I am not that kind of a person. I have been bought up in a certain way. I have certain restrictions that I follow and I don’t see any reason to change it because if the audience has accepted me fully clothed, then why would I resort to it? I am a normal Indian girl who wears jeans and T shirts normally. Born and brought up in Mumbai, so I am used to wearing clothes like that.”

Sonakshi was all praise for Vidya Balan‘s bold avatar in The Dirty Picture but she also spoke about how she’d never be game for intimate scenes like Vidya. Here’s what she feels about taking on bold characters in movies:

“It was a great film and Vidya’s performance was fantastic. I respect her so much as an actress after that film, but it takes guts to do something like that. I don’t think I will be able to pull it off with the restrictions that I have.”
