A chance to act on Broadway is not an opportunity that comes along for too many people – not even some A-Listers – but Sonakshi Sinha has been offered just that recently! According to reports in the papers today, a group in New York has approached Sonakshi to play a role in the Broadway adaptation of O Henry‘s The Last Leaf, which was the novel that the Sonakshi Sinha and Ranveer Singh starrer Lootera was based on. It seems like her performance in that film impressed this group, and therefore they called her to give her the offer!
Whether Sonakshi will take up this new stint is not known yet, as she has to check her schedule and figure out whether she will have the dates to give them. However, her spokesperson did confirm this news to Mirror, saying that Sonakshi did get the offer to perform on the Broadway show, but will take a call some time soon.
However, while she has this to be proud about – as well as the good reviews from fans and critics for Lootera – Sonakshi has just tweeted saying that she’s disappointed at the reception the film received at this year’s award functions. She has been nominated, but other people who worked on the film – including the actor and director – have been left out. “Didn’t they call it a masterpiece/poetry in motion/world class/technically superior film when it first released? That seems like qualification enough to be there!” Here’s her tweet in full:
What do you think? Would you like to see Sonakshi on Broadway? Do you think she should definitely take up this opportunity? Do you agree that Lootera hasn’t received its due in the nominations list? Let us know in the comments below!
