Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha‘s next ‘Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi‘ is certainly one of the most highly-anticipated movies, this year.
The favorable response to the trailer launched recently is a testament to that!
Reportedly, the actress will be seen driving a truck in the upcoming comedy-drama that also features Diana Penty, Jimmy Shergill, Ali Fazal and Piyush Mishra in pivotal roles.
“For a particular scene, Sonakshi needed to drive a truck, which isn’t an easy task. Mudassar wasn’t sure if the actress would be able to pull it off because the heavy vehicle was not even on power steering. But she learnt it within a few days.”Much to the filmmaker’s surprise, Sonakshi drove the truck for almost 25-30 kilometers”, reveals a close source.
Says Sonakshi, “Driving a truck is an entirely different ball game so everyone on set was quite concerned how I would drive it. Luckily for me, I learnt how to drive on a manual SUV when I was 16, so I took that approach. So when I did drive it, of course the steering was very heavy and difficult to maneuver but I got the hang of it very quickly and everyone on set was super impressed!”
Directed by Mudassar Aziz, the film is all set to hit the theatres on August 24.
