Sajid stands up for Sonakshi

Mumbai, February 23:

Sonakshi Sinha invited comparisons with Reena Roy when she stepped out in a 1980s disco-style look for the launch of "Thank god it's Friday", her special song from upcoming film "Himmatwala". But the movie's director, Sajid Khan, came to her rescue.

Sonakshi was dressed in a shimmery silver dress complete with a headgear. She stated the look was inspired by Parveen Babi's look in "Shaan". However, mediapersons could not help but point out a resemblance with yesteryear actress Reena Roy's look in songs like "Disco station" and "Jaane jaan".

When Sonakshi was asked if she felt the same too, Sajid answered instead.

"She looks very much like Sonakshi Sinha! In fact the two outfits that we chose were (inspired) by Parveen Babi...and another like Sridevi. You cannot compare her (Sonakshi) with any other heroine, she has her own style, own charisma and she is fabulous," said Sajid, who has helmed "Himmatwala", a remake of the 1983 film of the same name.

Again, when a similar query was posed to Sonakshi, Sajid responded: "Not really! What you see is what you get, this is Sonakshi Sinha - looking beautiful, looking very much the top heroine that she is, looking fab.

"When this song catches on, you will find a lot of girls - 14, 15, 16-year-old girls copying Sonakshi," Sajid said.

"Himmatwala" features Ajay Devgn and Tammannaah.
