The king of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan will be seen sharing screen space with Sonu Sood in Happy New Year. Sonu Sood says his co-actor Shah Rukh Khan is jealous of his talent of portraying negative roles.
Sonu has tried his hands at negative and positive characters in his filmdom career, but Shahrukh is particularly in awe of his portrayal of a villain.
At the recent unveiling of the cover of Health and Nutrition magazine featuring Sonu, he was asked why he hardly plays positive characters, he said; “I have done a lot of positive roles and I have a positive role in Happy New Year also. But like I said, times have changed. You just need to entertain, whether it’s a positive or a negative role.”
“Recently, when we were shooting for Happy New Year, Shah Rukh told me that ‘I get very jealous of you when you do negative roles and I also want to do an out-and-out negative roles without any songs,” said Sonu.
Sonu, who was seen as villain Chhedi Singh in Dabangg, said he is open to all kinds of characters, provided they are good.
“As long as I get to do good roles, it doesn’t really matter whether it’s a positive or a negative role,” the 41-year-old told reporters. His last negative role was in R…Rajkumar that stars Shahid Kapoor also.
