Mumbai: Sonakshi Sinha, daughter of veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha wants to do glamorous roles and has signed ‘Race 2’, a sequel to Director Abbas Mastan’s ‘Race’.

The Dabangg actress played the role of a demure village girl in her debut movie. But now the actress is eyeing something different so that she does not get typecast. 

"I believe as an actress one must do different roles. I wanted to change my image from being a traditional girl to a glamorous one. So I signed 'Race 2'," Sonakshi said, on the
sidelines of FICCI Frames awards.

Director duo Abbas-Mustan wants Sonakshi to get rid from her 'gaon ki gori' image and look stylish and chic. To get herself fit into the role, Sonakshi has decided to shed the extra pounds.

"I had to first lose weight for my debut film. Now I have to get into even better shape for my two upcoming films 'Joker' and 'Race 2'," the 23-year-old actress said.

The newbie has replaced the sultry actress Bipasha Basu in the sequel to 'Race'.
Sonakshi would be seen next opposite Akshay Kumar in Shirish Kunder's 'Joker', a 3D film. Then there is 'Race 2' alongside Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham and Deepika
Padukone. These two films will be released this year.
