"My music teacher taught me Sa re ga ma pa, but did not return after that and that is where my desire to sing stagnated," Sonakshi said at the launch of Sony Entertainment Television's "Indian Idol Junior", which will beam starting May 30.

When Sonakshi shared this desire, the show's co-judge Vishal Dadlani promptly added: "She is a good singer. We are doing a film titled 'Akira' where Sonakshi is the 'hero'.

I promise you that she is going to sing in that film."The actress, who delivered a memorable performance in "Lootera", says she wanted to sing in that movie.  She did a little rap to the Yo Yo Honey Singh song "Party all night".

On the film front, the 27-year-old is currently filming  "Akira", which is an action-drama by director AR Murugadoss.
