Even as Saif-Sonakshi’s chemistry in Bullett Raja is being talked about especially with the song Saamne Hai Savera becoming a chartburster, we must tell you that the lead pair also bonded very well off screen and discovered they have a lot of common interests including their love for Bengali mithai!
Incidentally, Tigmanshu specially created a scene where Saif flirts with Sonakshi using the references of Bengali sweets—like Chamcham, Sandesh, Rasgulla and Mishtidoi! It so happened that soon after the scene was shot, Saif and other crew members started addressing Sonakshi as Mishtidoi. A source from the production team added, “Since Sonakshi is very sweet to talk to and is extremely soft spoken, Saif gave her a new name. Tigmanshu too, who considers Sonakshi a classic Bengali beauty, joined in and soon everyone else started addressing her so, as well”
In the film Sonakshi plays the role of a Bengali and is a struggling actress and Saif will reprise the role of a UP gangster who falls for her head over heels!
Bullett Raja releases on Nov 29. A Fox Star Studios presentation, it’s a BrandSmith Motion Pictures and a Moving Pictures production.
