Sonakshi Sinha excited about singing live

Actress Sonakshi Sinha, who will be singing live for the first time at a college here, says she is elated to see her dream of singing turn into reality.

Sonakshi, who has sung a track titled “Raj raj ke” for her upcoming film “Akira”, will perform live on Wednesday.

“Ever since I was a kid, I had one big dream that someday I will sing live and have people dancing to my tunes… Slowly that dream is coming true,” Sonakshi said in a statement.

The actress, who made her debut into singing with a new single titled “Ishqoholic” last year, added that she feels “lucky to have the opportunity to sing such a beautiful and soul-touching song like ‘Raj raj ke’”.

Sonakshi hopes she wins everyone’s hearts with her live gig.

She said: “When I heard the song a few days before the shoot and while we were shooting the video, I couldn’t stop singing it. From that, it led to me recording for it and from that to actually performing it live, is like a big dream come true.

“I’m very excited. I really hope everyone likes it.”

Presented by Fox Star Studios, “Akira” is directed by A.R. Murugadoss, who had previously directed Sonakshi in the film “Holiday”.

“Akira” sees Sonakshi’s character coming to Mumbai from Jodhpur, where she gets into a tiff with the goons of the college she enrolls in. The story is about her fight to come out of a case in which the goons and corrupt police officials play crucial roles.

The film, also starring Anurag Kashyap and Konkona Sen Sharma, will release on September 2.
