When the filmmaker was asked whether he has any role for the 29-year-old actress, at a special screening of AR Murugadoss' Akira, hesaid, "There are loads of roles for Sonakshi. But does she have time? She is a busy actor. I of course want her in my film."
The 43-year-old actor-director, who is playing the antagonist opposite Sonakshi in the film, was all praise for the Lootera star's acting.
"Sonakshi is a convincing action-hero. She will make you believe in her stunts. It is a completely female driven film," he said.
Akira, which also stars Konkona Sen Sharma, Amit Sadh, Atul Kulkarni and others, is all set to hit the theatres tomorrow.
