Lace up @sonakshisinha, let’s get this started #HappyPhirrBhagJayegi – 24th August @ErosNow @cypplOfficial.”
On asking Sonakshi Sinha whether she has been afraid to do a movie with two heroines, she has said, “No, how do you make equations like that all the time? So many times there have been actors whom I didn’t know or had an equation with when I worked with them for the first time. Akshaye Khanna, for instance. Why should it be any different for a heroine? I have not worked with Jacqueline (Fernandez) before but I also meet her at parties and we get along really well. I am someone who gets along with everyone. So I need to find someone who I’m not okay with, first to decide on this.”
