Stardust (English) - - RUMOURS & REJOINDERS -

Magna house wit­nessed yet an­other starry evening when the dash­ing and debonair ac­tor Sonu Sood came to un­veil the Au­gust is­sue of So­ci­ety mag­a­zine. His co-ac­tor in the movie Pal­tan, Ar­jun Ram­pal and he graced the cover. Look­ing dap­per in a suit, Sonu in­ter­acted with ev­ery­one present. The ac­tor was joined by Nari Hira, Chair­man, Magna Pub­lish­ing Co Ltd, and Arwa Jan­jali, Deputy Edi­tor, So­ci­ety. The em­cee for the evening was Shar­bani Mukher­jee. The Da­bangg ac­tor wasted no time and an­swered the ques­tions asked by the me­dia. The first ques­tion was re­gard­ing the shoot­ing of J.P Dutta’s film Pal­tan. Sonu averred, “We had been shoot­ing for three months at Ladakh where it is -20 to -25 de­gree with no oxy­gen in the months of Novem­ber and

De­cem­ber. Ar­jun and I some­how man­aged. We have some com­mon in­ter­ests and bonded well, there­fore the cover also looks mag­i­cal. When I was a kid, my mom used to wake me up at 5:30 am so all my life I was do­ing this. Even to­day, if I am trav­el­ling or pack­ing late, I still man­age to wake up that early and go for my work­outs that I have been fol­low­ing since years.” Sonu also dis­played his re­spect and love for the forces which pro­tect our bor­ders. When asked about his ex­pe­ri­ence of shoot­ing with the sol­diers, he quipped, “Ev­ery day was a new learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. The sol­diers used to sit with us and eat with us. They used to talk about their ex­pe­ri­ence at the war front. They used to show their bul­let wounds, and they used to feel so proud. The sol­diers have been sac­ri­fic­ing their lives at the bor­der and we were there just for a cou­ple of months, so we have to make them proud.” He added, “My dad wanted me to be a soldier and when I told him I am go­ing to be a part of Pal­tan, he was pretty ex­cited and he has show­ered his bless­ings on me.” The evening ended with fans flock­ing in to pose with the star as he ex­ited the gates of the Magna House.
