Sonakshi Sinha and Imran Khan to lock-lips

The ‘Dabangg’ girl Sonakshi Sinha is finally ready to shed her inhibitions. Sonakshi who always shied away from doing intimate scene in her movies finally gave her nod to go steamy with her ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai 2’ co-star Imran Khan. Imran steps into Emraan Hashmi’s role in the sequel. In the original, Emraan had few intimate scene with his love interest Prachi Desai in the original and hence to match to Emraan’s role, director Milan Luthria has included intimate scene between Imran and Sonakshi.

"The makers of the sequel thought it was important to include such a scene, to match up to the steamy scenes of the Emraan Hashmi starrer. So,the original script of the sequel had a sensuous scene between Imran and Sonakshi," a source said. However, now the intimate scene might be toned down and reduced to a smooch. "Milan had few rounds of discussions with the actors. Although, Imran was game, Sonakshi needed some convincing," the source added.

While it was easy to convince Imran as in the past he had portrayed few intimate scenes but it was difficult to convince the first timer Sonakshi Sinha. After much convictions and discussions, Sonakshi got ready to give to the script demand.
