Mumbai, March 13, 2017: Actress Sonakshi Sinha will perform at Grammy Award winner and global pop sensation Justin Bieber’s Purpose World Tour here in May, she said on Monday.

The actress will perform as one of the opening acts at the highly anticipated gig, which will be held at the DY Patil Stadium here on May 10.

“I am really fond of Justin Bieber’s music and I love how his sound has evolved over the years and today he reaches out to a universal fan base. I’m definitely looking forward to this event,” Sonakshi said in a statement.

The “Lootera” actress is currently working on a new single and intends to launch it at the Purpose Tour.

Arjun Jain, Director, White Fox India — the sole promoters of the tour, said: “We are looking at very innovative opening acts for the Bieber concert and we would love to have Sonakshi to be a part of it. It’s too preliminary to confirm anything but the discussions are underway.”

The 22-year-old Canadian singer-songwriter is expected to perform hits like “Where are you now”, “Boyfriend”, “Love yourself”, “Company”, “As long as you love me”, “What do you mean?”, “Baby” and “Purpose”.

Bieber’s latest jaunt is in support of his fourth album “Purpose”, wherein he has experimented with more exploratory electronic sounds.

Apart from India, the Asia leg of the tour comprises Tel Aviv in Israel and Dubai in the UAE. (IANS)

Actress Sonakshi Sinha, who has featured in the video of the recreated version of “Mungda” song, says that makers repackage iconic songs for the current generation.

Her latest dance number “Mungda” for the film “Total Dhamaal” has earned the wrath of the fans of the original number featuring Helen.

“Mungda” was originally sung by Usha Mangeshkar with music by Rajesh Roshan and lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

The song has been recreated by singers Jyotica Tangri, Shaan and Subhro Ganguly and music director duo Gourov-Roshin.

Reacting to the criticism, Sonakshi said: “Even I like the original better and there is no comparison with that. When we recreate a song, that time we don’t think that we will make a particular song better than the original one because when you are recreating an iconic song then there is no point making comparison with the recreated song.”

“We are only trying to repackage that and give it to the today’s generation who might not listen to old songs. For me as an artiste, I have been told by makers of the film that they wanted me to be a part of the song as they don’t see anybody performing it so, that was a big deal for me that makers felt that I would do justice to the song and I am very happy.”

Sonakshi was interacting with the media at the fourth edition of Next Brand Vision Awards 2019 here on Tuesday.

Talking about her upcoming releases, she said: “I am looking forward to every film of mine which is coming out this year. ‘Kalank’ is my next release. It is releasing in April.

Asked about the amount of fun audiences should expect from “Dabangg 3”, Sonakshi said: “Double and triple of what you saw in first two parts.” (IANS)
