Sonakshi Sinha, till recently dubbed a one film wonder by a section of the tabloid press, is now one of the most sought after Bollywood stars, if not 'the' most sorted.
It's time for Sonakshi's detractors to eat humble pie as the 24-year-old star lays into them not with words but a calendar that doesn't have a free date right through to early 2012.
Sawfnews.com has the scoop on the upcoming films that will keep Sonakshi busy in the days ahead and the list has been verified by Sonakshi's business manager Rucha Naik.

In August she will begin filming for Sanjay Leela Bhansali production Rowdy Rathod with co-star Akshay Kumar. The action thriller will be helmed by choreographer/director Prabhu Deva. The film is a remake of S.S. Rajamouli's Telugu 2006 film, Vikramarkudu, headlining Ravi Teja and Anushka Shetty. Teja plays a double role in the film - a small time thief and a cop.
Abbas Mustan's multi starrer crime thriller Race 2 will begin filming in October. The film is a sequel to Race (2008). Anil Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan reprise their roles but the rest of the cast is new.
