Sonu Sood earned a great name as villain in Tollywood. His negative role in Arundhati won him awards. His villainy in Salman Khan‘s Dabangg has been highly appreciated by film buffs and noticed by film makers.
The news now is that Sonu Sood has signed a contract with Arbaz Khan that he will not act as villain in any Bollywood film until the completion of the sequel Dabangg 2 where his role has been considerably expanded.
Sonu says he will still act villain roles in Telugu films but accepted cop roles in Hindi. He plays a police officer and son of Amitabh Bachchan in Puri Jagannath’s Buddha. His role is said to be modelled on the lines of Big B’s role in Zanzeer.
The second film where Sonu acts as cop is Kabir Kaushik’s underworld drama Maximum where Arshad Warsi for the first time plays a villain.
