Sonu Sood who received critical acclaim for his villainy in the film Arundhati will play the role of a police officer for the first time in Puri Jagannath’s Buddha starring Amitabh Bachchan. Sonu has so far played only baddie characters in both Hindi and Telugu films. Even inSalman Khan‘s hit film Dabangg, he played a character with negative shades.
Sonu Sood is happy that he is playing the role of a cop. He says he interacted with some police officers to learn the naunces of their duties. Since Buddha is a Hindi film to be entirely shot in Mumbai, Sonu feels he can essay his role more comfortably.
Sonu feels that soon he may be offered positive roles by film makers as he would not like to be branded as an actor who can play only negative roles.
