Mumbai, April 8 (IANS) Nowadays Bollywood stars are going crazy about tattoos. Saif Ali Khan set a trend by having a tattoo of his girlfriend Kareena Kapoor's name on his forearm and now it is Sonu Sood's turn.
While Saif did it to flaunt his love for Kareena, Sonu's tattoo is strictly for his role in 'Dhoondte Rahe Jaoge'. His tattoo is stretched all the way from his shoulder.
And the interesting part is that this tattoo has been done by a deaf and mute artist called Anil.
'I sketched out the rough idea for Anil. He then wrote down his suggestions for me. After an exchange of ideas on paper, we started work. It took three hours but ended up looking too small on my beefy arm. So Anil had to re-work it, making it slightly bigger and now it's just right and the design incorporates some martial arts weapons,' said Sonu.
After the success of 'Jodhaa Akbar', in which Sonu played Aishwarya Rai's cousin, UTV has signed him for their next movie 'Dhoondte Rahe Jaoge' as a lead opposite Soha Ali Khan. Here he plays an actor who ends up enacting 11 different roles.
Sonu is very keen to show his new 'avatar' to everybody but due to his shooting for Rajshree Productions's 'Ek Vivah Aisi Bhi' he has to hide his arm wearing full-sleeved shirts and T-shirts nowadays.
