20 Best Sonakshi Sinha Movies and TV Shows (and Where to Watch Them)

Published on

Sonakshi Sinha started out as a costume designer for independent films but eventually established herself as a Bollywood name following her debut in Dabangg. Apart from frequently starring alongside stars like Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, and Ajay Devgn, Sinha has also got top billing in women-led dramas like the action thriller Akira and the journalism-themed dramedy Noor. With the Prime Video cop thriller Dahaad and the Netflix period drama Heeramandi, Sinha has also successfully established herself in the OTT space.

Here’s a look at the best movies and TV shows starring Sonakshi Sinha along with all the information that you need to stream them.

From Dabangg to Dahaad: What Sonakshi Sinha movies and TV shows should you watch first? 

For starters, one can watch the Dabangg franchise as it established Sinha as a new face in the industry. It all started with the over-the-top action comedy Dabangg that starred Salman Khan as the khaki-wearing casanova Chulbul Pandey and Sinha as Lajjo, the woman he falls in love with. However, the Dabangg trilogy doesn’t allow Sinha to fully flesh out her dramatic range and mainly puts the spotlight on Khan.

Sinha has had similar roles in other masala potboilers like Bullet Raja, R…Rajkumar, Rowdy Rathore, Action Jackson, and Tevar. All of these action films are full-fledged entertainers in their own right and boast Sinha taking on some comedic roles. But to get a deeper idea of her emotional skills, Lootera is a cult favourite to watch.

The period romance directed by Vikramaditya Motwane stars Sinha as the daughter of a wealthy landowner who gets charmed by Ranveer Singh’s mysterious archeologist. However, the script doesn’t reduce her to the hero’s love interest. Rather, she gives a career-defining performance as Paki Roy Chaudhary, an ever-curious soul who wishes to step out of her conservative life and discover her passion as a writer.

As her career progressed, Sinha also took on women-centric dramas where she got top billing. These include Noor in which she played a journalist finding her identity in the urban chaos of Mumbai. In Akira, Sinha tried to rebrand herself as an action heroine and displayed similar traits in mystery thrillers like Force 2 and Ittefaq.

Double XL is another interesting comedy-drama to watch, starring Sinha along with Huma Quereshi as two plus-sized women who battle body-shaming stigmas by following their professional instincts.

But perhaps a new high in Sinha’s career came from 2023 onwards when she fronted the cop drama series Dahaad. Marking her OTT debut, Sinha played a hot-headed policewoman who pursues a woman-killing psychopath in Rajasthan. Sinha followed her class act with the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed Netflix series Heeramandi. In this visually dazzling period drama, Sinha had a double role as a vengeful courtesan and her mother.

Why is Dahaad Sonakshi Sinha’s best title to watch?

While Sonakshi Sinha has had memorable roles in movies like Lootera, it is Dahaad that marked her second coming on streaming. Dahaad appears as a standard investigative thriller in the start, with Sinha essaying the role of Sub-Inspector Anjali Bhaati. But as the episodes progress, Sinha’s character doesn’t only chase a serial killer but also challenges the casteist notions of her village. It’s a bold role that Sinha takes on with conviction and confidence, earning her a Filmfare OTT Award.
