After appearing in the song “Go Go Govinda” as herself in the acclaimed movie OMG Oh My God, Sinha repeated opting for mass entertainers by playing the female lead in Ajay Devgn’s ensemble comedy Son Of Sardar , which again saw her practically doing nothing and was panned by some critics for being constantly overshadowed by male counterparts in superstar ventures which never had anything in her for to showcase her acting expertize although many also saw her performances as satisfactory and refereed to it a s “guilty pleasure” watching her on screen. The movie had a great run at the box office although only with mixed reviews.
