Actor Sonu Sood (right), who has been seen in noteworthy roles in films such as Dabangg (2012), Jodhaa Akbar (2008) and Shootout at Wadala (2013), says that he never doubted his success in Bollywood. The actor, who started his career with Tamil films, says he has always trusted his instincts. “When I had started my career, I was sure that I would fit in the film industry. There was not even a single moment when I felt that I won’t make it. My instincts have always worked for me,” says Sonu.
Although he is happy with his growth in the industry, he knows he has a long way to go. “No matter how much you have achieved in life, you always want more. I had my share of struggles and have now done up to 65 films. But I also know that I have a long way to go,” he says.
The actor will soon be judging a comedy show on the small screen and says that he always wanted to do something like this. “I love the show as I love comedy. I have always been associated with comedy. Even when I was shooting for Dabangg (2010), I would often improvise and suggest changes. My character was supposed to be very serious, but I made him funny. All my directors and actors know that I like to improvise on the set,” he says, adding, “Plus, TV has such a wide reach and my fans have always seen me playing roles on-screen. This is the first time that they will see me remain myself in front of the camera.”
