When I had started my ca­reer, I was sure that I would fit in the film in­dus­try

Sonu Sood, ac­tor

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.”
