Sonakshi Sinha won’t stop doing challenging roles
Actor Sonakshi Sinha (right), who is known for her vivacious, girlnext- door image, says that she made a New Year’s resolution to pick challenging roles and is following up on it. “I made a New Year’s resolution that I am going to do very challenging roles. I think I have stuck to that resolution,” Sonakshi says.
The 28-year-old has some interesting roles coming up. For AR Murugadoss’ directorial, Sonakshi is training to convincingly pull off the role of a girl who is familiar with martial arts. “I had to train for the role and it was quite difficult. Luckily, I used to play a lot of sports while growing up, so it came naturally to me. I have never trained in martial arts, but I picked up quickly during the training. In fact, I trained throughout the film and it was quite a physical experience,” she says.
In another project, which is yet to go on floors, Sonakshi will essay the role of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s sister, Haseena. The film, titled Haseena — The Queen of Mumbai, is reportedly a biopic and will be directed by Apoorva Lakhia.
The actor says that she is happy to be part of the film, as it has a strong narrative and presents 30 to 40 years of the p life: “It is interesting how they (filmmakers) show her entire story, which spans 30 to 40 years in one film. I am glad to get this opportunity. It is a good script and a powerful role.”
The actor, who is also one of the judges on a reality show, is now learning to play drum roll. “I am a part of the film industry, so music and dance go hand-inhand. I am fond of dancing and music is a natural part of it. I am learning how to play drums. I also enjoy singing,” says Sonakshi.
