Son­akshi Sinha won’t stop do­ing chal­leng­ing roles

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

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.
