SONA’S LOOK­ING FOR A DI­REC­TOR

She has turned pro­ducer, but Son­akshi Sinha says that the film­mak­ers she wants to en­trust her film with are busy

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Shalvi Man­gaokar shalvi. man­gaokar@ hin­dus­tan­times. com What’s the progress like on your home pro­duc­tion in­volv­ing your brother? Ex­pec­ta­tions are more from star kids, and they’re al­ways per­ceived as the ones who get it easy. Your take on this? Although y

Son­akshi Sinha is set to turn pro­ducer, but she con­fesses that un­like act­ing, pro­duc­tion isn’t easy. The 28-year-old ac­tor gets chatty about her new role be­hind the cam­era, her jour­ney so far, and more. We have been go­ing through so many scripts, (but) it’s not easy be­ing a pro­ducer. For our first ven­ture, we want it to be just right and some­thing all three of us, i.e., Luv, Kush and I, agree upon. All the di­rec­tors that we want to work with right now are al­ready com­mit­ted, so the de­ci­sion is pend­ing on whether we should go with some­one new or wait. Yes, I guess just as you would ex­pect a lawyer’s child to be a great lawyer, or a doc­tor’s child to be a great doc­tor, peo­ple do ex­pect more out of ac­tors’ chil­dren too. It’s nat­u­ral, I guess. But about the get­ting it easy part, yes, may be the ini­tial meet­ing, or au­di­tion or even a film may hap­pen be­cause of con­nec­tions. But af­ter that it’s all on you. It has been a great learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Be­cause I love what I do, I’ve never re­ally found it hard or con­sid­ered it as work, so to say. This is my life. If an out­sider sees a day in my life, the hard work, the com­mit­ment, the long hours, the travel and han­dling var­i­ous sit­u­a­tions pa­tiently, they might think it’s hard and stress­ful. But to me, it’s what I live for! I ac­tu­ally share a lot with my fans. I’m so ac­tive on so­cial media that they prac­ti­cally know-it-alls! There are cer­tain things that don’t need to be shared with the world. My fam­ily and my friends are most im­por­tant to me, and I am pro­tec­tive about them.
