HITS AND FLOPS DON’T AF­FECT SONA

Many Bol­ly­wood stars keenly track box-of­fice fig­ures and au­di­ence re­sponse, but Sonakshi Sinha is not one to stress about the fate of her films. The ac­tor says she has never taken suc­cess or fail­ure of her projects se­ri­ously. “A hit or a flop makes no dif­fer­ence to me per­son­ally. By the time a film has re­leased and got­ten the ver­dict of a hit or a flop, I will have al­ready moved on to shoot­ing my next film. The only dif­fer­ence comes through in what peo­ple per­ceive of you based on what they read and what has been spo­ken. But I have never been some­one who takes that se­ri­ously,” says the 29-year-old. The ac­tor, who was last seen in the 2015 dud Te­var along­side Ar­jun Kapoor, says this year, she has con­sciously cho­sen films that have made her push the en­ve­lope. “I just started shoot­ing for Sun­hil Sippy’s di­rec­to­rial Noor and af­ter the re­lease of AR Mu­ru­ga­doss’ film, my next re­lease will be the se­quel of Force. I am ea­gerly await­ing the re­lease of all these films be­cause each one of them has chal­lenged me and por­trayed me very dif­fer­ently than what you have seen of me in all these years,” says Sona, who plays a Pak­istan-based jour­nal­ist in Noor, and will be seen in ac­tion-packed roles in Mu­ru­ga­doss’ film and the se­quel of Force.

The brand new ac­tion avatar, did not come easy for the ac­tor, who got in­jured a few times dur­ing the shoot. She says that at times it’s not pos­si­ble to avoid an in­jury, but there should be safety pro­ce­dures on film sets to pre­vent them. “While per­form­ing ac­tion, all safety pre­cau­tions should be taken care of to avoid any pos­si­ble in­juries. Such things can halt shoot­ing sched­ules and that’s just an avoid­able in­con­ve­nience to a lot of peo­ple. But, of course, some­times no mat­ter how care­ful you are, it just hap­pens, maybe not even for any fault of yours. To­mor­row some­one can trip while do­ing the sim­plest of things like walk­ing and run­ning and in­jure them­selves,” she says.

The only dif­fer­ence comes through in what peo­ple per­ceive of you based on what they read and what has been spo­ken. But I have never been some­one who takes that se­ri­ously SONAKSHI SINHA, AC­TOR
