HITS AND FLOPS DON’T AFFECT SONA
Far from worrying over box office results, the actor says that she moves on rather quickly
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.
