Com­pe­ti­tion is a fool­ish thing: Sonali

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out - Naina Arora naina.arora@hin­dus­tan­times.com

Ac­tor Sonali Kulka­rni (be­low) who per­formed in New Delhi to a stand­ing ova­tion as part of the play Gardish Mein Taare di­rected by Saif Hy­der Hasan, says she’s a big gam­bler when it comes to choos­ing a project. Speak­ing on her per­for­mance, she says, “The au­di­ence was ex­tremely gen­er­ous. I was thrilled and over­whelmed with the re­sponse.”

The Na­tional Award­win­ning ac­tor shares that she goes with the flow when it comes to choos­ing pro­jects and says that be­ing in a com­pe­ti­tion is ‘fool­ish’. “I am quite free-spir­ited. I pick up pro­jects on in­stinct. I never plan that itne din I will do theatre and itni din films,” she says, adding, “In films I have been do­ing Bol­ly­wood, re­gional and in­ter­na­tional films. Rather than get­ting over­whelmed or bogged down with time frames and sched­ule plan­ning, I have de­cided to keep go­ing with the flow. It’s the only way where you can stop com­pet­ing with oth­ers.”

Asked why we don’t see too much of her in Bol­ly­wood films, Sonali ad­mits that she has been pre­oc­cu­pied with Marathi pro­jects. “My fo­cus was a bit scat­tered in be­tween as I have been work­ing in a va­ri­ety of lan­guages. I have been work­ing on quite a lot of Marathi pro­jects since it is my mother tongue,” she signs off.
