Competition is a foolish thing: Sonali
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.
