Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

It is tough. You have to be on your toes, and keep on en­ter­tain­ing peo­ple so that you can sur­vive SONU SOOD, AC­TOR

Ac­tor Sonu Sood (above) says he has had a long and dif­fi­cult jour­ney in Bol­ly­wood. “It was a tough jour­ney. It is very tough for an out­sider to make a mark in Bol­ly­wood. But I al­ways had faith in the wishes of my par­ents. It cre­ated a path for me and made my jour­ney smooth,” Sonu says.

The ac­tor, who started out as a model, en­tered show­biz in 1999 with the Tamil film Kal­lazha­gar. Although a lot of his films such as Aashiq Banaya Aapne and Shee­sha failed, he con­tin­ued to do small but im­por­tant roles in films such as Jod­haa Ak­bar (2008), Singh Is Kinng (2008) and Da­bangg (2012).

The 43-year-old Nag­pur born ac­tor, who is pop­u­lar for his well-chis­elled body, will now be seen in a film along­side Hol­ly­wood ac­tor Jackie Chan. He has also stepped into the movie mak­ing busi­ness as a pro­ducer, and says that com­pe­ti­tion in Bol­ly­wood is fierce.

He says, “Ev­ery day you have to come up with some­thing new and bet­ter than other. It is tough. You have to be on your toes, and keep on en­ter­tain­ing peo­ple so that you can sur­vive. It is a tough field.”
