Sonu Sood’s tough journey
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.”
