Great time to be a girl in the industry: Sona
From a simpleton to action-oriented roles, actor Sonakshi Sinha (above), who has explored a variety of characters in Bollywood, says it’s a great time to be a girl in the industry as filmmakers are increasingly exploring women-centric movies.
Sonakshi, who made her Bollywood debut alongside actor Salman Khan with Dabangg (2010), has been on a roll ever since. She has featured in actionpacked stunts in films like Akira (2016) and Force 2 (2016).
“It’s a great time to be a girl in the industry because there are such wonderful roles being written for us,” said Sonakshi.
The 29-year-old, who has also been a part of films like Lootera (2013) and Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty (2014), has clocked over half a dozen years in the Hindi film industry. And it’s been a learning experience for her. “Very eventful,” she said when asked to describe her journey. “I have learnt a lot...It has been a great learning process. And that’s how I look at it.”
However, the daughter of veteran actor and politician Shatrughan Sinha and actor Poonam Sinha, Sonakshi had started her career as a costume designer.
