Great time to be a girl in the in­dus­try: Sona

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

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.
