Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - Monika Rawal

Ac­tor Sana Khan (left) be­came a house­hold name in 2012, after she par­tic­i­pated in one of the most con­tro­ver­sial re­al­ity shows on In­dian tele­vi­sion. She later starred in Sal­man Khan’s film Jai Ho (2014) and then fol­lowed a long wait be­fore she made a come­back in Wa­jah Tum Ho (2016). About her long hia­tus she says, “I’m tak­ing my own time, but I don’t want to just re­lax ei­ther. I’m try­ing to tar­get the right project that takes me a level higher.” Sana says there’s noth­ing wrong in not hav­ing work. “Just be­cause I’m sit­ting idle at home or just to an­swer the ques­tions from press, I won’t take any of­fer that comes my way. If I’m free for three years, I am free, if I have no projects, I don’t have. There’s noth­ing wrong in go­ing and ask­ing peo­ple for work, be­cause that’s what we do. We are ask­ing, not beg­ging for money. As ac­tors, we sell and present our­selves.”

The 29-year-old ac­tor also as­serts that it’s im­por­tant to be around for film­mak­ers to no­tice, so they can cast you when­ever there’s a suit­able role. “I might not be their (film­mak­ers) op­tion when they think of an ac­tor, be­cause my ex­is­tence has not been that great so far. But I have to keep pro­mot­ing my­self and let peo­ple know that I am avail­able,” she says.
