BOLLYWOOD HOLLYWOOD TELEVISION MUSIC ‘NOT WRONG TO GO ASK FOR WORK’
...says Sana Khan who won’t settle down for average work
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.
