Ac­tor Sanya Mal­ho­tra (right) shot to fame af­ter she played Aamir Khan’s on-screen daugh­ter in her de­but film Dan­gal (2016). Even af­ter four months of the film’s re­lease, Sanya feels ter­ri­ble if some­one calls her lucky to have bagged the op­por­tu­nity to be a part of such a path break­ing film. “I feel I’m blessed be­cause I worked re­ally hard. Luck toh nahi hai, kafi mehnat kari hai iske liye. I’m blessed for the kind of peo­ple I got to work with in my first film,” says Sanya.

A few days ago, there were re­ports that the ac­tor wasn’t too sat­is­fied with her per­for­mance. On be­ing prod­ded fur­ther, she says, “I’m never happy with my per­for­mance. Even for the bal­let dance video that I posted on my In­sta­gram, I asked some hun­dred peo­ple be­fore post­ing it, whether I should do it or not. I didn’t like the chore­og­ra­phy that I did. So yes, I’m never con­tent, which I feel is good for me.”

The ac­tor laughs that the day she be­comes sat­is­fied with the work, she will head home to Delhi. “I shouldn’t be happy be­cause jis din khush ho gai, I will pack my bags and go back to Delhi and do some­thing else. If you feel sat­is­fied, growth ruk jaati hai,” feels the ac­tor, who has also shared this thought with her men­tor Aamir Khan. To this, Sanya says that Aamir had writ­ten a two-page let­ter to ap­pre­ci­ate her pres­ence in the film. How­ever, Sanya agrees that af­ter a film like Dan­gal, more doors have now opened for her in the film in­dus­try. “Dan­gal was the best film to get at the be­gin­ning of my ca­reer. Hon­estly, I didn’t ex­pect the film to get this kind of re­ac­tion. I thought I will have to start from zero again, but I’m happy to see the adu­la­tion that the film has re­ceived,” says Sanya.

I shouldn’t be happy be­cause jis din khush ho gai, I will pack my bags and go back to Delhi and do some­thing else SANYA MAL­HO­TRA, AC­TOR
