‘Jis din khush ho gai, I’ll pack my bags and go back to Delhi’
Dangal girl Sanya Malhotra says that she is never satisfied with her performance for it would stop her growth as an actor
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.
