Ac­tor Sonam Ba­jwa (right) is rid­ing high on the suc­cess on her re­cently re­leased Pun­jabi film, Su­per Singh, where she shared screen space with ac­tor-singer Diljit Dosanjh. While the 27-year-old ac­tor has plenty of Pun­jabi films to her credit, it’s sur­pris­ing that her Bol­ly­wood de­but is still awaited.

“I’ve done a cou­ple of meet­ings for Hindi films, but haven’t come across any­thing in­ter­est­ing enough that would com­pel me to take up the role. I’m wait­ing for the right script. In my Bol­ly­wood de­but, I want to do some­thing im­pact­ful,” says Sonam.

Among the different gen­res of films in Bol­ly­wood, Sonam feels that the art house cin­ema has de­vel­oped a niche au­di­ence. Ask her about the kind of film she wants to do as her de­but, and the ac­tor says, “I haven’t thought whether I want to take up some­thing out and out com­mer­cial or artsy. I just want to do a good film.”

The ac­tor, who has kept all op­tions open in terms of the film of­fers, says, “Some­times you get scripts, which aren’t wor­thy of do­ing. I don’t have a closed mind with the thought that I just want to do a par­tic­u­lar kind of film. I want to do some­thing that makes me com­fort­able.”
