Language is no barrier for Sonakshi
Sonakshi Sinha recently wrapped up the shoot for Ittefaq, and is currently in New York shooting for a stage reality film. Ask her if she’d like to add to her Bollywood repertoire by acting in foreign or regional cinema, and she says, “All I’m looking for are good roles and great stories, whether I get them in Hindi films, regional cinema or foreign projects. I’m open to hearing them out and taking a call. The language of a film or which industry is it from, has never been a barrier in choosing my projects.” The actor, who has also judged reality shows on television, gives her view on the debate around talenthunts on TV. “Talent-hunt reality shows have my vote hands down. It’s so interesting to watch all the talent that’s out there in our country, and all over the world. Young kids give performances that some of the greatest artists can’t. It’s amazing to be able to watch such mind-blowing performances, which are so professional, of broadway standards, which otherwise, all over the world you have to pay for to watch. We get to watch them on our TV screens. I feel happy when good artists get their dues and recognition,” says Sonakshi, but adds that our TV content gets repetitive. “Due to commercial pressure, we seldom experiment,” she says.
