Lan­guage is no bar­rier for Sonakshi

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Pooja Sharma

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.
