Mumbai, June 2 -- After her debut film, Dabangg (2010), Sonakshi Sinha went on a movie-signing spree.
In her five years in the industry, she has already done 17 films. But now the actor, who turns 28 today (June 2), wants to go slow. All set for a working birthday, Sonakshi talks to us about the year gone by, her desire to do challenging roles, and more.
How was the last year for you?
For me, every day is valuable, and contributes to my career in some way or the other. When I look back, I realise that it's been a great year in many ways.
Any plans for your birthday?
Ever since I started working, I have only had working birthdays. This year is no different. I'll be working during the day, and will have a quiet dinner with my family and close friends at night. The only difference is that this year I have a new family member to join in the celebrations... my bhabhi (sister-in-law).
While you were doing back-to-back films in your initial years in the industry, of late, you have not signed too many. Is this your new approach?
I'm enjoying the process of doing one film at a time. It's something I haven't done since I joined the industry. Now, I want to take it slow, and take up more challenging roles.
You will also be seen judging a kids' singing reality show. Do you have a game plan?
I haven't started judging them as yet. I don't want to scare them for sure. They are all so talented, I just want to encourage them, and boost their confidence.
What's the status of your home production? Will you be acting in it?
Currently, we are evaluating some scripts. We'll make an announcement when we find what we are looking for. I would love to be part of our production house's first film.
Do you plan to settle down anytime soon?
No. I feel there's so much more to conquer on the work front. Once I've done that, I'll think about settling down.
Your next is a women-oriented action film. Are such films physically draining?
I've had the maximum number of injuries while working on this film. But luckily, they've all healed. I'm enjoying every bit of the process.
