Sonakshi Sinha had to spend a little more than ten years figuring out how to go through Bollywood and establish her voice. From portraying the subdued and proper heroine, she has now discovered comfort in pursuing roles for people who emotionally stir her insides and appeal to her. No matter if she’s portraying a cop in Reema Kagti’s programme, a role in movie Double XL, or a role in the upcoming online series Heera Mandi by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. She plays a very important role in the horror comedy Kakuda, despite the fact that she can hardly get through a horror movie as an audience member.
“Never, ever, do I want to do anything repetitive. I only try a different genre with each new piece of writing. like the area for horror-comedies. I don’t even like horror movies. Acting in one was difficult in that way. I have to say that it was enjoyable for me to be a member of the group. The procedure was extremely enjoyable. The task must provide some form of challenge for me today more than anything else. I can’t watch a horror-comedy, even after collaborating in one, believe me. Due of the intriguing things we accomplished, I will make an exception and watch Kakuda. In these movies, I’ve come to realise that a lot of things depend on visual effects. I often caught myself feeling or responding to things that were not there. I have to visualise them taking place or being present. The main obstacle in this area is that.
Sonakshi acknowledges that she is pulled to changes on every level after working in business for more than a decade. We have a lot of options and room for experimentation thanks to the opening of new routes, the consolidation of certain businesses, and the emergence of several content subgenres. I’ve worked in the South previously, for instance. Due to my obligations here, I haven’t worked on a project there in a while, but I’d like to look at something now. As a performer as well as a consumer, I just find that our content is so diverse now. It is astounding. Therefore, if I must accept an offer, it must weigh heavily on me, move me, and allow me to see myself carrying out the actions of the character in the film or television programme. I am drawn to a part through instinct. I’m now gravitating toward roles that make me happy as an artist.
Sonakshi has seldom ever portrayed a ferocious role in her years as an actor. She claims that Ittefaq was the nearest she has ever come to playing a bad character. “I desperately want to portray a wicked character. On film, I want to play a tough woman. I’d really want to go into anything of that nature. I haven’t truly portrayed a badass before. And the reason for it is because no one really writes that type of material for women. But I want to explore that territory. That’s a hurdle, and I definitely want to investigate that area in the future,” she concludes.
