Sonakshi Sinha might be just one film old, yet she is capable enough to give a tough competition to her contemporaries. Yes, the Dabangg girl Sonakshi is spreading her wings and has bagged many big projects and brand endorsements. But all these things have not spoilt her and she still believes that she is grounded. Moreover her family and friends at least try to make her realize this.
However, she doesn’t feel that she is a part of cat race of B town. “I don’t look at it that way. I think everybody here has something to offer. Everyone has their own charm and their own personality. Everybody brings something new and something different for the audience. I don’t believe in competition,” Sonakshi said. She was in the capital on Wednesday for the launch of new Pantene Hair Control shampoo.
It was Katrina Kaif in ‘Race’ but now it is Sonakshi who is playing a meatier role in ‘Race 2’. This role was initially offered to Katrina but somehow she couldn’t work on this. But the 24 year old Sona baby has a practical outlook when it comes to her profession. So stepping in someone else’s shoes is not an issue for her.
“If someone is not able to do a film, someone else has to take his or her place. It’s just being at the right place at the right time,” she said.
Right now her kitty is full of films. She is shooting for Shirish Kunder’s Joker and is about to start shooting for Rowdy Rathore, both of which have Akshay Kumar as her co-star. Then she has Race 2 and Son of Sardar.
The actress, who debuted with Salman Khan in Dabangg, has got another film called Kick with Sallu bhai.
“I am happy that I am working with some of the best and I consider myself very fortunate enough to have got such a chance,” she said.
Sonakshi’s rumored cold war with actress Neetu Chandra and Anushka Sharma being miffed with her over her growing proximity with actor Ranveer Singh have been the talk of B-town – however, Sonakshi doesn’t care about it anymore.
“I don’t take such rumors seriously. I have stopped reading the newspapers and I am very happy. I used to feel bad initially but now I believe it is better to let people talk about you rather than not talk about you at all. I just turn a deaf ear and carry on with my work,” she said with a carefree attitude.
