Sonakshi Says She Learnt ‘Everything From Scratch’

MUMBAI, (IANS) – Sonakshi Sinha has remembered how, despite being Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter, she had no experience of being on a film set and no formal training in acting or dancing, starting off “completely from scratch”.

She said, ” I had no experience of being on a film’s set. I never visited my dad on sets when I was a child, and I had no training in acting or dancing. I was not groomed for the profession. I was thrown into the deep end of the pool and was told to swim. That’s how I learned.”

Sinha went on to talk about how experiences have steered her professional career arc.

“Every experience for me is something to be cherished. Every person I have worked with I have learned a lot from, which has got me to a point where Sanjay Leela Bhansali (SLB) comes to me, he has the confidence in me to offer me a role like that of Fareedan, who is very complex,” Sinha said.

Sinha will soon be seen in SLB’s an upcoming period drama series ‘Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar’. She made her Bollywood debut in 2010 with the Salman Khan starrer action-comedy film ‘Dabangg’.

Speaking about her journey as an actor, she said, “I have been working for the past 14 years and I have done all sorts of roles. I started with these commercial masala sorts of films, where it was always about the ‘hero, hero and hero’, which I am not complaining about because it really gave me an audience and a wide reach.”

Continuing her career’s trajectory, Sinha said: “It gave me the confidence to shoulder films on my own as soon as I started playing strong female characters, which were different from what I was doing, whether it was in ‘Akira’, ‘Noor’ or ‘Dahaad’. I consciously chose roles I had not played before, and that really pushed me and challenged me as an actor.”

day on set. And that’s what keeps me going. I want to be a different person with every film. It keeps me excited about my job till today.”
