Sonakshi Sinha doesn’t have any career regrets


From playing the quintessential ‘desi girl’ to doing action-packed characters, Sonakshi Sinha has come a long way in her career and the actress says she is now ready to push her limits as a performer. Sonakshi, who made her debut with Salman Khan-starrer “Dabangg,” became known for her roles in big-budget commercial films in the beginning of her career but she has no regrets.

“I have grown with every film. I learn something from every person I work with. I really believe in learning from experience. I have had a really eventful and fruitful journey since I started. I don’t have any regrets in my career,” she told PTI.

“When you start with film like ‘Dabangg’ you are automatically put in that commercial bracket. I was picked up for my looks. Those were the kind of films that were offered to me. I was happy to be a part these films. These films gave me a chance to work with the best people in the industry.”

After starring in commercial entertainers like “Rowdy Rathore” and “Action Jackson”, Sonakshi surprised with her performance in “Lootera”, which won her critical acclaim. The actress, 29, says she is now in a zone where she just wants to do roles that push her limits. “I have made a decision that now I want to roles that push my limits. I want to show something new from me to the audience. Next I am playing a journalist in ‘Noor’ and then I am playing a character with a grey shade in ‘Ittefaq’. There are a lot of interesting things happening.”

Sonakshi ventured into action films with her last release “Akira” and now she is a part of “Force 2”. The actress says the shift was not intentional and she chose the films because they offered her a chance to play strong independent women. “I love action films in general. I didn’t like boys having all the fun. I feel it is a great time for actresses as action roles are being written keeping them in mind. The kind of feedback I am getting in action genre has been very positive and I would love to do more of such projects.”

Now no formula hundred per cent assures you a big hit.”
