Sonakshi speaks up: Have been trying to prove time & again ‘main acchhi actor hoon'


by IANS |

Actress Sonakshi Sinha hopes that with her latest work in “Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar” filmmakers see her in a different light as she says she has been trying to prove that she is a good actor.

Sonakshi was in New Delhi for the trailer launch of Bhansli’s debut series, where she talked about how she has been presented in a different light.

Asked if she feels that casting directors and filmmakers will now see you in a different light and maybe take her even more seriously, Sonakshi said: “Sure as hell I hope so! what more a girl has to do? I have been trying to prove time and again that ‘main achi actor hun bhai’.”

However, she did credit some of the wonderful opportunities that her come her way since her debut in the 2010 Salman Khan-starrer ‘Dabangg’.

“I have been given some wonderful opportunities I can’t entirely put a pin on one thing it could be the choice of films, the makers I have worked with. But I truly believe that I have learnt something from every experience I have had professionally which has made me the actor I am today and worthy enough of Sanjay sir’s world,” she said.

Sonakshi made no bones about how it’s every actor's dream to be seen in a different light by filmmakers.

“Every actor has a dream that a director sees them in a different light…”

With “Heeramandi” set to release, Sonakshi says her “mission” now is to directors, who project her in a way no one else has seen before.

“I want to do powerful roles… and that has been my agenda in the last few years,” she said.

“Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar” will be released on Netflix on May 1.
