In a short interview with CS, Sonakshi talks about why the Indian girl look has been perfect for her.
Work is worship
I have been working round the clock since two years. The concept of ‘me time’ has vanished from my life. I love my work, and hence have no complaints. As of now, my ‘me time’ is the time I snooze. Listening to music and chatting with friends also helps me unwind after a hectic day.
When I see people discriminating against actresses due to their weight, I feel pretty distressed. I am a regular girl with a normal Indian body type. What’s so wrong with that? Even regular Indian girls can look beautiful. I believe that it is your talent that should get recognised at the end of the day.
Of young and old
There is not much of a difference in working with a young or old co-star. I have been lucky to share a good rapport with all of them. With young people, it is more fun as both of you are in a learning mode. My senior co-stars have been veterans in the industry and I have gained a lot from their wealth of experience.
My Indian girl looks have worked in my favour. I don’t see it as a weakness at all. People like me even in the rural parts of India. What more can I ask for? I am doing my tenth film in two-and-a-half years, which means that I must have been doing something right in my career. Touche!
I know that my films have funky titles and I love them. My favourite so far has to be Rowdy Rathore. I felt it was a superb title.
