'I want to be talked about for my films, not my personal life'
Actress Sonakshi Sinha has been in the limelight since making her debut with 'Dabangg' in 2010, be it for her figure or the men she is supposed to be dating. With four of her films due to hit the theatres this year, the 24-year-old actress says she does not have a personal life and would rather talk about her films
"I want to be talked about for the films I am doing than a party I attended, the dress I wore and the men I may have met and dated. In any case, by and large I think I have spoken about more for the profession I am in than my personal life. That's the way I like it because frankly, I don't really have a personal life to begin with," Sonakshi said.
When asked how she deals with all the talking about her, she said, "One thing which I know about this world of glamour is that it is better to have people talking about you than not being talked about at all. It is okay, they are doing their job; I would continue to do mine. I can't have control over what others think or say about you."
The daughter of actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha has quite a hectic schedule as four of her films 'Rowdy Rathore', 'Joker', 'Son of Sardar' and 'Dabangg 2' are in the offing. "You feel stressed when you think that you are working. When I am doing movies, I don't feel that way at all. When I wake up in the morning and then get dressed up for the job, I feel good because this is what I want. I am the happiest that way and honestly, if at all I get a day or two off, I get restless," Sonakshi said.
The actress also said that she is happy to be balancing her career by making some well thought of choices, like 'Rowdy Rathore' opposite Akshay Kumar. The film is the Hindi remake of Telugu film 'Vikramarkudu'. "When I watch a film, I watch it as an audience instead of thinking as an actor or an intellectual. I see whether it made me laugh, get involved or shocked me at certain points. Something has to stir inside me. This is what 'Vikramarkudu', the original Telugu version of 'Rowdy Rathore', did to me. I enjoyed it's masaledar flavour every bit as it was pretty much packed with action, romance, drama and comedy. I knew there and then that it was a great film to be a part of," she said.
