Sanya Malhotra, who currently has three films in her kitty, says her sense of achievement does not go to her head as her family and friends keep her grounded. She is currently busy working with National Award-winning filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj for his upcoming project Chhuriyaan, and has already finished shooting two films. She shot Badhaai Ho with Ayushmann Khurrana in her hometown Delhi
On the experience, Sanya Malhotra told an online news website during an interview earlier this month: "Delhi is the city I have been born and brought up in, so it holds a special place in my heart. This time when I visited the city for the shooting of my film, it was a very special feeling altogether"
"Dangal has changed our lives and when I was shooting on the streets of Gurgaon and NCR areas, it was like coming back home… However, the best part is that my friends and family keep me grounded," Sanya Malhotra said
"My equation has not changed with my close people. Neither my family nor my friends treat me like a ‘star' and I love it that way." Sanya Malhotra says while shooting, she used to visit places like the Moolchand flyover in Delhi for the ‘chhole bhature' along with the film's director and Ayushmann Khurrana
Sanya Malhotra has also finished shooting the film Photograph, directed by The Lunchbox director Ritesh Batra. She features in it with Nawazuddin Siddiqui. She says working with three different directors with a distinct approach towards storytelling taught her a lot on the job about her craft
Sanya Malhotra said in an interview last year that she would love to do a musical like Jagga Jasoos keeping in mind her love for dance. Sanya says that she wants to explore her love for both acting and dancing together. "I would choose both. I really like dancing, I did the choreography for Advait Chandan (director of Secret Superstar) because of Aamir Sir (Aamir Khan). At first, I thought it was a joke and when they followed up with me, that's when I believed it
