    "When you are offered roles like that, I personally don't look at them as objectification, but yes, I do feel that I got typecast. It was not out of choice. It was not that I chose those parts and I only wanted to play glamorous, sexy characters," Sonnalli told IANS.

    Well, only glamorous characters have kept coming her way, confessed Sonnalli. "Somewhere it got broken in Highjack and Setters, because of Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2. My role in Pyaar Ka Punchnama 1 was extremely uber glamorous, model type. Also because I am from a modelling background and I have been a Miss India, so it was easy for Luv sir (Luv Ranjan, director) to see me like that initially," said the actress.

    Sonnalli further added, "It was only in Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2, that it was broken a little bit, perhaps not in the terms of the look, but character. That's what led to my characters in Highjack and Setters, where I've played a pilot and cop, respectively."

    She refused to name the director as his "vision did not work" for her. "I wouldn't deny that when I had entered the industry long time ago, I had faced similar problems... that I was too skinny. I wouldn't deny that it did cross my mind then to go through unnatural procedures to enhance certain features. But I am glad that I didn't go ahead with it, instead I worked really hard on my body and ate well."

    "Because Sanjh is not like me at all. As an actor, I feel unsatisfied when I only keep getting sexy and glamorous roles, which don't explore other things that I may have to offer. But this film will take care of that. I really hope to get meatier roles in the future," she said.
