Actress Sonakshi Sinha completed 10 years in Bollywood, and she says she is grateful for every film and every experience — good or bad.
“10 years and counting… I can’t believe it’s been 10 whole years since i first appeared on the silver screen. I remember being so unsure if this is really what i even wanted to do… but you know what erased all that doubt? The love I received from all of YOU,” Sonakshi wrote on Instagram.
“Your love encouraged me, your criticism pushed me to do better. My hard work sustained me, and my respect for my work nudged me forward. My enthusiasm on set aided me, my hunger to learn propelled me. Here I am, 10 years down the line, so grateful for every film, every experience – good or bad, every person i have ever worked with! Thank you! Thank you to this industry, thank you to my audience, and thank you universe! This is just the beginning,” she added.
The actress also shared a short clip of the roles she has played in her career.
Sonakshi, daughter of actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha and Poonam Sinha, entered Bollywood with Salman Khan’s “Dabangg”, which released on September 10 in 2010.
After making a successful debut with “Dabangg”, she went on to star in films like “Rowdy Rathore”, “Lootera”, “Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty”, “Akira”, “Noor”, “Force 2”, besides two sequels in the “Dabangg” series.
She will soon be seen in “Bhuj: The Pride Of India”. The film also stars Ajay Devgn, Sanjay Dutt, Sharad Kelkar, Ammy Virk and Pranitha Subhash.
Sonakshi Sinha says she is not fretting about getting back to work, or how the industry will change in the Covid era.
The actress shared that she is loving the lockdown life for now.
“I am just going to admit that I am loving lockdown life. In the last 10 years, I haven’t gotten a break for so long, where I have been able to spend time with myself, understand what I want from life, do the things I like to do and just be one with yourself, sort your head out, contemplate and understand what’s important and what’s not important in life. I’m really loving it,” Sonakshi said.
“I am not worried about when work will start, and how it will be. I know it’s going to be difficult going back to the set, with ‘what you are touching’, ‘don’t touch your face’, and with people in PPE kits. I did one photoshoot and it was so strange being around people who are covered up head to toe and you are the only one open. You are like ‘keep your hands to yourself and don’t touch your face’, sanitise every five minutes. It’s really weird,” she added.
The actress is “keeping that worry aside and doing what makes me happy at the moment”, she said, explaining it refers to “my art and painting, endless conversations with friends and spending time with family”.
“Right now, everybody is in the same boat. It will start when it has to start and we will move on with this and get over it,” she added.
Talking about her binge-watch list, Sonakshi said: “I watched so many things that I am fed up of watching anything now.”
“I watched ‘Talaash’ again because I am doing a show with Reema Katgi and I love that film. I want to read but I don’t have the patience to sit down with a book. When I do my cardio, I need to have something in front of me to watch otherwise I hate doing cardio. I wish we had finished Reema’s web show. It was such an exciting role for me. I can’t wait to get back,” she said in an episode of the show “Zoom Happy Space With Rudrani”.
