Entertainment: 'I'm ageing in reverse' Sonakshi Sinha on her eight-year run

Almost exactly eight years ago, we first saw Sonakshi Sinha on the big screen opposite Salman Khan in Dabangg. By the end of this year, shell be shooting the third instalment of the hit franchise as Rajjo. Before that, the 31-year-old actress has stepped into another franchise director Mudassar Azizs Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi, a sequel to the 2016 sleeper hit Happy Bhag Jayegi, that starred Diana Penty in the title role. We caught up with Sonakshi in the office of Eros Entertainment to chat about her new film, sharing screen space with Rekha and reuniting with Salmans Chulbul Pandey.

Happy with where you are eight years after making your debut? I couldnt be happier. Its just been such an amazing journey that it doesnt feel like eight years. I dont feel any different from when I was 21, and doing my first film. I was 23 when that film released. I actually feel better now I feel more energetic, and everythings become really easy over the years. Ive become comfortable and feel like Im ageing in reverse. People start off being outspoken and outrageous, but I think Im becoming that now. Im enjoying every moment of it.

Are there lessons learnt or things you experienced that surprised you along the way? Yes, every days a new learning experience. Whatever Ive learnt, I have learnt on set because I never wanted to be an actor. I was a fat kid who lost weight and was put in a film with Salman Khan and there was no looking back from there. So, I never got to go to acting workshops and dance classes. Today, the kids who come in know their angles and how to pose for photographers. We didnt even have a paparazzi culture back then, but these days you find them waiting outside restaurants. So, whatever Ive learnt, Ive learnt through working and experience. And Im glad because all of that has put me in the place I am in today. The last few years have been disappointing in terms of box office. How do you deal with that and has it made you rethink your choices? Dealing with it is easy by the time the film has released, youve already moved on, youre shooting something else, youre invested in something new. And Im not the kind of person wholl stress about something thats not in my control. The audience has the complete right to accept or reject it and thats not in my hands. Today, my approach to every film is to treat it like my first film as an actor, its my job to give it 100 per cent and Ill do that for every film. The biggest of stars have gone through phases like this and theyre still standing strong. Its how you power through that eventually matters, and I honestly I dont feel like Im in that bad a space. You learn from it, try not to make the same mistakes again. Sometimes, there are things you think will work but the audience doesnt connect with... you try and build that understanding.
