After mostly playing the quintessential desi girl in big-budget commercial films, actress Sonakshi Sinha feels it is time for her to do more performance-oriented movies.
The 27-year-old star’s filmography boasts of commercial films like Dabangg, Rowdy Rathore, Action Jackson, with an exception of Lootera, an intense love story which got her critical-acclaim.
“I am ready for performance-oriented films. I feel the time has come for me to make the switch. Earlier, I was establishing myself. In 2015, I am doing a film with AR Murugadoss, which is a woman-centric film. It has a great story and I am looking forward to it,” Sonakshi told PTI.
The actress, however, feels that doing commercial films was not a conscious decision and it was more because she enjoys such films as a viewer.
“I did mass entertainers because I love watching these films myself. There was no strategy involved in doing commercial movies. People forget that I am still new, it has just been 4 years, though I have done 12 films. There is a lot of time for me to explore myself and do different stuff. In big-budget films too, my performances were appreciated.”
Sonakshi is famous for playing the village belle or the small town girl in most of her films but she does not feel stereotyped.
“I have played small town girl in many of my films but I never felt typecast because I think my Indian-ness is my strength. You put me in any state and I will become a part of it. I believe it is my biggest strength,” she said.
