Sonakshi Sinha Likes Competition In Every Field
Sonakshi Sinha, who is relatively new to the film industry and working hard to play long innings in showbiz, says she never tries to race ahead of her contemporaries. Her success mantra is “hard work” and “minding your own business”.
“I believe in healthy competition. I find certain actresses very good and fresh on screen like Deepika (Padukone), Anushka (Sharma) and Parineeti (Chopra). Everyone is here to do hard work and a good job. I don’t try to go ahead of them. I don’t think of it like that. I think minding your own business is the right way to go,” she said.
Needless to say, today she has carved a niche for herself and is loved by many for her unique style and screen presence. On being quizzed when did she first find herself to be pretty, she shared, “I didn’t realize it till I was about 21. Having always been on the heavier side, it never occurred to me that I was pretty. Whenever I looked in the mirror, all I saw was a fat girl. But it never bogged me down. I was confident. My interests lay in fashion designing”.
Speaking over how the detractors slam her generous form, she said, “I have faced this all my life. People have hardly referred to me by my name. They have called me moti, fatty, bhens (buffalo)… But it doesn’t bother me. Five people out of a hundred calling me overweight don’t get me less work. My weight’s perfect for my age, height and body type”.
In “Dabangg”, Sonakshi played a ‘desi’ girl who marries Salman’s character Chulbul Pandey and says that her character “will be more mature this time”.
