Revealed: Why Sonakshi Sinha doesn’t kiss on-screen
Kissing on-screen has become common now but Sonakshi Sinha is the only actress in Bollywood who doesn’t kiss on-screen. The ‘Dabangg’ girl revealed as why she avoids kissing in her movies. Sonakshi said that she has inhibitions kissing on-screen.
Sonakshi Sinha told indianexpress.com, “Obviously there are inhibitions. That’s why I don’t do it in my films.”
Sonakshi, who will be next seen in AR Murugadoss’ upcoming action drama ‘Akira’ will see the actres doing some dare-devil stunts. Actresses fighting in films is a trend in Hollywood but now Bollywood actresses also following it.
Sonakshi said, “First of all I would like to take that as a compliment. To get compared with Hollywood is a big thing for me. I am happy that I have got noticed for my hard work. I went through a lot of physical training for this film as doing action, applying punches and kicking high is not an easy thing. You have to be fit and only then can you do such things. Also, actresses don’t get a chance to showcase their abilities and action in Bollywood. In Hollywood, they give actresses opportunities to do action and other stuff. I hope with Akira, actresses in Bollywood would start getting action roles and perform stunts.”
Apart from all, understanding the character is the most important factor for Sonakshi, “Getting into the mindset of the character was challenging for me. The pain, the situation she has been through and to portray that was not easy for me since I have never been in such a situation and I have never faced such an environment. And then, learning martial arts and doing stunts in the movie also took a lot out of me,” she said.
Sonakshi has always been criticised for not choosing performance-oriented roles but she feels Akira will change that perception. “It sometimes depends on the way you see it because people have appreciated me for the films that I have done and honestly, the positivity has been a lot more than the negativity. So I feel those films were very successful in their own way. Akira came to me at a point when I was doing something different and was up for taking a challenge like this. And I have moved in that direction. I think the shift has happened how the audiences have been seeing films, the way they make films. There has been a shift in our industry as well. So this came to me at the right time. And it wasn’t intentional or unintentional, it was just that a fact that I got a great role to play and I went ahead with it”.
‘Akira’ is all set to hit theatres on September 2.
