I treat success, failure similarly: Sonakshi Sinha

  • Print


Success has ruined more people than failure, believes actress Sonakshi Sinha, who says she neither shouts from the rooftop when her films do well, nor does she sit in the dark and cry over her movie debacles.
“I have been brought up in a way that I treat success and failure in the same way,” the actress told IANS while promoting her forthcoming film Noor.
“Somebody once said, ‘success has ruined more people than failure.’ So it’s very important to learn from mistakes and not dwell on them. When I had my huge successes, I never got on to a rooftop and shouted that my films are a hit; and in the case of failures, I don’t sit in a corner and cry about them.”
“You move on and do your next film,” added Sonakshi.
The 29-year-old, who is the daughter of actor-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha and Poonam Sinha, made her debut with Dabangg, a film that starred Salman Khan.
Subsequently, she delivered hits like Rowdy Rathore and Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty and a female-driven film like Akira. She also tried her hand at a different genre with Lootera, which gave her a chance to show her range as an actor.
She will next be seen playing a journalist in Noo, scheduled for a worldwide release on April 21.
Sonakshi credits her past work for helping her reach a point in Bollywood where she is getting to play title roles.
“I feel my journey in Bollywood has been great. Some of the initial roles I did have put me in a position today where I shoulder a film like Akira by myself. I have played two title roles and it is really exciting to be able to do that.”
“Honestly, the films that I have done in the past have put me in a position that I can do roles like Noor today,” she said.
