B-town actor Sonakshi Sinha expressed happiness over Priyanka Chopra’s success in Hollywood. Heaping praise on Bollywood’s ‘Desi Girl’, Sinha credited Chopra for breaking all stereotypes and grabbing headlining roles in the West. Feeling it is not an easy task to venture into an alien film industry, she stated Priyanka has outdone herself in Hollywood.
“Priyanka has broken all barriers and I think she is doing fantastic there. Except for her, not many people have managed to break out into the West in a big way. But, she has done it and shown the world,” IANS quoted Sinha as saying.
While an international break is always touted as a big deal for Indian actors, the Dabangg star said she is happy working in her own country. According to Sinha, not every Indian actor who goes to Hollywood gets a significant role, reported Times of India. Standing by her statement, she revealed she has no plans of venturing into Hollywood and is looking forward to more opportunities in Indian cinema. “I am very happy over here. I feel Hollywood does not have great roles for Indian actors,” she said. The actor who is currently gearing up for her role in Akira mentioned promotions for the film will start soon.
Sinha released her debut single, Aaj Mood Ishqholic Hai, in December 2015 and plans to release another song soon.
