After two back-to-back hits, Dabangg and Rowdy Rathore, Sonakshi Sinha’s Joker failed to set the cash registers ringing. However, the actor is unperturbed and says she handles both success and failure in the same manner.
“I think the best way is to take success and failure in the same stride. Both come one after the other,” she told IANS in a group interview.
“I have been fortunate that my films have done well. So I don’t really go and shout on the rooftop that my film crossed INR1 billion, nor do I cry when my film doesn’t do well. I do this [acting] because I enjoy my work,” she added.
The failure of Joker has not hampered her in any way as she said: “I was a part of the film. Everybody who is connected to a film, which doesn’t do well, is affected. I treat my success, the same way I treat my failures.”
Meanwhile, the actor is gearing up for the release of her new film Son of Sardaar, opposite Ajay Devgn. Directed by Ashwni Dhir, the film also stars Sanjay Dutt and Juhi Chawla. In the film, Sonakshi plays a typical Punjabi girl and has also performed various bike stunts in the film.
“It was fun and a completely different experience. The character is very colourful and vibrant. I am doing a lot in this movie, which I have not done before like action and riding a bike,” she said.
Son Of Sardaar is set to release November 13, the same date as the late film-maker Yash Chopra’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan. Though Sonakshi is saddened by the legendary film-maker’s sudden demise, she doesn’t believe that the simultaneous release will have any effect on the two films.
