Sonakshi Sinha is the B-Town actress with maximum film releases in 2013. The 26-year-old, who debuted in 2010, has done more films — 12 — than actresses who entered Bollywood before her.
She has acquired the reputation of being one of the workaholics, like Akshay Kumar, with whom she has done three films (and three cameo songs). The 12 films include a special appearance in Oh My God! in 2012, and three item songs (two in Boss and one in Himmatwala).
Next year she will have three releases with Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn and Arjun Kapoor. Does she plan to go on a signing spree and chalk up most releases again next year? She laughs, “Signing spree? No! I just feel most comfortable when I am working. It’s been a good year for me because I got to do good films. I also did three of my best roles in my career — Lootera, R…Rajkumar and Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobara. I also worked with new actors like Ranbir Kapoor, Imran Khan and Shahid Kapoor.”
The actress disagrees with the fact that she’s signing too many films and becoming the female equivalent of Akshay, who has maximum number of releases every year. “Though I take it as a huge compliment to be compared to Akshay, as he is one of the most hard working stars I know, I must add that I always sign a film instinctively and only if I feel very strongly about it. I don’t sign a film just for the sake of it. Just because people feel I am taking on too much work I can’t stop saying no to good roles or films, no?”
Sonakshi adds that she gets bored and restless when she is not working. “This is the only way I know to work — by being superbusy! When I have a free day, I don’t know what to do with myself. I would rather just be working.”
Anushka Sharma who made her debut two years before Sonakshi (2008) has done seven films so far — Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Badmaash Company, Band Baaja Baaraat, Patiala House, Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola.
Parineeti Chopra who made her debut a year after Sona (2011) has three releases — Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, Ishaqzaade and Shuddh Desi Romance.
Shraddha Kapoor made her debut at the same time as the Dabangg girl (Teen Patti in 2010) and after that has acted in three films — Luv Ka The End, Aashiqui 2 and Gori Tere Pyaar Mein.
