Star kids also lose films to others, says Sonakshi Sinha

Nepotism in the Indian film industry has always been a topic to discuss. Bollywood starlet Sonakshi Sinha threw some shade at the outsiders in the Indian film industry. In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, the Lootera star discussed how not only outsiders in the industry but even star kids lose films to other actors. Sinha admitted to losing out on films and called it ‘part and parcel of the job’. 

“Of course. Who hasn’t?” the Dabangg star commented. “Like this whole star kid debate is useless because it is not like no star kid hasn’t lost out on a project because of somebody else. But nobody goes around crying about it. It’s okay, it happens to everyone. Deal with it, dude. That’s life. There is no point talking about spilled milk.”

Sinha went on to add, “Forget me. My father also, who was not a star kid, has lost out on many projects. It happens to every actor, it’s part and parcel of the job. It’s not something that is so unheard of or so new, it happens to everyone and it has been happening. As I said, it’s part and parcel of the job, you move on with your life, work hard and keep at it.”

When asked how she’s tackled it the last 11 years, the actor said, “First, it is important to pinpoint what is important to your life? Do these things play a part in the work that I’m supposed to be doing? They don’t. Then take them out.” She added, “Focus on your work, work hard. Think of each new project as your first one. Put in that much effort as you did on day one and I think that is what will sail through.”  

Sinha also shared that hectic shoot schedules prior to Covid-19 would never allow her to do the things she loved. However, in 2020, the pandemic helped her reconnect with art. “I found my solace with art and painting. I’m happy that I rediscovered it. It calms me down.” She added, “I make time to hang out with my friends. I realised a few years back that you have to make time for things that are important to you otherwise you just get lost in your work.”
