The country as a whole cannot afford another lockdown: Sonakshi Sinha


The new year began with a rapid rise in Covid-19 cases, affecting our lives yet again, and showbiz is not untouched either.
Film releases have been postponed, shoots have been affected. Actor Sonakshi Sinha, who has a busy year in terms of projects, worries about the debilitating impact a third lockdown would have on the film industry.
“Not only the film industry, everyone has been badly hit [by the pandemic] in terms of jobs, taking care of their family.
The country as a whole cannot afford a lockdown. It is up to us also to be careful and responsible as a citizen to stop the spread as much as we can. I believe people are taking this seriously and they should for the sake of everyone else.
Hopefully we won’t have to move into a lockdown,” says the 34-year-old.
On the professional front, things are shaping up exactly how she wants though.
Apart from making her web debut with Reema Kagti’s Fallen, she will star in Double XL with Huma Qureshi, and also has the horror comedy Kakuda in the pipeline.
Sinha, who is now losing the weight she had put on for Double XL, tells us, “I am rejuvenated to start this year. 2021 professionally was so good for me. I finished three projects. Now I am getting in shape for my next project, I hopefully start work on it by February.”
Having started her career with a commercial film like Dabangg (2010), the actor has come a long way, taking up projects which offered her more meat. She says this was the right time to experiment.
“This very exciting phase has come at such a perfect time, just when I was warming up and doing projects, experimenting with roles.
After 10 years of working, you want to do something different,” tells us Sinha. However, the one project which isn’t happening now is Bulbull Tarang, which has been shelved due to the delays caused by the pandemic. Sinha clarifies, “It was because of the pandemic.
It had gotten pushed a lot, there were many actors involved so it was difficult for everyone’s dates to come together again.”
