Sonakshi feels liberated to carry a film on her shoulders


Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha, who featured in the primary role in “Akira” and is now the central character in “Noor” — both movies without a ‘hero’ — says carrying a film solely on her shoulders isn’t difficult, but rather liberating for her.

“I don’t know whether it is difficult or easy, but I feel liberated when I promote the film. I felt this at the time when I was promoting ‘Akira’. I don’t have to depend on anybody to carry this film. I have a solid team to support and other than this, I don’t need anybody else,” Sonakshi said at the trailer launch of her upcoming film “Noor.”

“I feel like I am independent, strong and moving ahead with my team. This is the best feeling that I can carry a film on my own shoulders,” she added.

In “Noor”, Sonakshi plays the role of a journalist who wants to cover a real life incident, but is forced to go for a celebrity’s interview.

Talking about the character, the 29-year-old actress said: “I have a lot of respect towards this profession. It is not an easy job to become a journalist. Hats off to all of you.

“For a journalist, it is his/her duty to ask any kind of question and as an actress, it is my prerogative to answer or avoid. Even fans ask weird questions. My regard for this profession has grown much more after doing ‘Noor’ and I will try to answer every question from now on,” Sonakshi said with a smile.

Sunhil Sippy has helmed “Noor”, which is a Bollywood adaptation of a Pakistani novel. The film is releasing on April 21.
