Sonakshi Sinha says her father never called any producer and said ‘Take my daughter in your film’

Actress Sonakshi Sinha opens up about ongoing nepotism and insider vs outsider debate and her life after leaving Twitter.

Actress Sonakshi Sinha left Twitter two months ago, when the internet trolls targeted her. The actress opened about leaving the toxicity behind and feeling better in her life after going off the social media. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Sonakshi talked about the ongoing nepotism as well as insider vs outsider debate.

When she was asked about missing being on Twitter, she said, “More than the buzz, it was a buzz kill. Twitter has become such a playing ground for negativity with people going on and on about anything and everything and in such a gutsy manner.” She added that her life has become better and she has no complaints. “My life has changed for the better, it’s much cleaner, so I have no complaints. And I’ve also put my comments off on Instagram.”

Talking about the insider vs outsider debate, she calls the insider vs outsider debate, a “herd mentality.” Sonakshi talked about how audience can make or break an actor’s career. She added, “Nobody likes to hear abuses about themselves for what — for being actors? For being born to a particular set of parents? I’m sorry! Where’s the logic in that? It’s been blown so much out of proportion. Has anybody really counted — today there are more outsiders than so called insiders in the industry, who have made it very big and have lots of work, more than people who’re grown up in any film family. Why nobody raises that point? So, there’s a lot of misdirected anger about a lot of things, a herd mentality and people are being ‘bhadkaoed’,”

When asked about her take on nepotism, she talked about Kangana and how her father never called up any producer.  She added, “I find it so amusing that this word nepotism has been introduced and sensationalized by a person whose sister is managing their work. And I don’t think I really want to give it that much more importance. Having said that, my father (Shatrughan Sinha) has never picked up the phone and called any producer to say, ‘Take my daughter in your film’.”

On the work front, Sonakshi will be seen in the movie, Bhuj where she plays the role of Sunderben Jetha Madharparya, the brave social worker who took 299 women along with her to support the Indian Army.
