The one-film old Sonakshi Sinha is giving other actresses a run for their money by bagging endorsements and big films, but the Dabangg girl says she doesn't consider herself as part of the competition.
"I don't look at it that way. I think everybody here has something to offer. Everyone has their own charm and their own personality. Everybody brings something new and something different for the audience. I don't believe in competition," Sonakshi said. She was in the capital on Wednesday for the launch of new Pantene Hair Control shampoo.
She has got a fat role in Race 2, which was supposed to be played by Katrina Kaif. The 24-year-old has a practical outlook about someone stepping into someone else's shoes.
"If someone is not able to do a film, someone else has to take his or her place. It's just being at the right place at the right time," she said.
Right now her kitty is full of films. She is shooting for Shirish Kunder's Joker and is about to start shooting for Rowdy Rathore, both of which have Akshay Kumar as her co-star. Then she has Race 2 and Son of Sardar.
The actress, who debuted with Salman Khan in Dabangg, has got another film called Kick with the star.
"I am happy that I am working with some of the best and I consider myself very fortunate enough to have got such a chance," she said.
Sonakshi's rumoured cold war with actress Neetu Chandra and Anushka Sharma being miffed with her over her growing proximity with actor Ranveer Singh have been the talk of B-town - however, Sonakshi doesn't care about it any more.
"I don't take such rumours seriously. I have stopped reading the newspapers and I am very happy. I used to feel bad initially but now I believe it is better to let people talk about you rather than not talk about you at all. I just turn a deaf ear and carry on with my work," she said with a carefree attitude.(This story has not been edited by News18 staff and is published from a syndicated news agency feed)
