m. For me sleep was more important so I would continue with my nap I think both of us were learning and grew together Doing a workshop before the film really helped He is quite a shy person so it was only during our 45 -day stint in Patiala that he began to open up After that he was very chilled out and helpful” However in the near future they are not teaming up for another film “Sabir sir also wanted us to work together But I think there should be a gap before you repeat the same pair which is the reason that we have not signed another film together” As for the projects she has signed opposite other co-stars there’s Akshay Kumar’s home production Singh Is Bling and directors Raj Nidimoru and DK’s next venture titled Farzi opposite Shahid Kapoor This besides a few other projects she is reportedly in talks for namely Housefull 3 and Raees although she denies any such developments while admitting that she would be thrilled if such a scenario worked out “Shah Rukh Khan is someone you may get an opportunity to work with once in a lifetime but nothing of the sort has come up” she clarifies Sanon a Delhi lass had not set her sights for a showbiz innings—she trained as a computer engineer—but her good looks led her to a modelling career before she was spotted and selected for Heropanti She did however cut her teeth in acting by doing a few Telugu films before venturing into Hindi film industry The actress recalls with amusement her days of working in a language she could not even comprehend “I don’t even understand Telugu Earlier when it came to saying my lines they would tell me to just say 1234 and get it dubbed later But now with sync sound I am expected to learn my lines so that the lip sync looks correct The final dubbing is done by a person who knows the language fluently otherwise the audience will immediately recognise the fact that I am not well versed with the language Just like you know if a person is unfamiliar with Hindi tries to speak it I try to understand the meaning of what is being said so that I can emote accordingly” For Hindi filmsher preparations are in other departments— she is presently learning dance and prepping for some actions scenes with martial arts classes “I play a dance teacher in Singh Is Bling which is why I need to learn professional dance I had met Ashvini Yardi and Sajid sir (Nadiadwala for Heropanti) who needed someone who could dance as well as perform action scenes For action I guess taller girls probably work better” Interestingly enough Sanon has strong opinions and a good sense of scripts that might work well for her “If the script is strong the film can’t go wrong When I hear the script I react like the audience If I like the story and want to watch it I will probably go ahead and sign up especially if my part in it is good If it feels different I just go for it” The success or failure of the director’s earlier film does not necessarily affect her decisions and Sanon says she is excited about working in Raj and DK’s Farzi despite the debacle of their romcom Happy Ending “Farzi is a thriller and when I heard the script I found it very interesting When I saw the trailer of Happy Ending I was very excited because it is after a long time that an urban romantic comedy was releasing There are so many films made about small towns that it has all started looking very similar And if one of my film doesn’t work then that doesn’t mean that I have no talent That sort of an attitude is not right Besides Raj and DK are great directors” While that may sound partial to urbane slickness in films Sanon is hardly averse to mass entertainers Heropanti was aimed at a single screen demographic quite the opposite of urbane multiplex moviegoers “There are different kinds of films I want to watch I enjoy both kinds of cinemas There has to be a balance There are times when I like to watch Rowdy Rathore and Heropanti which are more commercial—even Singh is Bling is a family entertainer but Farzi is a thriller and is different My debut film in Telugu was a psychological thriller too very different from Telugu masala films so I suppose one has to mix it up” It is hardly surprising then that the young actress is impressed with Kangana Ranaut’s journey “Everyone is doing amazing work although my recent favourite would have to be Queen Kangana performs exceedingly well in all her films whether it is Gangster or Tanu Weds Manu and now Queen” However Sanon shies away from following any role model and prefers being herself—the quintessential Dilli girl “People do want to see a pretty face but you also need to have a personality If you are robotic and you can’t really perform then you won’t last beyond two to three films as times have changed now Today girls have substantial roles and you can’t pull that off unless you can perform well of course I still need to learn and prove myself You need at least five films to prove that you are exceptionally talented” opines the actress That she’s got a smart head on her shoulder; an invaluable asset in showbiz is evident from an anecdote from her modelling days During the shoot of a television commercial with superstar Aamir Khan there was a scene that wasn’t coming to her easily “I said that it seemed very fake So Aamir said something which holds so true of acting— ‘It will look real only if you do it as though it is the most natural thing to do’ Whenever I am unable to do a scene I try to follow his advice” says Sanon [email protected] For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App

the overwhelming title favourites (STATS || POINTS TABLE || FIXTURES) “It was very good to get that win (over Bangladesh) It is very difficult to be consistent in this formant and you need to come to terms with that Sometimes you need character to get you over the line and that is why our spinners and Hardik (Pandya) were brilliant for us “This format requires you to be at the top of your focus while batting and fielding So we need to stay in the moment and not get carried away” said Kohli ahead of the virtual quarterfinal between India and Australia in the ICC World T20 in Mohali on Sunday Kohli said Aussies will be tough as usual but they would take positives out of their 3-0 win Down Under in January WATCH:India vs Australia ICC World Twenty20 Preview “You always want to win convincingly but it is not possible all times Sometimes you have to adapt well to tough situations like we did in the last two games If you look at how we have played this season we have been consistent We can focus on what we did in Australia and take positives out of it but can’t take anything for granted it is a virtual quarterfinal Why we beat them is important to remember rather than

“When I started a lot about me was wrong I was the tattoo guy the one who wore stylish clothes It is very easy to focus on the negative stuff but I choose not do that The basic thinking is I want to improve as a cricketer every day I make sure I do all the hard work and hope it pays off one day I back myself to go out there and win the game “As a cricketer you don’t have a long career For me it is an opportunity Once you get addicted to it (performing) you want more and more of it You work so hard and you want that satisfaction” he explained India had beaten Pakistan here in the semifinals of the 50-over World Cup in 2011 Sundayis another crucial game “One thing I have learnt is that if play well in semis and finals of the World Cup you become more confident as a player The occasion (in 2011) was too overwhelming for me I had seen the Prime Ministers of both countries present at the ground It is very easy to look at all these and not focus on what you have to do It is very important

also very calm at the moment MS got good suggestions from him and it was an important moment for us “The most staggering part was that he did not throw the ball and was very sure that he could beat the batsman with pace It was brilliant from him under the circumstances” Kohli said the key to success in a world event is adaptability to conditions that differ from match to match “It is very important to assess conditions We do have meetings on what can be done on different surface It also depends on individuals how they want to do about playing on a particular pitch You need to plan according to your strength And on game day too much pre planning doesn’t help “Adaptability is key in this competition It is not like IPL where you have seven home and away games It is a big challenge” he said Captain Steven Smith is a crucial cog in Australian line-up and Kohli said it would be important to stop him “He is a very important player for Australia The way their batting unit
