Sanya Malhotra, who painted an ethos in her debut “Dangal” is now prepped up to return back to screen with “Pataakha”. It is significant that Malhotra is not in a hurry to chase stardom.
While speaking to a leading daily, she expressed, “I have learned the art of patience and read scripts to do the next best. After Dangal, I knew I didn’t want to do any film where I’m just there. I’m happy for not being very famous and not creating waves on social media platforms. Going slow in my career makes me happy.”
It goes without saying that she owes a lot to her mentor Aamir Khan and mentions, “Aamir used to tell me and Fatima ‘don’t do more than two films a year’. When I signed three and he got to know, he said ‘you’re doing so many movies!”
“I started out with Dangal where the emphasis was more on the character. I have no pressure to deliver a hit film as I never approach a script in that way. I have no fear of going wrong too because it’s okay to make mistakes. There were days when I had no work, no money, still I enjoyed the ride”, she adds on.
The actress feels blessed to see her life changing in a “lovely way” after Dangal. This year Sanya will also be seen in Ritesh Batra’s Photograph opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Badhaai Ho starring Ayushmann Khurrana.
Based on Charan Singh Pathik’s story Do Behnein, Pataakha releases on 28th September.
