She said, “I want to be that actress whom a filmmaker can think of putting in any kind of film. I have been doing the same from the last nine years. That’s keeps me engaged with my work and makes me love it more.”

Khandaani Shafakhana is helmed by debutante director Shilpi Dasgupta.  In the flick, Sonakshi Sinha plays a girl that inherits her maternal uncle’s clinic.

Sinha asks male actors to support women for change

However, Sinha does have a grudge against the labelling of such projects. She says, “I just want this whole thing of calling a film led by a female artiste ‘woman centric’ to go away because when an Akshay (Kumar) or a Salman (Khan) does a film, no one calls it a male-centric film. A film is a film. Period. We should stop categorising them. We should treat them as equals.”

Sonakshi also talked about the disparity and said that male stars reject films which have bigger female parts.  She said, “It’s true. This is a mindset that should change because I think it would be really nice to have men supporting women for a change. I would also like to see that in Hindi films.” She even held men answerable for this pattern.

Her movie Khandaani Shafakhana will release into the theatres on 2nd August.
