“It is very fresh. It is a space that I have not been a part of before. It is a real character. Usually my characters in my films are very larger-than-life, unrealistic to an extent, not that I have not enjoyed those. But it was refreshing to play someone so real and relatable.” (Source: Instagram)

“Somebody once said, ‘success has ruined more people than failure’. So it’s very important to learn from mistakes and not dwell on them. When I had my huge successes, I never got on to a rooftop and shouted that my films are a hit; and in the case of failures, I don’t sit in a corner and cry about them. You move on and do your next film,” said Sonakshi. (Source: Instagram)
