I’m looking for more versatility in work: Sanya Malhotra

She made her Bollywood debut with a commercially successful film like “Dangal”, and has since acted in films that have established an image far away from a quintessential Hindi film heroine. The actress says she wants to remain versatile as a performer rather than being recognised by one genre.

“I am looking for more versatility in my work where I will face the challenge and learn something new. Since I am not a trained actor, that is how I will learn things with every film. Limiting myself in one genre would not be the right thing. I do not fear to experiment,” Sanya told IANS here.

From playing a wrestler in “Dangal” to narrating the story of a village girl in “Pataakha” and the forthcoming “Badhaai Ho” — Sanya’s role in every film has been very different.

The story of “Badhaai Ho” revolves around the pregnancy of an elderly couple who has an adult son. Sanya plays the love interest of the son.

Asked if she will feel awkward if she gets such a news from her own parents, Sanya said: “No, I do not think so. For me, the simple truth that our parents can have a regular sex life after our birth is natural. If husband and wife are together, they can do anything happily… Society creates the awkwardness. Yes, it is not common, but it happens.”

“I won’t be shocked if tomorrow I got to know that my parents are expecting a baby, really,” she added.
