She says, “I got an offer from the makers of the new show on Buddha. I was approached for the lead role, but I politely declined. I only want to concentrate on movies right now." Sonarika feels that every TV actor eventually wants a career in the film industry."You are creatively satisfied while working on a film. You shoot for 15-20 hours on TV and that takes a toll on your health, mental state and social life. There’s always a rush to complete the shoot. I have got some experience on TV and now I think I should do something new.”
A popular face on her show, Sonarika says she has been approached for films earlier. “A month after I joined Mahadev (as Parvati), I got an offer from a good banner. But I had just started shooting and wanted to be loyal to the production house and do one thing at a time. Later, I got many offers and I am getting in touch with them now. So, no TV for now.”
Ask if she is still hurt about being replaced on the show, and she says, “Lots has been said. Let bygones be bygones. I don’t want to talk about it anymore."
