Sonakshi Sinha kisses her mom Poonam Sinha fondly on the sets of Indian Idol Junior.

She might have a large fan following, but actor Sonakshi Sinha says that she will never let this success go to her head. The 28-year-old, who says that this grounded attitude stems from the way she’s been brought up by her parents — actor Shatrughan Sinha and mother Poonam Sinha, adds that she takes success as well as failure in her stride.

“It comes from the way I have been brought up... and it’s come from seeing so many people within the industry as well. I’ve always wanted to be like my father, he is the most level-headed person I know. I have seen people who have been ruined by success more than failure, so it’s very important to treat both in the same way,” says Sona, whose last two films — Action Jackson (2014) and Tevar — did not do well at the box office.

However, the actor says that she leaves it to destiny when it comes to the fate of her films, and feels no reason to worry about how a film will do before it releases. “It’s just how I’ve always been. I have never understood the concept of stressing over things that are not in your control. The fate of a film depends on the audience. And ultimately, what is meant to happen will happen,” she says.

Known for punctuality, Sonakshi says that while she likes to think that she maintains a nice balance between her work and personal life, she is not very good at it. “I am someone who likes to believe that I am very balanced, but I am a hopeless workaholic,” she says.
