Sonakshi Sinha turns a year older on Thursday, but the Bollywood actor doesn’t believe in hosting an elaborate bash to celebrate the occasion. Instead, she likes going with the flow. “I never make big plans for my birthday. I think last-minute plans are always more fun. I’m all for spontaneity,” says Sonakshi.

Recently, it was reported that Sonakshi, who has two films lined up (one opposite John Abraham and the other, in which she plays a boxer), has signed three new movies. According to the reports, Sonakshi is set to star in a murder mystery opposite Sidharth Malhotra, in filmmaker Vipul Shah’s Namastey England opposite Akshay Kumar, and in Noor - a movie based on the novel, Karachi You’re Killing Me!, in which she will play the role of a journalist. However, the actor refrains from divulging any details, and when asked about the projects, simply says, “That (announcing the films) is the call of the producers. They will talk when the time is right.”

However, she is looking forward to her two upcoming films, calling them “exciting projects”. “I have wrapped up my next, and will soon finish shooting for my film with John. The release dates of both the movies have been announced, so, I’m excited. I finally have some time off now. So, I am doing what I love to do — travel. I have also started painting,” says Sonakshi, who recently auctioned a painting made by her. “I’m really happy that I was able to contribute to a cause. There is a lot more that I want to do with my art, and I’m sure I will in the near future,” she says.

On the other hand, Sonakshi often remains unperturbed by what’s happening around her or what is being said about her on social media. Ask her if her detached attitude might be taken as being uninterested, and she says, “My calm demeanor has got me so far in life. Who is mistaking it for what is the least of my concerns. That’s just who I am,” says the actor.

Even in terms of her professional choices, Sonakshi is trying to add more versatility to her portfolio. “When I read a script, I start thinking if I would like to watch a film like that or not, and will it be a great family entertainer. I’m also trying different genres now,” says the actor.
