Actor Sonakshi Sinha (left) describes herself as a grounded person and says that she enjoys appreciation, but at the same time is aware of the fact that fame is a relative term.
"I'm happy that I'm being appreciated as an actress and who doesn't like box office success? I just wish that I do good films that audiences love," she said.
"I'm very grounded as a person. I know that fame is a very relative term. When films work well, fame comes naturally. I just hope that I do good work and people remember me for them," added the actress who gave two back-to-back blockbusters - Dabangg and Rowdy Rathore.
"I never pick a film knowing it will be a blockbuster. I pick a film that is interesting and at the end of it all, audiences have to like it. We are entertainers, who hope to entertain always with every film," Sonakshi said.
Sonakshi forayed into Bollywood with 2010 film Dabangg, which broke all box-office records. Her second film Rowdy Rathore entered the R100 crore club, though her recent release Joker, which had Akshay Kumar in the male lead, bombed badly at the box office. This despite Sonakshi single-handedly took on the responsibility on her shoulders to promote the film as Akshay reportedly distanced himself from the film after having a tiff with director Shirish Kunder.
Her next Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai 2 is also with Akshay. "Akshay is a superb co-star to work with. He is a thorough professional and I have learnt a lot from him. He is one of the most punctual stars in Bollywood and it is a great quality.
He is also a super actor who is so dedicated to his craft," she added, and chose to stay tight lipped on why he did not promote their last release with her.
She is now expected to start shooting for Dabangg 2 with Salman Khan.
