Sonam Bajwa to focus more on Telugu films (Video)
A few weeks ago Mahapunjab reported that a number of Punjabi heroines are working in South India as they find Southern movie industry to be more professional and lucrative. Now, #Sonam Bajwa, one of the top Punjabi actresses, also made it clear that she would prefer #Telugu films over Punjabi as she gets better and more challenging roles in the South.
Sonam makes her Telugu debut with this week’s release #Aatadukundam Raa, which stars Sushanth in the lead.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better debut. I thoroughly enjoyed working on this project,” said Sonam, who is keen on shifting her focus on Telugu filmdom.
“Even though I’ve been offered a few projects since Aatadukundam Raa, I haven’t been in a position to sign any because I’m occupied with some commitments in Punjabi industry till October. As soon as I’m relieved off these assignments, I really want to focus more on Telugu films,” she said.
In this project, she plays a bubbly, simple girl who will be seen in a mix of Indian and western outfits.
“I come from this family that’s modern but at the same time values traditions. As a film, it’s got everything for everybody in the audience. There’s comedy, romance, action and even some element of science-fiction,” she said.
Although Sonam had difficultly picking up an alien language, she feels Telugu isn’t as tough as Tamil.
“I’ve done a Tamil film called Kappal. I found learning Tamil tougher than Telugu. All that it took me to get my lines right in Telugu was a couple of readings to perfect my dialect.
