Acknowledging Past Choices

In a candid interview with Zoom, Sinha bravely acknowledged her past involvement in what she termed as “problematic big films.” Reflecting on her journey, she admitted that there were instances where she felt uncomfortable with the roles she portrayed, particularly those where she was referred to as ‘maal.’

A Shift in Career Trajectory

Sinha highlighted the pivotal moment in her career with the release of AR Murugadoss’ 2016 action thriller “Akira.” Playing the role of a vigilante fighting against acid attacks and female abuse, Sinha marked a significant shift in the types of roles she chose to portray on screen.

A Diverse Portfolio

Following “Akira,” Sinha continued to diversify her portfolio with roles in films such as “Force 2,” “Noor,” “Ittefaq,” and “Mission Mangal.” Despite her past choices, the actress has demonstrated a willingness to explore more meaningful and challenging roles in her recent projects.
