Want to focus more on Telugu films: Sonam Bajwa

Chennai, Aug 16 (IANS) Actress Sonam Bajwa, who currently juggles between the Telugu and Punjabi industry, says she intends to focus on doing more Telugu films going forward and explore a variety of characters in the process.

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 modem 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.

Talking about her co-star Sushanth, she revealed: “He’s very friendly and bonds very well with everyone on the sets. He’s very humble too. The whole unit was very friendly and ensured that I never felt like a newcomer.”

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.

Sonam, who has played both glamorous as well as deglamorous roles in her Punjabi films, wants to follow a similar approach in Telugu industry too.

“I want to do versatile roles and take up modern characters. As much as I want to play glamorous roles, I think there’s beauty in playing simple characters too,” she said.
