Actor Sonu Sood says his journey in Bollywood has been long and far from easy.
Sonu Sood, who will be seen opposite Jackie Chan, in his upcoming film started out as a model before venturing into films in 1999 (made his debut in Tamil film “Kallazhagar”).
From there, Sonu says, it has been a long and difficult journey in Bollywood, where the competition is fierce.
“It was a tough journey. It is very tough for an outsider to make a mark in Bollywood. Everyday you have to come up with something new and better than other. It is tough. You have to be on your toes, and keep on entertaining people so that you can survive. It is a tough field. But I always had faith in the wishes of my parents. It created a path for me and made my journey smooth.”
The actor did face failure initially with films like “Shaheed-E-Azam”, “Aashiq Banaya Aapne” and “Sheesha”, but Sonu did taste some success with small, but important roles, in films like “Jodhaa Akbar”, “Singh Is Kinng” and “Dabangg”.
And now, the actor is ready to take on bigger things.
The Nagpur born actor, known for his fitness, has featured alongside Shah Rukh Khan in “Happy New Year”. He’s also working with Jackie Chan in “Kung Fu Yoga” (and is also excited about Chinese film “Xuanzang”).
Sonu Sood is also a film producer now.
So it seems, Sonu Sood has finally made his mark in Bollywood.
