I didn't choose my career, it chose me: Sindhu Loknath
Though this film, which started in 2016, got a delayed release, the story is very fresh, says the heroine of Heegondhu Dina
It was lack of good scripts and personal commitments that kept Sindhu Loknath away from cinema for years, according to the actor. But the Lifeu Ishtene actor is thrilled to be back with Heegondhu Dina, directed by Vikram Yoganand, which is slated for release this week. There is a sense of excitement about her as she talks about her upcoming film. “Though this film started in 2016, its release got delayed. But still, the storyline is very fresh,” says Sindhu.
Going by the one-liner of the film, it’s the story of a girl who chases the dream of becoming an actor, and is set to audition for a role. But, this was not the case with Sindhu. “I didn’t choose my career, it chose me. And when it happened, I took it as a destiny,” she says.
Sindhu stresses that Heeongdhu Dina is not heroine-centric, but story driven. As a protagonist, she is seen in each frame and meets various people through the film. “Will they push me to reach my destination or will they hold me back is what determines the character’s journey in the film. It is not just an actor’s life. This happens in every girl’s life who needs to decide between her career and marriage,” she says.
Sindhu is married, but has never spoken about it. This is because she didn’t want to mix her personal and professional life. “I’ve always been secure about my personal life. I don’t carry the baggage of work, home, or vice versa. They are two different worlds,” she says.
Has marriage changed the kind of cinema she has been signing off late? She disagrees. “I have been doing the kind of cinema which I am comfortable with, and this remains the same after marriage,” she says.
The actor was a part of the webseries Loose Connection. She also wrote and produced a short story. On the film front, she has Kaanadante Mayavadhanu, a film made under Yogaraj Bhat banner, and that’s about it for now, she says.
