Recalling the instance, Sonnalli says, “It was recently when I tested for a well-known casting director for a fantastic role. I was very excited for this audition and prepared myself really well coz I really wanted to bag it! And I did! But on meeting the director there I was asked to make some changes on my body, unnaturally! It was a no brainer for me to say no, even though my heart broke… But I would Never put my body under the knife!”
“I am an emotional person, so I did cry but purely because I lost a great work opportunity. But on the other hand I gave myself a silent pat on my back for not succumbing to the pressures around me and sticking to ,” adds Sonnalli.
Ask her about losing the opportunity, she says, “Yes I felt that it was an opportunity lost..rather let me put it this way..it was an opportunity ‘sacrificed’ in order to stand by what I firmly believe. But having said that, I didn’t waste much time dwelling over it..as I rather channelise my energies into better opportunities coming my way!”
