Actress Sonal Chauhan, who hogged the limelight with her first film Jannat opposite Emraan Hashmi, had made her presence felt in Tollywood with a series of hit films like Pandaga Chesko, Legend and Dictator. Now after a brief hiatus from films, she’s entering into the streaming space with Zee5’s upcoming series Skyfire, in which she plays a historian.
In an interview to a portal, she had added that she’s been a Netflix fan for long and was initially skeptical about how the OTT platform would fare in the Indian market. The growing popularity for the streaming space and an author-backed role in Skyfire were primary reasons that convinced her to act in a web series. She’s also in the middle of signing the dotted line for another digital show.
The Jannat actress feels she hasn’t been lucky with film offers in general and has refused to opt for stories that only demand skin show over acting chops. Even with web series, she’s particular about taking nuanced characters and not merely go for ‘bold content’. That’s some clarity indeed!
