Maharashtrian actress Sonalee Kulkarni, who had a good 2013 with Grand Masti and Zapatlela2, is upbeat about her career.
“Last year, it was a great high that I did two films that did well at the box office. I knew thatGrand Masti was a massy entertainer and not everyone’s cup of tea. But, these kind of films reach a wider audience and I knew I was working with a good team. The extent of the film’s success was a huge surprise, especially since adult comedy is comparatively a newer genre in Bollywood. I’m happy to be getting good offers,” she says.
On Zapatlela 2, she says, “Being part of the Marathi industry’s first 3D film was also extremely satisfying. I’m proud that I was part of this film, which is a sequel to one of the biggest hits, 20 years ago. The icing on the cake is that they’re planning to make another instalment of the film.”
Meanwhile, Sonalee is gearing up for her new releases. “I now have to live up to bigger expectations. I’ve a few big budget films coming up in both Hindi and Marathi, one of which is a period film where I’m essaying one of the most misunderstood and controversial characters inMarathi history,” she reveals.
