Sanjana wants to build box office viability


Mumbai: Actress Sanjana Sanghi, most recognised for roles in movies Dhak Dhak and Dil Bechara, says she strives for both critical and commercial success.

“At every stage of your career commercial success is welcome. The stakes for top actors may be very high because there are so many expectations pinned on them. In your nascent stage, it is a known thing that nothing works like success does. However, today because of how the box office pattern has become where nobody knows what pulls audiences to theatres, the younger lot like us have not had a chance to build commercial box office viability,” the Fukrey Returns actress said.

She further adds, “We have come into a hybrid industry. The scenario was different from when Ranveer (Singh) or Anushka (Sharma) debuted 10 to 15 years ago when box office was the only teller. Now, the landscape has changed. We are all evolving with time. The new box office meter is the audience’s love for your character. For me, ‘Dil Bechara’ was one that showed me how far and wide a film on OTT can travel, because wherever I go people know Kizie Basu (her character from the film).”

“Film is something that I had to be part of because it is such a big deal where four women can be on the poster of the film. It is not a safer choice because it doesn’t have any of the classic tropes of commercial Hindi cinema where there’s no big hero or song and dance. It is a unique choice to make and it is a choice I made for myself,” she ends.
On the work front, Sanjana wil be seen next in Kadak Singh.
