From a girl-next-door to action-oriented roles — Sonakshi Sinha, who has explored a variety of roles in Bollywood, says it's a great time to be a girl in the industry as filmmakers are increasingly exploring women-centric movies.

Sonakshi made her Bollywood debut alongside the Salman Khan starrer Dabangg, seven years ago, and has been on a roll ever since. She has featured in action-packed stunts in films such as Akira and Force 2, and next will be seen in Noor.

"It's a great time to be a girl in the industry because there are such wonderful roles being written for us," says the 29-year-old, who has also been a part of films such as Lootera and Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty, has clocked over half a dozen years in the Hindi film industry. And it's been a learning experience, she says.

"Very eventful," she says when asked to describe her journey. "I have learnt a lot...It has been a great learning process," adds the actor, the daughter of veteran actor and politician Shatrughan Sinha and actor Poonam Sinha.

Not many know that Sonakshi started her career as a costume designer. Is she a fashion conscious person?

"Not at all. I have got a very individualistic style, which is grungy, edgy and sporty... Because that's how I have always dressed since I was a child... I have grown up wearing boys' clothes and I feel now that has become a fashionable statement... So, I think little bit of that is still in me," says Sona.
