I took break from movies to finish my studies: Sonal Chauhan
New Delhi: `Jannat` star Sonal Chauhan, who appeared alongside Amitabh Bachchan in `Buddah Hoga Tera Baap` after a long gap, says she took a break from Bollywood to complete her education.
The 24-year-old actress is a student of philosophy and decided to complete her degree before signing up new projects.
"I was getting scripts but didn`t take them up purposely as I was finishing my studies and didn`t want to hamper it."
Sonal, who worked opposite Bachchan in her second film, considers herself lucky to have had that opportunity.
"I feel lucky and blessed to have got the chance of working with Big B. It`s just my second movie and I have worked with him, but I just couldn`t get enough of him and hope to work with him again in future," Sonal told reporters.
The actress, who comes from a modelling background, says she would not mind wearing a bikini in a movie if the script demands it. She also does not understand the hullabaloo around the two-piece in Bollywood.
"I don`t see any problem in wearing a bikini if the script demands. I am comfortable with my body and being an actor I would want to do justice to the role. I would certainly not wear a bikini to lure the audience to the theatre though," Sonal said.
"I don`t understand what is the big deal about wearing a bikini onscreen," she added.
Sonal does not mind that she has not been included in the sequel to `Jannat`.
"I have no problems if I am not part of Jannat 2. I think the first movie had it`s proper ending and it would have been inappropriate if I would have been in the second. Jannat is very close to my heart and I hope the part two does well," she said.
Mahesh Bhatt `s `Jannat 2` will star Kunal Khemu in the lead opposite Amrita Puri. The original movie, about the cricket betting, starred Emraan Hashmi and Sonal.
