Spotted in the City recently, the actress is as confident as ever and faces the media with as much enthusiasm as any newcomer. Talking to Metrolife, Sonia says that she is thrilled with the response of the audience to her character in the multi-starrer Vaanam. “Though it was a small role, people really liked me in it and it was this response that pushed me to sign some more movies,” she adds.

Describing the day she went on the sets after a huge gap, she says there was a mixed feeling of nervousness and excitement. “But the minute the cameras came on, I knew I had made the right choice and the feeling was great,” she adds.

Currently working in two Tamil films, Poi Sollade and Matha Pitha Guru, it is her entry into Malayalam films that is creating a huge buzz. She will be paired with Mukesh in a yet-to-be-titled Malayalam venture, which will be directed by Mohan Kupleri. “I just want to be a part of good cinema. I found the script very interesting and thought why not give it a try. I am keeping my fingers on how the audience will accept me,” says Sonia.

While Poi Sollade is a love triangle, Sonia’s role in Matha Pitha Guru is much talked about. Directed by Ramesh, Sonia reveals that the film is about child abuse. “I am looking forward to this film as I will be seen in three different roles. I play an investigative television journalist, a saint and a woman with negative shades. All three are equally interesting and it’s a challenge to get into the depth of the characters,” says Sonia.

The actress, who even earlier was known for her offbeat roles, says that her choice of films is deliberate. “I have always believed in doing different kinds of movies and signing on projects which would provide me enough opportunity to prove myself. And I am glad that there are films that allow me to do that,” she signs off.
