Sonam Bajwa rose to fame with her performances in the Punjabi film industry. The actress is currently on a promotional spree for her upcoming movie Carry On Jatta 3. Recently, the actress revealed why she hasn’t debuted in Bollywood yet and talked about being called a ‘national crush’
In an interview with Indian Express, Sonam Bajwa talked about ‘bold content’ being the hindrance in her Bollywood debut and said, “Absolutely, that has been a big hindrance for me all this while.” She further added, “My parents have never questioned my choices, rather they have asked why I said no to films because of such scenes. They do understand the profession but I have been holding myself back. I think I have been brought up that way and also have a responsibility towards my fans. But if it’s required to the script and shot well, something that I can watch with my brother, I would be game for it. I don’t want to do anything for the sake of eyeballs or to titillate. Today, sometimes you feel they force these things, which I am totally against.”
The actress who enjoys a huge fan following, talked about getting tags such as ‘national crush’, and ‘most desirable’ and said, “It’s not important but it does get overwhelming. I am so grateful for the love I have received. It’s been beyond my imagination. I really don’t have anything to say, because sometimes you even start questioning this love. Do I really deserve it? Will I manage to live up to their expectations? I really feel we are all actors, and it’s the fans who make us stars, and give us such tags. It does feel good and helps me sleep with a big smile on my face.”
Helmed by Sameep Kang, Carry On Jatta 3 is a Punjabi comedy film starring Gippy Grewal, Sonam Bajwa, Binnu Dhillon, Jaswinder Bhalla, and Gurpreet Ghuggi among others. The movie is a sequel to Carry On Jatta 2 and is scheduled for a theatrical release on June 29.
