"I am ready for performance-oriented films. I myself feel the time has come for me to make the switch. Earlier, I was establishing myself. In 2015, I am doing a film with AR Murugadoss, which is a woman-centric film. It has a great story and I am looking forward to it," Sonakshi said.

The actress, however, feels that doing commercial films was not a conscious decision and it was more because she enjoys such films as a viewer. "I did mass entertainers because I love watching these
films myself. There was no strategy involved in doing commercial movies.

People forget that I am still new, it has just been 4 years, though I have done 12 films. There is a lot of time for me to explore myself and do different stuff. In big-budget films too, my performances were appreciated."

The actress is famous for playing the small town girl in most of her films but she does not feel stereotyped. "I have played small town girl in many of my films but I never felt typecast because I think my Indianness is my strength. You put me in any state and I will become a part of it. I believe it is my biggest strength," she said.
