While her contemporaries Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone are doing films in the West, actress Sonakshi Sinha is in no rush and says she will think about doing a Hollywood movie if offered a powerful role.

Priyanka made a name for herself on small screen in the US through her television show “Quantico” and now she will be making her debut in Hollywood with “Baywatch”. Deepika too, will be seen opposite Hollywood star Vin Diesel in “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage”. Asked about her Hollywood aspirations, Sonakshi told reporters, “Right now I have no intention as such but if I get a really good role... I feel they (Priyanka, Deepika) have got some really good characters and roles to play in Hollywood.

“So if something like that comes my way I will think about it, but right now I don’t really intend to.”

The 29-year-old actress was speaking at the trailer launch of her upcoming movie “Akira”. AR Murugadoss-directed action-thriller will be Sonakshi’s first release after a gap of almost one and a half years. Her last film was “Tevar” which hit the theaters in January, 2015. The “Lootera” star, however, is unaffected by the gap and chooses to focus on working rather than worrying about the release date.

“I’ve been super busy in the gap, I have been shooting ‘Akira’, ‘Force 2’ as well, I am starting ‘Noor’ tomorrow and I am excited for that. I have been just doing my work.

“Honestly, for me its all about that, I concentrate on work, wear my blinders, do my work, do it well and when it (the film) has to release, it releases,” she said.

“Akira” features filmmaker Anurag Kashyap in a negative role and also stars Konkona Sensharma. Sonakshi, who worked with Murugadoss in “Holiday” which also starred Akshay Kumar, said for “Akira” the “Airlift” actor just gave her one tip which she was not able to follow.

“The biggest tip he (Akshay) gave me was ‘injuries se bach kay rehna’, which I wasn’t able to follow. He is a very sensible person when it comes to understanding proper form about martial arts,” Sonakshi said.

“Watching him do all the action, in all the movies we shot, you get to learn a lot. He is always very involved. He automatically teaches you,” she added.

“Akira” is set to release on September 2.
