MUMBAI: Sonya Saamoor, who earned recognition with her role as Ruby Rathod in Nazar, is currently seen in Sirf Tum. Majorly seen as an antagonist in shows, this is Sonya’s first positive role.
She spoke about how a major heartbreak in New Zealand led her to India, how she left her IT job and started from scratch as a model, how acting happened to her, married life and more.
She said, “I am an IT graduate. I was working in the IT sector in New Zealand. My plan was to work in the corporate and get married. Either I will settle in LA or Auckland. I never had any acting dreams as such. I had a major breakup and things changed for me. I came to India and the rest is history. I got modelling offers and I started from the bottom. Modeling took me to acting. I take life as it comes. I didn’t say no to the opportunities. That was my journey. I wasn’t fussy. I had to pay bills and lead a normal life. From earning in dollars to earning in rupees… I took whatever came my way. It was destiny.
I was going through a break-up. Not going much into details, it was a major one. I wanted to break free from that. I moved to India to my mum’s house. There were no modelling plans. I didn’t think of becoming a heroine as soon as I stepped in India. I came here to heal myself and recover from the heartbreak. My heartbreak led to this. God always has bigger plans for you.”
