Dahaad on Amazon Prime Video stars Sonakshi Sinha as a Dabangg cop who is in charge of an important and complicated case. Her outstanding performance will captivate the audience. With the online series now available on Amazon Prime, the actress is making her OTT debut.

This eight-episode crime drama, a Tiger Baby and Excel Entertainment production, will keep you riveted until the very end, one suspenseful episode at a time. 

The 'Dabangg' actor recently opened up in an exclusive interview with OTTplay, sharing information about how she has now become choosy in selecting the projects, if it was difficult for her to get out of the character and much more. 

When asked if it was difficult of her to get out of the character, Sonakshi said, "I don't take my character home. I leave them on the sets. For me, it's actually very easy to switch on and switch off. I don't switch on unless the camera doesn't start rolling. In fact, I wanted to keep her with me because she is such a cool character."

The actor also revealed that making the OTT debut was not a conscious decision but when she read the script, she knew she wanted to do this. "They narrated the script to me and I immediately said yes because I really wanted to play this character. This was something that I really wanted to do. It didn't matter to me what platform it was releasing on."

On being choosy about her projects, Sinha said, "I want to do things now that really excites me and shake me up. I want to do important roles, I want to do strong roles so I pick and choose."
