Mumbai,  Actress Sonakshi Sinha says her mantra for an instant dose of happiness is to watch something that is light and happy.

English Entertainment channel Romedy NOW will introduce a specially curated property ‘Happy Hours’, a line-up of romantic comedies, in collaboration with Sonakshi-starrer “Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi”.

“My mantra for an instant dose of happiness is to watch something that is light and happy like a rom-com or a chick-flick, which is light viewing and makes me forget all stresses,” Sonakshi said in a statement.

“From the films that will air on ‘Happy Hours’, ‘Monte Carlo’ is my favourite because it is about three girls and a case of mistaken identity. ‘Monte Carlo’ is a fun and light watch which makes you smile and gives you butterflies in the stomach and shares a storyline similar to ‘Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi’,” she added.
