Soha Ali Khan still cannot figure out why she opted to make her debut with 2004 film ‘Dil Maange More’, which had three actresses in the lead.
The 35-year-old actress, who was new to Bollywood at that time, said it was a terrible decision.
“I don’t know why I chose to make my debut with ‘Dil Maange More’. The film had three leading ladies – me, Tulip Joshi and Ayesha Takia – opposite Shahid Kapoor. I was fresh to Bollywood at that time because I had just come back from England and had no clue about hero-heroine dynamics in India,” Soha said here while discussing the portrayal of women in cinema and TV at an event.
Soha said she took the film because she found her character progressive because she dumps her boyfriend over her career.
“When I was asked a character out of three, I chose Neha because she is ambitious. At an young age of 21 she chooses her career over boyfriend. It was again a wrong decision taken by me because in Hindi films, actresses keep their partner over any other thing,” she said.
But the ‘War Chod Na Yaar’ actress is happy that cinema has changed over the period and she gets to play strong characters.
