Actress Disha Patani, who will be seen sharing screen space with legendary actor Jackie Chan in Kung Fu Yoga, says being an actress was never her plan as she was a very shy girl.
Disha made her debut in 2016 with Sushant Singh Rajput starrer M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story.
Asked if being an actress was always in her mind, Disha told IANS over the phone from Mumbai, “No (it was not the plan). I was so shy I didn’t have friends till 16 or something. I could never imagine myself acting in front of the camera or doing anything in front of the camera. I was a very shy girl.”

“But I think it was destiny and this (acting) was meant to be…I got the opportunity and i grabbed it and slowly I started finding a lot of interest in acting,” she added.
Disha will be seen playing an archaeologist in Kung Fu Yoga, which will hit the screens on January 28.
