Bollywood a difficult place for models: Lisa Haydon

Lisa Haydon reveals said that modelling was not her first love and she initially wanted to be a yoga teacher.

Model-turned-actress Lisa Haydon,who is two-films-old in Bollywood,says she faced difficulties in the film industry for coming from a modelling background.

The 27-year-old actress made her debut with Aisha in

2010 and also starred in Rascals opposite Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn.

“I think establishing yourself as an actor is very difficult thing to do for a model because people have prejudices against models acting. I don’t really take them personally but I think it is difficult for any one to make a mark in this business,” Lisa told PTI. She will be next seen in Akashdeep Sabir directed film Santa Banta,which also stars Boman Irani,Vir Das and Neha Dhupia.

When asked about her upcoming film,Lisa did not divulge any details. The actress also said that modelling was not her first

love and she initially wanted to be a yoga teacher. “I wanted to be a yoga teacher but I was 19 and I thought I was too young and too wild to dedicate myself to such a spiritual practice at such a young age. Modelling came along and it just sort of happened,” said Lisa,who was in the capital to launch a new Schwarzkopf hair colour product.

The former model,who has walked the ramp in all premiere

fashion weeks in the country said,”I am very happy that I


chose modelling. I feel eventually in life,I may go back to do something like teaching yoga but I would never be prepared

for that fully if I had denied the glamourous side of myself.”
