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.”
