Q. 1 What is Shraddha Kapoor’s style statement?
My style statement is to be myself! Because if you try to imitate someone else, you will end up feeling uncomfortable.
Q. 2 Which natural beauty product would you vouch for?
I completely agree that a sound sleep is the best beauty product. Sound sleep, one of the most important but underrated thing, helps to make you more beautiful. I can never understand how people work so hard that they miss out on their sleep. Drinking ample amount of water makes you beautiful inside out. Otherwise, when using cosmetics, one should make it a point to use the right and trusted brands.
Q. 3 Which food forms an essential part of your diet?
I think Broccoli is one of the must have foods, as it contains multi nutrients and is high in vitamin C. Sweet potatoes are rich in complex carbohydrates and fish too is healthy. There is nothing that I have on a daily basis as it becomes monotonous.
Q. 4 Do you use beauty products that you endorse?
Yes. I use the products I endorse. For instance, I always carry the new Lakme Lip Love that I launched, and if you come home, there is one on my bedside table too.
Q. 5 Which actors in the film industry have the best lips?
Q. 6 Do you enjoy wearing make-up?
Frankly, I really enjoy the days when I don’t have to wear any make-up. It’s nice to have nothing on your face. But being an actor, you must look good when you are in the limelight. My make-up varies with the event that I am attending. So, it’s both ways; I enjoy applying make-up and at other times, I also like it without make-up.
Q. 7 What’s the best way to de-stress?
By working. My work helps me to de-stress. I get stressed if I am not on a film set. On my day offs, it’s like kya kare, kya kare. Also spending time with my family helps me to unwind.
Q. 8 How different is wearing make-up for a film and applying it off-screen?
Both are very different. For films, I have to keep things like lighting and weather in mind. In natural light, we use different make-up, and when it is very hot, we use make-up which does not run down with the heat.
In Haider, my character Arshia is a Kashmiri girl and Vishal Bhardwaj (director) wanted a no make-up look. But to get the no make-up look you have to wear make-up! That is harder, because you have to have the right amount of control and give a very natural feel.That’s the challenge of film make-up.
Q. 9 What are the dos and don’ts that you have set for yourself when it comes to endorsements?
I like what Ranveer Singh does when it comes to endorsements. I love his craziness and personality. He is just himself and naturally entertaining. That’s why he stands out. I would like to do what suits my personality. Having said that, I would also like to experiment.
Q. 10 Can you name one exercise that has really worked for you?
Dance is good fun and it really helps me to stay fit. So it serves a dual purpose …. it makes you happy and keeps you fit at the same time. And if you love dancing, well, nothing like it.
