Neha Dhupia has no regrets
Bollywood actress Neha Dhupia, whose career has been a mixed bag so far, admits she has made mistakes in her career but says she doesn't regret any of them.
The former Miss India has been a part of popular films like 'Kyaa Kool Hai Hum', 'Shootout at Lokhandwala' and 'Singh Is Kinng' as well as duds like 'Sheesha' and 'Paying Guest'.
"I have made mistakes, but they are not regrets, and I don't want to talk about my mistakes," Neha said in an interview.
"There is no such thing as wrong films. A mistake could be not waking up in the morning and going to the gym, or if you are rude to someone or someone misunderstands you. I am not god, so I am not perfect. But there are no regrets," she added.
The 32-year-old admits she has turned down many offers that she thought were not suited for her.
"I got many opportunities, but I didn't want to be a part of them. Sometimes you can't relate to something or you feel you are too young or old to do something.
"I have refused a lot of work. It is not like I reject work, but I don't agree with some things at times. I just feel that roles should add value to me also. If it's a great role and even if there is one scene, I will do it," she said.
Neha entered the film world after a brush with modelling. She says models are not very good actors, and there are better actors than her in the industry. However, she doesn't believe in competing with anyone.
"There are better actors than us (models) in the industry. Everyone has a (different)magic and I feel that you can only last those many years and get those many more films. Maybe my magic doesn't come across that much, but everyone has something. There is something special about me, maybe not as much as someone else," she said.
The actress said she loves being a part of the film industry, and that having a star parent would have made it easier for her.
"It is easier when you have a parent in the industry... you have someone who is selflessly guiding you. If I had a godfather, things would have been different, but even if it is not there, it is okay. I love being in the industry," she said.
Neha also added that she doesn't agree with stereotypical assumptions about the industry being tough on girls.
"People say the industry is a certain way and it is tough for girls, but I have never encountered anything like that...My morals are very high," she said.
