"I didn’t know much at 15. But I knew I could never look like a Bollywood actress. Two years and some surprising life decisions later, Sanjay Leela Bhansali cast me in Saawariya. Despite being on the cusp of actually being a movie star, I didn’t believe I looked the part.. more. I constantly worried that, if asked to dance in a backless choli, rolls of back fat would give me away as an imposter to the industry. Nobody lines up to buy tickets to see cellulite."
"I lost out on a lot of films because of my father. Salman Khan didn't want to do Prem Ratan Dhan Payo with me. He was like, 'Anil Kapoor has been my close friend. How can I romance his daughter?' It was really difficult and weird."
