Actor Surveen Chawla says that the glamour world is the toughest place to be in.

Actor Surveen Chawla, who is known for her bold image, says she is tired of being offered the same roles. The
32-year-old says that after her last erotica Hate Story 2 (2014), she went through a phase where she didn’t take on any project because she wasn’t offered anything different.

“I had a tough time after Hate Story 2. I had been rejecting other eroticas and there was nothing else that I was offered. I realised that I needed to prove my mettle in other genres too. These things often make you doubt your abilities,” she says.

The actor says that uncertainty about the future is one of the biggest challenges faced by an actor. “I feel this industry is full of insecurity. You never seem to be content. There is so much uncertainty relating to work and you are constantly chasing films. It’s like you are trying for a film and someone else bags the role. Insecurity takes the best of you specially when you are down. And most actors go through these ups and downs in their lives,” she says.

“The glamour industry is the toughest place to be. If you are sitting at home, without work, for a few days, you begin to feel that you might not be good enough. Just talent doesn’t take you very far, you need to be lucky as well. Also, you need to be at the right place at the right time,” adds Surveen, who will be seen in the second season of Anil Kapoor’s 24.
