Bollywood actor 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 factor 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.
“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 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.
