Women are better drivers than men

Though her acting in Ragini MMS (2011) was applauded, the fear of getting stereotyped made actor Kainaz Motivala sign Challo Driver where she plays a chauffeur.

“I was getting a lot of similar roles which would totally typecast me as a bold actor and I didn’t want that. Therefore, I waited for the right script,” says Kainaz, 25, who drove like a pro on the busy streets of Delhi and Gurgaon for the film.

The actor says she enjoys driving and doesn’t have a driver. She even advises women drivers to lock their car doors to avoid crimes committed at traffic lights, nowadays.

Trashing that women aren’t good drivers, she says, “I think women are much more level headed and don’t get into fights on the roads. They’re also less rash and more safety conscious. Women are better drivers than men.” Kainaz thinks Delhi girls are different from Mumbai girls.

She says, “Delhi is considered unsafe for girls and that’s made them stronger, more vocal than girls in Mumbai, who are more laid back. Also, I noticed while I was shooting here, that Delhi girls are a lot more conscious of how they’re turned out and lay a lot of importance on their appearance unlike Mumbai.”

Being bold

I say

ullu ka pattha

in the film, it is hardly an abuse. I want to get rid of this bold tag

Casting couch

It’s a dirty reality of this industry, but you have to decide what path you want to take


It definitely makes your life simpler if you have a Godfather, but I believe in hard work
