Sensitive people should not enter Bollywood: Soha Ali Khan
Th actor says that people who are highly sensitive to criticism would do well to keep away from the entertainment industry
Actor Soha Ali Khan, also the author of the book Perils of being moderately famous, feels that to be a part of the Bollywood industry, one needs a thick skin.
Asked about the dos and don'ts for aspiring models, Soha says, "I can't say much about modelling but I can say about acting. People who are very sensitive should not become a part of this industry. You get a lot of criticism and you need to have a thick skin."
She adds, "Everyone will have opinions about you on social media. And when you read them, it will break you easily if you are a sensitive person."
Soha, along with husband Kunal Kemmu, have also announced their maiden production, a biopic on Ram Jethmalani. Talking about its casting, Soha says, "Ram Jethmalani has lived over nine decades and the idea is to find out what decade to focus the story on. We are currently working on the story. When we find out the decade, we will be able to cast. I have a few names in mind but it all depends on the director."
Soha will next be seen in Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3 directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia co-starring Sanjay Dutt, Jimmy Shergill, Mahi Gill, and Chitrangada Singh. The film is set to be released in July.
