Before her Hindi film debut in MS Dhoni: The Untold Story (2016), actress Disha Patani had been a part of many action films where her male co-stars did most of the heavy-lifting. She, however, isn’t concerned regarding screen time,she says, “The story and the character always drive me, irrespective of the length of my role. I’m happy as long as it contributes to the film.”
Moreover ,the 28-year-old wants to appear performing stunts in her upcoming projects. Soon in Yodha,we’ll be seeing her engaging in high-octane action shots.“Action and stunts have always been viewed as a man’s domain but slowly things are changing and I’m hopeful that women will be able to headline action films soon. I would love to work on a film like Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001). That has been a dream”she explains.
One of the biggest career aspirations is to be a part of a superhero movies . Talking about it, Patani says, “I’ve always been a fan of this genre and Marvel movies. It would be great to star in a superhero film someday. The entourage of such films is extravagant and shooting in that setting would be something I would really want to at some point in my career.”
On the personal front, she has often been receiving relentless trolling for her bold fashion choices on social media, the recent one being the bikini pictures she posted while she was on Maldivian beach vacation. But she remains unbothered. “I’ve learned to block out the comments from people who choose to spread hatred and not love on social media platforms. Instagram is a platform for self-expression and I post what I enjoy. It’s as simple as that. I don’t pay attention to negative comments,” the actor, who will next be seen in Ek Villain Returns and Yodha, tells us.
