My father made me very tough.
I think I am very anti-social.
I am not shy about my personal life.
I don’t really wear sarees and suits.
I prefer wearing comfortable clothes.
Neeraj Pandey is a very smart director.
Priyanka Chopra has made a huge impact on me.
Whenever I am working or training, I feel good.
When it comes to fashion, follow your instinct.
I love the rain and everything about the monsoons!
It has taken me time to get used to the limelight.
Jackie Chan is the best storyteller on this planet.
Fashion is being ‘you.’ It is a form of expression.
I’m constantly working towards my personal improvement.
I am not a very complex person. I believe in simplicity.
I was so shy, I didn’t have friends ’til 16 or something.
I am fine because somebody’s opinion can’t become my reality.
We have freedom of speech, and anybody’s idea can’t be a fact.
I think colouring your hair is the best way to get a new look.
I love Priyanka Chopra mainly because she is a self-made woman.
Sometimes you don’t have to say anything. Silence speaks it all.
Use coconut oil to remove makeup, and do it before going to bed.
I was doing B.Tech in Noida, but I dropped out in my second year.
I understand that you cannot always be on the top or be the best.
I am very selfish when it comes to work, and I only care about work.
Performance is one thing which has to be good because you’re an actor.
I want to do everything and not get stuck with just one type of roles.
Stories matter to me. I look for a good script, story, and a strong part.
I was more of a commercial model. I wasn’t into ramp walks or photo shoots.
I am learning aerobics and gymnastics, so I would love to do an action film.
Frankly, I am boring. My life is all about the film set, gym classes, and home.
People have certain expectations from me, and I want to do different characters.
I have never planned anything. ‘Kung Fu Yoga’ was also never planned or anything.
My house was a place where there was no difference between being a boy or a girl.
If I am writing down something and it is my idea, my imagination, it won’t be fact.
I’m not sure if this is a good thing or not, but I’m not a very competitive person.
Don’t be afraid to wear fancy dress-up pieces with your everyday denim jeans/shorts.
People may say different things about Noida, but I had fun when I was staying there.
I like dancing but not in crowded clubs. I would rather dance alone than go to a club.
It is very difficult for me to accept the fact that I am acting in front of the camera.
I am mostly concerned about the script. If I get something that excites me, I will do it.
I don’t think I am an icon. My team works hard on my look; I just wear what they suggest.
Modelling is completely different from acting. They are two skills that you can’t compare.
From my childhood, I have watched a lot of action films, and I am a big fan of Jackie Chan.
As I grew up, I started practising gymnastics. I love dancing as well. So that keeps me fit.
From being a nobody in the industry to getting so much love, it has been an amazing journey.
I look forward to being part of the ASUS family and its fascinating growth journey in India.
I want to be a part of ‘Avengers’; they can make me the Hulk! I want to do a superhero film.
If you feel comfortable and cool in particular clothes, then that is fashion according to me.
People assume that acting is an easy job. When you actually do it, you know how hard that is.
I got the opportunity, and I grabbed it, and slowly, I started finding a lot of interest in acting.
I myself get nervous when I write something on social media. I make sure I don’t write anything wrong.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a small role: if I know I can pull it off and have a good team, I will do it.
There are days when I want to feel cool, sexy, goofy, and at these times, fashion helps me define my mood.
I consider myself extremely fortunate, and I am more happy for all the attention that I constantly garner.
I am an actress. My first film was a Telugu film, my second film was Bollywood, and third was Indo-Chinese.
I wash my face with a good cleanser and then dab some rose water on my face. I do this before I head to bed.
I was always into sports, and as a sportsperson, you need to be fit to survive and play from start to finish.
In Bollywood, on an average, movies are made in six months or a year, but Puri completed ‘Loafer’ in two months.
Conditioning is very important when it comes to hair. One should oil hair on a regular basis for hair nourishment.
I don’t take others’ views seriously because that isn’t a fact. I do respect everyone’s view, but I am not affected.
I wake up, go for dance class, and do the same things that I used to do. I am very asocial. I don’t go out too often.
I am looking for strong characters rather than being just a pretty girl. Actresses can do so much more than looking good.
I could never imagine myself acting in front of a camera or doing anything in front of the camera. I was a very shy girl.
I am very selfish when it comes to choosing a film. There is no strategy as such; I take up anything that gives me a kick.
Since I’m a highly self-critical person, I try to become better every day. I don’t see the point of competing with anyone.
Anything that is related to my work will affect me. If someone tells me they didn’t like my performance, it will affect me.
I think I am lucky enough to be getting this chance also that people want to know about me. I don’t want to complain over it.
I have chosen this job. If I didn’t like it, I would have chosen something else. I can’t go out and say that ‘I don’t like it.’
It doesn’t matter to me where am I going. Language is not a barrier for me, I can go anywhere with my craft, so why not Hollywood?
I strongly believe that your hair plays a significant and impactful role in helping you change your look or make a style statement.
I believe that cleansing and hydrating is extremely important, especially with the environment’s condition and the pollution around.
I don’t attend film parties; I am anti-social. I don’t drink, also. Because I don’t go out, I don’t know what’s happening gossip-wise.
My daily routine is set: I wake up and go for gymnastics, then dance class, gym, and come back home. That’s my life. I am very boring.
I am a workaholic. I am very restless, and I am always looking for good work. I don’t act for the heck of it; I do it because I love it.
Though I love sarees and feel a woman looks most beautiful in a saree, my personal style statement is casual because I am more tomboyish.
Commercials are 20 seconds long, so you don’t get to experiment with your characters. But in films, you get to try out your acting skills.
It doesn’t matter if I am the lead or a man is the lead actor in a film. What really matters to me is that I give my 100 per cent to my job.
I follow dancers like Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce, as they are in my zone, but when it comes to Indian dancing, I am a huge Madhuri Dixit fan.
I have to think a thousand times before I speak. If I am myself and end up saying one wrong thing, there will be 1,000 negative tweets about me.
I follow a routine on a daily basis, which comprises dance class, gymnastics, and going to the gym. I also spend about half an hour on yoga, too.
I grew up with a sister and a younger brother in a house where every evening was spent performing a dance routine in front of our parents with my sister.
Every time I do a film, I have to make sure that when someone looks at me, they can’t recognise Disha. It has to be a character. I want to do strong roles.
I don’t want to come across as a pretty looking girl. Because it is very easy – wear good clothes, wear good make-up, and you’ll look good. I know my abilities.
Since childhood, my mother made sure I oiled my hair and conditioned them properly every week. I still follow that regimen. Plus, I have naturally good quality hair.
I do follow cleansing and hydrate my skin. It is really important. Especially before going to bed, you have to remove make-up, clean your skin, and hydrate your skin.
I don’t have newspapers in my house. I have a news application which only gives me important news, no Bollywood. So even if there is some report about me, I don’t know.
I think diet plays an important role before any beauty and skincare regime. Taking care of what you eat and drinking lots of water throughout the day always come first.
It was a very big decision when I decided to leave B. Tech to come to Mumbai. But they were always supportive. At one point, I felt I shouldn’t do it. My mother encouraged me then.
I don’t understand this concept of women-oriented films or stories based on women, because nobody uses the term, a ‘man-oriented’ film. Why do you have to separate girls from boys?
I have a professional life, and so does the media. Let’s face it: how can they come up with new gossip every day? So, they have to make stuff up about someone’s personal life, which is fine.
He is one of the finest and kindest human beings I have come across. When you meet him, you will understand why he is the Jackie Chan. It’s not just for his work but also the kind of person he is.
Work is important, no doubt, but one can end up neglecting family and friends in the bargain. So I have resolved not to let that happen and maintain work-life balance by taking time out for the people who matter the most to me.
I am a very shy and closed person. I stay in my house. The only time I go out is for award functions and maybe interviews. Because, this is part of my profession and I have to do it. Otherwise, I stay in my house or attend some classes.
It’s not that I don’t want to do commercial films, but if my part is just to look pretty, I’m not up for it. I’d do a role that expresses something. It’s not that I don’t want to look good, but give me a part where I have scope to perform.
Most actresses have multiple commitments, from films to endorsements, that require us to maintain a particular look over a long period. Hence, there is never an opportunity to experiment with hair, so we just settle for a neutral look that we can work with across projects.
I don’t want to become a star. I never wished to become an actor, even when I am here. When you decide to become an actor, you’ve to choose why you’re doing it. Are you doing it to become an actor or because you want to be famous? I am doing it because I love being in front of the camera.
We’ve all tried to bunk our gym session or dance class. A single routine can get monotonous. That’s why I have decided to make my fitness regime fun by incorporating different workouts into my schedule. From dancing to yoga, I plan to keep it as interesting as possible so I’m never bored of working out.
