"I didn't want to be an actress. I was too shy to ever believe I could be in front of the camera. I didn't like being clicked; I was that wary. Then I landed up here," Disha Patani had candidly confessed in an interview with Filmfare magazine. While growing up, she aspired to be an Air Force pilot, but destiny had some other plans in store for her.
The actress began her career as a model at the age of 18 while she was still pursuing her studies. At the same time, she also starred in a few commercials, but it was her advertisement for a chocolate brand which caught everyone's attention.
Soon, Disha made her acting debut with Puri Jagannadh's Telugu film Loafer in 2015. The following year, it was Bollywood calling for the diva with late actor Sushant Singh Rajput's MS Dhoni: The Untold Story. Within a short span of time, this Bareilly girl made her own space in the showbiz. While boys crush over her, the girls always gush over her for her impeccable fashion sense.
Off screen, Disha's social media game is on point. Her haute Instagram posts often took the social media by storm. However, the actress doesn't consider herself to be hot. Instead, Disha likes to describe herself as a 'regular girl who believes in simplicity'.
