Sanya Malhotra who hails in the industry as the Dangal girl with a blockbuster superhit has also proved herself to be a charmer at a recent event in the capital city.
Talking about the same, the actress says, "Things are changing as people are making more content-driven films, just like the films I have done. In Pataakha, I had to look completely different. Now even female actors are changing their looks, they don't put themselves as conventional actors, who are only looking pretty and dancing."
Further, she says, "This is not only for an actress but for everyone. After posting a picture, they need validation from random people and they think that even if they get one 'like', they start feeling that they are extremely pretty. There are times when we are not wearing make-up and then people pass comments like, "Oh she looks like this without makeup". To be honest personally, this doesn't affect me now."
The actress who is praised for her bold choice of roles, believes in being in her own skin and not changing herself for others. Adding to it, she says, "This used to constantly worry me. But after a few months, I stopped and started feeling that, 'I can't do this'. My happiness and my work come first. It is ok if I don't look nice, it's ok if I go without make-up and I am looking really bad and people are commenting about my looks. I really don't mind because, yes, I look like this and it's their wish if they want to see me or not. So I think that validation is a problem personally, I have stopped seeking it."
