Model-actress Lisa Haydon said that her biggest struggle as an actor was the perception before Queen was released that she can't act.
"People did not perceive me as someone who could act and Queen was my opportunity to show them that I am not just a model as I can play a character too," Lisa told IANS.
"I believe in something called the big break. Aisha was a small role but Queen is like my first film. People started believing in me after that," she added.
Lisa, who made her acting debut with the 2010 film Aisha, made a career-defining move with the portrayal of Paris-based Bohemian single mother in Vikas Bahl's Queen.
She later on went on to feature in The Shaukeens and a few other movies.
When asked about how she looks at the competition in the film industry, Lisa said: "I don't really feel like that. If there is a project that is meant for me, it will come my way. I know nobody can do what I do. I don't believe in competition and there is enough work for everyone."
Lisa is currently busy promoting her film Housefull 3, co-starring actors Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Abhishek Bachchan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon.
The film is directed by Sajid-Farhad and will release on June 3.
