Soha Ali Khan still cannot figure out why she opted to make her debut with 2004 film Dil Maange More, which had three actresses in the lead.
The 35-year-old actress, who was new to Bollywood at that
time, said it was a terrible decision.
"I don't know why I chose to make my debut with Dil
Maange More. The film had three leading ladies -- me, Tulip
Joshi and Ayesha Takia -- opposite Shahid Kapoor. I was fresh
to Bollywood at that time because I had just come back from
England and had no clue about hero-heroine dynamics in India,"
Soha said here while discussing the portrayal of women in
cinema and TV at an event.
Soha said she took the film because she found her
character progressive because she dumps her boyfriend over her
"When I was asked a character out of three, I chose Neha
because she is ambitious. At an young age of 21 she chooses
her career over boyfriend. It was again a wrong decision taken
by me because in Hindi films, actresses keep their partner
over any other thing," she said.
But the War Chod Na Yaar actress is happy that cinema
has changed over the period and she gets to play strong
