Soha Ali Khan regrets doing Dil Maange More

The film had three leading ladies - Soha, Tulip Joshi and Ayesha Takia - opposite Shahid Kapoor.

Highlights

  • 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 career. "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 characters.
