When there is no work, I create my own: Neha Dhupia

Actor Neha Dhupia says she has survived in the industry for so long because she believes in creating work when there is none. Having made her Hindi film debut in 2003 with 'Qayamat: City Under Threat', Dhupia went on to work in films like 'Julie' and 'Sheesha'.

She then gradually shifted to indie cinema with films such as 'Ek Chalis Ki Last Local', 'Mithya', 'Phas Gaye Re Obama' and 'Hindi Medium'. The actor will next feature in Vidya Balan-starrer 'Tumhari Sullu'.

Though it has been 15 years for her in films, in the last few years Dhupia says she is trying "new, different things". "The learning from my entire career is: never compare yourself to anyone because it'll destroy you. You've to wake up everyday and keep hustling. I don't think I've lasted so many years because of my crafts or relationships but because I wake up and hustle," she says in an interview with PTI.

"If there is something interesting happening, I reach out to people. When there is no work, I create my own. You have to put it out there that I am here to do good work and somehow or the other you will get it," she says.

Dhupia may have started her career with films where people took note of her glamorous side, the actor is not comfortable with the 'sex symbol' tag. "I really feel blessed that the notion has changed today. It's very disturbing when people call me sexy. I hate that word. People used to call me a 'sex symbol' and I am like please, I am not that person," she says. "...I don't think at any point I had a 'sex symbol' quality because of which people think I am hot. In my own head I am not. I don't suffer from low esteem but I am a realist and I know who I am."
