Disha reveals she came to Mumbai with only Rs. 500
Disha Patani is among the most sought-after actresses in Bollywood today. From appearing in television commercials to starring in one of the biggest opening films, 'Baaghi 2', Disha has certainly come a long way. And the best part is she remains as humble as ever. While revisiting her struggling days, Disha revealed that she had come to Mumbai with only Rs. 500. Here's more about her journey.
"I left my studies and came to Mumbai"
The journey up until here was not at all easy for Disha. Reminiscing it, the 'MS Dhoni: The Untold Story' actress said, "I left my studies and came to Mumbai. I only had Rs. 500. I was living alone and made my own money." "I auditioned a lot, mostly for TV commercials as there was this constant pressure of paying rent," she added.
Things didn't fall in place at first for Disha
"A film was supposed to start and they replaced me with someone else. That was my launch film. I learned early that rejections make you stronger. Each time you feel there's something missing in you, you get that motivation to work harder," she said.
Meanwhile, 'Baaghi 2' has taken the box office by storm
The 25-year-old actress is all smiles as 'Baaghi 2' has raked in a massive total in its opening weekend. Also starring Tiger Shroff, the film is on its way to becoming Disha's second Rs. 100 crore grosser after 'MS Dhoni: The Untold Story'. She has also appeared in an Indo-Chinese film, 'Kung Fu Yoga', along with Jackie Chan.
