Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani actress Drashti Dhami was the latest guest on The Greedy Closet. She was accompanied by designer Payal Singhal on the Monica Dogra-hosted chat show. During her appearance, Drashti spoke at length about her early days in the industry, journey to stardom, being named one of the Sexiest Asian Women and impressed one and all with her blunt replies in a rapid fire segment. She even recalled a certain incident where she had to seek permission from 17 relatives for a particular photoshoot.
“I used to do South ads, I used to go to Chennai and do these three ads back to back. I wouldn’t understand a word. After doing several ads my mother was like, listen, start working otherwise I am going to get you married. And I didn’t want to get married at that point. So, I started doing TV and there has been no looking back. I think I got lucky,” Drashti asserted when asked about her initial days in the industry. Divulging details about a particular photoshoot, she said, “I actually went for a photoshoot and I refused to do it because they gave me a really short skirt. I was not comfortable wearing it. The director and everyone started calling me saying listen we really want you to do this, we won’t give you a short skirt. Then I had to call 17 people in my family. My cousin called all these people and told them – ‘Relax, I know what she is doing. I am going to be with her, so let her do it.’ Then I finally did it.”
During the rapid-fire round, Drashti was asked to name a celebrity who she feels should be taken down by the fashion police immediately. “Kangana Ranaut,” pat came her reply! Asked to name an actor who is overrated and one who is underrated, Drashti answered, “Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya is overrated and I think I am underrated.” She also admitted to taking videos of co-stars to mock them later for their performances.
Shunning her onscreen bahu image, Dhrashti gets red carpet ready in an avant-garde yet comfortable traditional outfit by leading fashion designer, Payal Singhal, at the end of this episode of The Greedy Closet. Watch the full episode here:
