When asked the reason why her acting talent was not explored much in Bollywood, Raima says that she doesn't think like that.
"I am very lazy. I have never gone to a director and asked to give a movie. I feel if a film is in my destiny, it will come to me," she told IANS.
"Also, I have never gone for auditions because I am scared of it. I have never tried Bollywood that much. I get frightened when I go on to the stage. I feel I have missed out on some of the biggest films (because of this)," she added.
Raima will next be seen in Bollywood film titled "Bollywood Diaries".
Talking about her character in the film, she said: "I am playing a girl called Imli in the film. She is very filmy and she wants to be part of Bollywood film. She is full of life and keeps on thinking that when will someone notice her and give her a film."
"Bollywood Diaries" also features Ashish Vidyarthi, Karuna Pandey and Vineet Singh along with debutant Salim Diwan. The film is slated to release on February 26.
