    Disha Patani is a shy and reserved kind of person in real life. She had admitted, saying, "I am a big introvert person. Be it walking down the ramp or standing in a huge crowd, I get nervous when I am around a lot of people. Especially during fashion shows, I do feel nervous but I don't think too much.
