Disha Patani said in an interview that she is looking for stronger roles and cannot go on a film signing spree to appear active in the public eye. "The story matters to me a lot. I can't do something I don't like. Just for the sake of being out there... Showing people I exist, I can't do that... Because it's a lot of work."
Disha Patani has revealed that people discouraged her when she decided to give up studies to pursue films but the only way to silence critics is to prove them wrong.
"If someone tells me, 'you can't do this', I get motivated, I feel 'I have to do this now'. People always pass judgements but at the end of the day, you know yourself," said Disha Patani in an interview.
After doing two out-and-out commercial films, Disha Patani said, "I know it's too early for me to ask for so much. I have just started. But in future, I want to do roles that inspire girls and women. I want girls to know that they are as strong as the boys."
Disha Patani had also featured in T-Series' single Befikra opposite Tiger Shroff. The duo shared amazing chemistry in the song and rumours of them dating each other sparked off ever since.

The actress is often spotted with Tiger's sister Krishna Shroff too.

Asked about a negative thing she feels she has in her personality, Disha Patani said, "I am socially super awkward but I can fake it well."
Disha Patani is one actress who isn't afraid of experimenting when it comes to her sartorial choices. She has a distinct taste which makes her stand out of the regular troop.
On her personal style statement, Disha Patani said in an interview, "I just wear what I like and I don't like to know much about style and what's going on in fashion. What I like, I usually wear that. Plus, I have a great team of make-up men and stylist, so they always come up with new ideas."
Disha Patani is a shy and reserved kind of person in real life. She had self-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 so much. I just try to focus on my work and give my 100 per cent to everything."
She further added, "I can't judge myself in terms of acting. Since I am very shy, I never see myself or watch my films. So, I don't know. But for sure I am getting more comfortable with the whole environment of filmmaking."
Disha Patani's latest Bollywood outing is Bharat, which hit theatres today. The Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer sees Disha as a trapeze artist. Though, this time around too, Disha has little to do in the film, the actress made sure to grab enough attention with her song 'Slow Motion'.
