Malaika Arora said in an interview that this year the emphasis will be not only on the way models look but also their backstory on the show. "It's now about the journey from where they've come, how they made it Mumbai and their dreams and aspirations. We really tap into their journey. It gives us a better insight into the girls, some of them don't have money, don't know how to put on a lipstick but by the end of it they just transform." Malaika is seen on different reality shows on TV but has largely stayed away from acting on the big screen, something which she doesn't feel is a "necessity."
In the wake of the #MeToo movement gaining momentum in Bollywood, Malaika Arora said in an interview that it is important to create safe working environment for women and believes the only way to achieve that is if women come out and name perpetrators. "We can keep talking about it that we want to work in a safe environment. But the only way we can achieve that is when we talk about it and actually call out the supposed perpetrators. That's the only way," Malaika told PTI.

Even though she comes from a family of powerful actors like Prithviraj Kapoor, Raj Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor and Randhir Kapoor, actress Karisma Kapoor said in a recent interview that her journey of carving a niche for herself in the Hindi film industry has not been easy.
Karisma Kapoor said, "I believe that my family has been the most formidable film dynasty that the Indian cinema has seen. My journey of carving a niche for myself in this industry hasn't been the easiest. While the longstanding legacy of my family did inspire me to be a part of this industry, I've had to work very hard for that recognition. With generations behind you, it does take a whole lot of skill and talent to be the best version of yourself."

"It's quite a layered character that I portray in 'Jalebi...' and I needed to deviate and cut off completely from the world to get into a different zone as a character. I'm really glad it proved beneficial and worked to my advantage," Rhea said in a statement.
