Actress Rubina Dilaik who is currently locked inside Bigg Boss 14 house as a contestant is a big name in the television industry. In a career spanning 12 years, Rubina has played the main lead of many popular TV shows. However she hasn't ventured into Bollywood and as per Rubina her 'sour experience' with a famous Bollywood director kept her away from the medium. Before entering Bigg Boss house the actress in one of the interview opened up about the incident.
Talking to Siddharth Kannan before she entered the show, Rubina said 6 years back I really wanted to do work in Bollywood and I went for all the meetings but I didn't have a good experience. I found that television people are looked down upon, 'TV actor hai? accha kaunsa show kiya, hamne to dekha nahi'. Aapko aapke background, credentials ya approach like which car are you driving? Are you carrying a Louis Vuitton? If you have Jimmy Choo shoes waisa wala funda tha and I am not brand savy. You are judged for these things. Whereas, screen tests and everything are the last thing that matter. So these things left a very sour taste and I used to feel like, 'Really, aisa bhi hota hai?' This was long back and that time I was very naive."ALSO READ: Bigg Boss 14: Twitter Is 'So Proud' Of Rubina Dilaik As She Takes A Stand For LGBTQ Community; Makes Shehzad Deol Apologise For His Remark
Rubina went on sharing another bad experience she had with a big director/producer and said, "I would not name the director/producer who is a pretty big name in the industry. He asked me, 'Have you watched that film (one of his films)?' and I was like, 'No' that time I was in school and hailing from Shimla (Himachal Pradesh) and coming from a conservative family, there were restrictions on girls to not go out for movies alone and before 7pm we were asked to be home so no I hadn't seen that film. So he responded with, 'Really? you don't know the work I have done? I just feel like farting on your face'. And I was like 'Did I hear that right?'. He started laughing then. You are made sit on a chair and asked 'Tumhe pata hai maine kya kiya hai? Tum jaanti ho main kaun hoon? Tumhe pata hai tumhe kaun opportunity dene wala hai?. And that time the only thing going in my mind was I want to run from here."ALSO READ: Bigg Boss 14: CODE NAMES Of Contestants Rubina-Abhinav, Eijaz Khan, Pavitra Punia, Nikki Tamboli REVEALED- EXCLUSIVE
Rubina concluded by saying, "As an artist it doesn't matter which platform you are working for and which medium is given to you. I am going to excel the way I am. And all these people, I don't want to fan their egos or say 'Oh wow, Sir, not my cup of tea'. I am happy with my television."
