Kriti Sanon, who recently won the IIFA Awards 2022, is one of the well-established actresses in Bollywood. However, she also faced a lot of rejection during her struggling days. She revealed that she used to cry being rejected for her looks. She adds, “On some days, I used to cry because there was nothing to keep me busy. There were also times when I met a few people who told me that something was not right about me — someone told me, ‘You’re too good-looking. There has to be some sort of imperfection in you to look real on-screen.’ I think I did feel low, but at the same time, I did have people who believed in me a lot. That’s what you need.”

Raaz, Gunaah, Rakht, and Insaaf: The Justice are some of the many films that starred actor Dino Morea. He also believes that his attractive looks worked against him in Bollywood. In an interview with the Hindustan Times, he said, quoting, It takes guts to see me differently. Some casting directors come up with the excuse, and they don’t see me differently. I just get feedback from some that you are good-looking. I find it very bizarre; what’s my look got to do with casting me in a certain character? Just cast me. I can change my look. People just never saw me beyond my looks. Being good-looking sometimes works against you in Bollywood.”
