Comfortable in her skin

Comfortable in her skin

Young and gorgeous but more keen to let her work speak for her than her appearance, actress Shraddha Kapoor agrees “beauty lies in the eyes of beholder” and she will not get hassled if she is photographed without make-up.

Asked if she is scared to go out without make-up now that she is one of most sought-after actresses in Bollywood, Shraddha said, “All the shutterbugs have got a picture of me without make-up already.”

“There are many times when I am out and I don’t know whether there is a photographer or not and I am caught without make-up. I am comfortable being shot without make-up. I think you have to be comfortable with your own skin and then make-up or no make-up, it won’t bother you much,” added the ‘Ek Villain’ fame actress who walked for the ramp recently.

The 26-year-old actress feels that “make-up is a very special moment in every girl’s life” and recalls the time when she put it on first to attend an annual function during her childhood days.

“I was very young when I tried make-up for the first time. I was in junior KG class when I attended an annual function. There was a ‘qawwali’ song with a bunch of girls and I saw the pink shade of lipstick that my mom always used to wear. I was waiting to wear that lipstick and have some make up and blush. I also have the picture of that day and that’s when I was allowed to wear make-up,” said the daughter of actor Shakti Kapoor.

Shraddha, who began her Bollywood journey with films like ‘Teen Patti’ and ‘Luv Ka The End’, made it big with ‘Aashiqui 2’ and ‘Ek Villain’.

On whether she gives make-up inputs during shoots, the actress said: “Absolutely. If I see something, I definitely give my input. But, there are so many talented make-up artistes out there with so many ideas that it is always great to work with them.”
