Rubina Dilaik is one of the most loved and looked up-to-actresses in the TV industry. She is the one who has been a source of inspiration to many over the years. She essayed powerful roles in shows like Choti Bahu, Shakti: Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki. But in recent years, the actress has proven her mettle in reality shows like Bigg Boss, Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa and Khatron Ke Khiladi.
In a recent chat with Etimes, Rubina spoke about broking stereotypes, which of course is something which is normal for her. She said, “In these years, I have broken many stereotypes that people had about me as a person and as an actor. I broke the stereotype of being chote shehar ki ladki hai, sirf rone dhone wale characters hi kar payegi. Initially when I joined the industry, people thought I couldn’t be the main lead because I had a chubby and round face. I managed to change that by bagging lead roles.”
She added, “By doing shows like Jeannie and Juju, Saas Bina Sasural and Shakti, I broke another thought that actresses on TV can only play damsels in distress. Then I did Bigg Boss and later Khatronn Ke Khiladi and Jhalak Dikhlaa Ja. I have always challenged myself over these years and chosen to do things that are unusual and unexpected.”
Her self belief has helped her in her journey. “It has helped me at every point. And all these experiences have also helped me learn so much and grow as an individual,” shared Rubina.
