Sarika On Senior Actors INSULTING Her For Not Applying Makeup In 'Griha Pravesh': 'Yeh Aise Heroine Thodi Na Hoti Hai’
Veteran actress Sarika in a new interview spoke about receiving taunts from senior actors for not applying makeup in her film ‘Griha Pravesh’. She recalled how during the shoot of the movie senior actors' came to her and taunted her saying someone who hasn't “backcombed her hair or applied makeup' can't be a heroine.” Sarika also opened up about her daughters Shruti and Akshara Haasan and how cinema has evolved in all these years.

Speaking with Pinkvilla, the actress recalled, “When I did film Griha Pravesh, I didn't like using makeup and some of the senior actors came to me and said 'yeh kya hai na back combing kiya hai na makeup lagaya hai yeh aise heroine thodi na hoti hai (what is this, you have neither done backcombing nor applied makeup, this isn't how heroines are).' So that's the idea of growing and evolving of cinema.” ALSO READ: Kamal Haasan’s Ex-Wife Sarika REVEALS Why She Refused To Take Financial Help From Him: ‘I Slept In My Car, Took Baths At Friends Home’
