Took me a while to find my feet in Bollywood: Diana
New Delhi: From the shy and simple Meera of Cocktail to the vivacious and free-spirited Happy of Happy Bhag Jayegi, Diana Penty, who will next be seen in its sequel Happy Phir Bhag Jayegi, is glad her sophomore film itself gave her a chance to break the mould and find her feet in Bollywood, where she is now in a "happy" space.
Looking back at her career, the model-turned-actor said: "Cocktail was the perfect debut but I knew that with it came a certain standard that I had to try and live up to moving forward. So I guess there was a certain pressure to choose the right script and do the right kind of film. At that time, I was very new to the industry."
"I didn't know too many people and didn't have anyone to really guide me. It took me a while to figure out how to proceed, what direction to take," she added.
Now as Happy Phir Bhag Jayegi – which also features Sonakshi Sinha – gears up for release next month, Diana feels excited about how there has been a "remarkable" change in industry for women in couple of years.
