Stuck in stereotype courtesy my short hair: Mandira Bedi
Mumbai: Multi-talented personality Mandira Bedi says her short hair has got her caught in the stereotype game in the film industry.
The actress plays a negative character in "Saahoo", featuring Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor.
Mandira said: "I will leave for shooting in Abu Dhabi. I think people cannot imagine me in any other roles than that of a police officer or any negative character. I am stuck in stereotype courtesy my short hair."
Mandira recently completed a Tamil film named "Adangathey" in which she is playing a police officer.
I did not think about growing my hair for that. It is a stereotype that needs to go. Why can't a short-haired lady can play a lover, a mother or a wife? I am all of them."
Citing an incident, she said: "During the look test of my last released film 'Vodka Diaries' in which I played a poet, a romantic role, I wore a sari and tried out beautiful long hair piece. But the director told me that they could not relate me to that long hair look. So they keep my look as it is."
