Mahie Gill is usually portrayed  onscreen as bold girl but, in real life, she is quite the opposite it is said. However, this hasn’t stopped her from talking about certain favours sought by certain directors during her initial days in the film industry.

The actor shares that there have been instances when people tried to make sexual advances to her in return for work. “It happened with me a few times. I don’t even remember the name of the directors. I had to meet a director, so I wore a [salwar] suit and went, and he told me, ‘If you wear a suit and come, nobody is going to cast you in a film.’ Then, I met another director and he tells me, ‘I want to see how you look in a nightie’. So, you see, there are idiots all around.”

Mahie adds that such incidents made her disillusioned about the happenings in the industry. “I was so new to Mumbai, so, I didn’t know who was right and who was wrong. And when people know you are new in the industry and struggling while they’ve been sitting in Mumbai for so many years, you tend to listen to them. I mean, I actually started to think that ‘achha, aisa hota hai ki suit pehnne se role nahi milte aur koi kaam nahi dega?’ So, with everyone trying to give you free advice, it’s very difficult to meet the right kind of people,” adds Mahie.

Mahie will next be seen in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3.

Asked how she handled the situation, the actress says, “I was anyway nervous while meeting people, so, whenever someone tried to give me stupid logic or guide me in any way, I used to run away. I just used to leave that place.”
