Every television actor harbours the dream of venturing into Bollywood and making a name for themselves. However, not all actors try their luck in making the transition from the small screen to the silver screen.

Drop-dead gorgeous actress Rubina Dilaik, who is currently seen in ‘Bigg Boss 14′, is one of the most popular actresses in the telly land. However, unlike some of her colleagues, she was never seen in any Bollywood film. Well, Rubina had recently revealed that she did try to enter film industry around six years ago but the kind of experience that she had made her stick to the television.

Read on to know about her unpleasant meeting with a top director.

Recalling about her experience, Rubina revealed that television actors are looked down upon in the film industry. She even said that people judge you by the clothes you wear or the brands you carry and that no one cares to take your screen test.

Before entering the ‘Bigg Boss 14’ house, Rubina in an interview with Siddharth Kannan had said, “6 years back I really wanted to do work in Bollywood and I went for all the meetings but I didn’t have a good experience. I found that television people are looked down upon, ‘TV actor hai? accha kaunsa show kiya, hamne to dekha nahi’. Aapko aapke background, credentials ya approach like which car are you driving? Are you carrying a Louis Vuitton? If you have Jimmy Choo shoes waisa wala funda tha and  I am not brand savy. You are judged for these things. Whereas, screen tests and everything are the last thing that matter. So these things left a very sour taste and I used to feel like, ‘Really, aisa bhi hota hai?’ This was long back and that time I was very naive.”

Further recalling a very unpleasant meeting with a top Bollywood director, Rubina shared, “I would not name the director/producer who is a pretty big name in the industry. He asked me, ‘Have you watched that film (one of his films)?’ and I was like, ‘No’ that time I was in school and hailing from Shimla (Himachal Pradesh) and coming from a conservative family, there were restrictions on girls to not go out for movies Alone and before 7pm we were asked to be home so no I hadn’t seen that film. So he responded with, ‘Really? you don’t know the work I have done? I just feel like farting on your face’. And I was like ‘Did I hear that right?’. He started laughing then. You are made sit on a chair and asked ‘Tumhe pata hai maine kya kiya hai? Tum jaanti ho main kaun hoon? Tumhe pata hai tumhe kaun opportunity dene wala hai?. And that time the only thing going in my mind was I want to run from here.”

Well, now we understand why we never got to see such a talented actress in Hindi films. On the work front, the actress has hit shows like ‘Chotti Bahu’, ‘Jeannie Aur Juju’ and ‘Shakti – Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki’ to her credit. She is currently seen in ‘Bigg Boss 14’ along with her husband Abhinav Shukla.
