She may be coming from a family of glamorous girls who are doing well in B-Town. However, PYT Meera Chopra has put some restrictions, as far as her Bollywood sojourn is concerned. For starters, she is clear about neither wearing a bikini nor performing to any intimate scenes on screens.
In fact, even in a dozen odd films that Meera has done down South, she hasn't gone overtly bold despite her good looks and inviting persona. There are boundaries she has drawn around herself. This meant that it was a two year struggle for her to gain a foothold in Bollywood. However, she was willing to be patient instead of making any compromises.
Her perseverance paid as she signed Vikram Bhatt's 1920-LONDON and Ratan Jain/Satish Kaushik's GANG OF GHOSTS. As a matter of fact there was also another good offer that had come Meera's way but she had to let it go as it not just required her to step into a bikini but also go bold for the camera.
Confesses Meera, "See, being intimate is something which is out of my comfort zone. I can't do that. I had to opt out of the movie due to this very reason even though the overall package was very tempting."
Swearing by professional ethics, she doesn't spill the film's name. Meanwhile she acknowledges the fact that in real life she is quite uninhibited.
Says Meera, "I wear the shortest clothes in my real life as I am very comfortable in my attire. However to do that for camera is a different thing. Chote kapde pehenna ek baat hai. I can be hot and sexy in that. But why a bikini? I would rather hold that for the time being. I have waited for two years but not compromised with my stand. Why should I do that now?
