Saaho actor Mandira Bedi: Why can’t a short-haired lady play a lover, a mother or a wife?

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. So, doesn’t she want to change her hairstyle for a variety of roles? “Well, this year I have a couple of acting assignments and I am travelling also. But the director told me that they could not relate to me with that long-hair look. Why can’t a short-haired lady play a lover, a mother or a wife? So they kept my look as it is.”

While she made her debut in Bollywood with the iconic film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, does she feel that her acting has taken a backstage in her career and hosting shows has taken centrestage?
