SHOCKING! Pyaar Ka Punchnama actress Sonnalli Seygall REVEALS that a renowned casting director wanted her to go under the knife for a role

Sonnalli Seygall said in a statement, “It was recently when I tested for a well-known casting director for a fantastic role. I was very excited for this audition and prepared myself really well coz I really wanted to bag it! And I did! But on meeting the director there I was asked to make some changes on my body, unnaturally! It was a no brainer for me to say no, even though my heart broke… But I would Never put my body under the knife! I can’t name the director, as it was his vision, just doesn’t work for me.”

She spoke about losing out on a good film adding, “I am an emotional person, so I did cry but purely because I lost a great work opportunity. But on the other hand I gave myself a silent pat on my back for not succumbing to the pressures around me. Yes I felt that it was an opportunity lost.. rather let me put it this way.. it was an opportunity ‘sacrificed’ in order to stand by what I firmly believe. But having said that, I didn’t waste much time dwelling over it.. as I rather channelize my energies into better opportunities coming my way!

“The problem is about conditioning and perception. A lot of us grow up having certain stereotypes about how a woman/man should look, or how a heroine should look etc. I think beauty and sex appeal is something very raw and natural and it’s sad that so many women feel the pressure to look a certain way, just to feel and look sexy! But times are definitely better now and a lot of actors in our country are breaking that stereotype now and I hope we continue that way!” Sonnalli concluded.
