During an interview with Indian Express, Sobhita Dhulipala revealed that in her past experience working in advertising, she faced frequent comments about her inadequate fairness and lack of conventional beauty. Nevertheless, these remarks did not discourage her; instead, they helped her recognize that society's definition of beauty was limited and restricted. She said, “When you are starting out, everything is a battle. I am not from the movies. I remember in my ad auditions I was told many times that I am not ‘gori’ (fair) enough. There were these things which you see at ad level, where I was told to my face that I am not pretty enough. Not that I was (dejected).”

In response, she explained that rather than allowing those opinions to discourage her, she began exploring innovative ways to remain involved in the industry she deeply cared about, regardless of others' perceptions of her appearance. Her passion for the field fueled her determination to find alternative avenues where she could express her creativity. “That’s when you start thinking out of the box, instead of waiting for a brilliant successful commercial filmmaker to ‘discover’ you. What is in my control is to go for auditions, give my 100 percent,” said the actress.

Talking about the Night Manager 2, the first part saw the clash between Shelly Rungta (Anil Kapoor) and Shaan Sengupta (Aditya Roy Kapur), the new update is that fans will see new alliances being formed in the upcoming season. Directed by Sandeep Modi, the web show features Tilottama Shome in the character of RAW officer Lipika Rao.  Get set for a journey of twists, turns and thrill with The Night Manager: Part 2 that will premiere on Disney+ Hotstar on June 30.
