Disha Patani may have set social media on fire with her incredibly bold photos and videos but a viral video of her first audition in the entertainment industry seven years ago shows how the Baaghi 2 actress has come a long way.
In the old video, now gone viral, Disha, then 19 years of age, is seen auditioning for a role for a cold cream commercial. Daughter of an army officer, Disha is seen introducing herself, “Hi this is Disha, I am 19 and my height is 5 feet and 85 inches. Here’s my profile.”
A male voice in the video asks her if she is available for a shoot on any dates. Pat comes the reply, “Yes.” She then goes on to show her acting skills in several avatars while attempting to promote the unnamed cold cream. Her performance as a 19-year-old aspiring model shows just why she has been so successful in the glamour industry.
However, the surfacing of the viral video has prompted fans to ask when this innocent girl changed from promoting a cold cream to now doing bold photo shoots for Calvin Klein bra and undergarments. One user asked, “How was the journey from cold cream to Calvin Klein?” Another user Sumit Soni too asked similar a question by borrowing a song from Batti Gul Meter Chalu. He wrote, “Sochta hu key vo kitne masoom the.. Kya se kya ho gaye dekhte dekhte. (I am wondering just how innocent she used to be. So much changed as I kept watching.)” This was in reference to her bra and bikini controversy during Diwali and Christmas last year.
User Anujan Jain wrote, “Foolish cold cream to Calvin Klein real quick.” “Then Calvin Klein happened,” wrote Sudhanshu K Singh sarcastically.
Disha is rumoured to be engaged with her Baaghi 2 co-star Tiger Shroff. Breaking his silence on his son’s rumoured relationship with Disha, actor Jackie Shroff had recently said, “Tiger found his first friend who is a girl at 25, till then he never looked around.” He had added, “They share the same passions, dance and workout together.” Showering praises on Disha for being a disciplined girl because of her army background, the Baaghi 2 actor’s future father-in-law said, “She comes from a family of army officers, so she understands the value of discipline. Who knows they may get married in future or remain friends for life, for now they are just friends.”
On the work front, Disha will next be seen in Salman Khan’s Bharat, scheduled to be released during Eid this year.
