Pallavi Joshi on losing out films

Then there was a lot of work which came my way and I thought there was nothing in it apart from just going around the trees and dancing. I thought just because every film needs a heroine I am getting those offers. So I had decided not to accept those. But somewhere down the line I had also started realizing that I need to do something more through my acting than just entertaining people.I have a social responsibility and there needs to be some takeaway from your work. Hence you have stars and then you have actors and I’ve never considered myself to be an actor. I made sure to thoroughly research about my role and project.“
