The Shaukeens actress Lisa Haydon doesn’t want to get typecast as “hot”

The model turned actress wants to be perceived
as more than just hot…
Model-turned-actress Lisa Haydon , who does not
wish to be tagged as “hot”, says her performance
in Queen has helped people to pay attention to
her acting acumen.
“Before Queen, people perceived me (just) as a
model. I worked very hard to prove myself as a
good actor. I needed the right opportunity, and
now I feel people have started taking me
seriously as an actress and have started paying
attention to my talent,” Lisa said here.
She feels there has been an image change for her
after Queen.
“I don’t want to be termed as ‘hot’. It was
getting offensive after a point. Who wants to be
hot,” she asked while breaking into guffaws.
However, Lisa feels that after Queen, in which she
played Vijayalakshmi – an independent, fun-
loving and modern girl who befriends Kangana
Ranaut’s character – she is “getting stuck with
the ‘ bohemian free-spirit ‘ image”.
She admits it “is so much better than hot”, but is
clear that she doesn’t want to get “stuck with
any image”.
The actress’s new film is The Shaukeens.
Talking about the movie and her character, she
said: “In my opinion, my The Shaukeens character
Ahana is not hot. Vijayalakshmi (from Queen) is
hotter than Ahana though she does not do
anything to be hot – she burps, she snores, and
has an ‘I don’t give a damn’ attitude which
appeals to people. Ahana, on the other hand, is a
very innocent and naive girl.”
Directed by Abhishek Sharma, The Shaukeens
features Annu Kapoor, Anupam Kher and Piyush
“The three men have never met a girl like her and
they think she is a streetsmart girl because she is
very open about everything. The men think she
likes them, but for her, they are paternal figures,”
