Sargun Mehta Discusses the Male-Dominated Industry, Claiming That “They Thought They Were Taking Me for a Ride.”
Sargun Mehta, who also produces the shows Udariyaan and Swaran Ghar, stated that you are sometimes taken for granted. Sargun Mehta, a popular actress, and producer who has won millions of hearts with her talent, spoke about her experience working in an industry dominated by men. According to the actress, some people dismiss you because you are a woman.
According to the Hindustan Times, the actress stated, “sometimes you are taken lightly.” But I try to look at it positively. I knew a little more when they thought I didn’t know anything and that they were taking me for a ride. I had done my homework and thus took them by surprise. That is how I win. I firmly believe that everything you perceive to be your weak point should be turned around to become your strength. So when they dismiss you, you can take them for a ride.”
Sargun, who also produces the shows Udariyaan and Swaran Ghar, stated that things are the same for men as well. “Perhaps in a different way,” she said, “but they face challenges along the way.” The reason for this is that we live in a world where people can’t see you win.”

Previously, the actress told India.com about Aamir Khan’s accent in Laal Singh Chaddha, saying, “If the superstar next does a Bengali film and uses too many Bengali words, we won’t be able to understand it.” Sir Aamir Khan is not a Punjabi, but he has accepted a role. Actors are expected to play a variety of roles. I believe he could have done better, but jitna bhi unhone kia hain bahot kaam and mehnat lagti hain sirf utna karne mein bhi,” she explained. Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan star in the lead roles in Laal Singh Chaddha.
Following this, Aamir responded to Mehta and other netizens’ criticism of his accent in the Laal Singh Chaddha trailer, saying, “What do you think of the trailer? The trailer is two minutes long, and our film is two and thirty minutes long. So it would be preferable if you could judge these aspects after seeing the film.”
After the trailer for Laal Singh Chaddha was released, Aamir made headlines for his Punjabi accent. His Punjabi accent sparked debate after it disappointed netzines. Sargun Mehta, a Punjabi actress, has responded and expressed her thoughts.
