Re­al­ity TV star Re­nee Dhyani (right) hasn’t even started her showbiz ca­reer prop­erly, and she is al­ready bat­tling stereo­typ­ing. “It’s funny how quickly peo­ple tend to stereo­type oth­ers. Af­ter I came out of the Bigg Boss house, I have been get­ting a lot of of­fers. But mostly, all the roles that I get of­fered want me to be a vamp,” says Re­nee.

“I feel it could be be­cause I am a lit­tle out­spo­ken and that might have come across on Bigg Boss too. Or it could also be an ex­ten­sion of the im­age from the other re­al­ity show I did for a youth chan­nel a while back,” says Re­nee, adding, “What­so­ever, I am not ready to give in.”

Ex­plain­ing her point of view, Re­nee says, “I don’t have a prob­lem be­ing a vamp on­screen, but I don’t want to play a woman who is out there to scheme and ruin lives. I am to­tally okay play­ing a char­ac­ter with neg­a­tive shades, but the thing with TV is that they present one woman as an ab­so­lutely neg­a­tive per­son while the other holier-than-thou,” she says.

“But I will take up a film with that kind of role be­cause movies have bet­ter de­vel­oped char­ac­ters and are not one-di­men­sional,” says the Delhi girl, who is in the city on a break.

“I am in the Cap­i­tal for a fort­night. There is noth­ing like sleep­ing in my fa­ther’s lap and eat­ing from my mom’s hands. The weather is lovely, it’s very pleas­ant. And my sis­ter and I have been go­ing shop­ping ev­ery­day,” says Re­nee, adding, “And I also got a chance to talk to my par­ents about Lalit (ac­tor Lalit Bisht, who she is dat­ing). My par­ents are happy that I am happy with him, and they like the guy al­ready.”
