While suc­cess of­ten changes peo­ple, ac­tor Swara Bhaskar (left) says that she is not very dif­fer­ent from the time she en­tered the in­dus­try.

The ac­tor met di­rec­tor Sud­hir Mishra when she had just come to Mum­bai and says that he gave her one tip — to do away with her jho­laa (a boho chic bag). How­ever, the 27-yearold, who loves her jho­laas, re­fused to let go. “Sud­hir sir took one look at me. I was those fresh-off-the-boat, straight-out-of-univer­sity type as­pir­ing ac­tors. I re­mem­ber Sud­hir sir look­ing at my khaadi kurta and jeans and jho­laa, and with a poker face, he said to me, ‘Lose that jho­laa!’ And al­most re­flex­ively, I clutched it and replied, ‘No! It’s my soul!’” says the ac­tor.

Swara adds that although she has up­dated her fash­ion sense, she has still not given up her jho­laa. “Well! I learnt how to wear heels and dress up for red car­pet events but I still have my jho­laa. Some things never change.”
