No other city can com­pete with Delhi, when it comes to the city’s food, peo­ple, or hang­out spots RE­NEE DHYANI, AC­TOR

Born and raised in Delhi, tele­vi­sion ac­tor, Re­nee Dhyani was in the Cap­i­tal re­cently, to visit her fam­ily. She pro­claimed her love for the city when we caught up with her. She says the time spent in the city has made her rough and tough. “No other city can com­pete with Delhi, when it comes to the city’s food, peo­ple, or hang­out spots. And un­like Mum­bai, there is a lot of love and care here. Del­hi­ites take out time to talk and bond with each other,” says Dhyani.

The Delhi girl, who cur­rently fea­tures in a daily soap, had taken a break from act­ing in 2013 all of a sud­den. She ex­plains the rea­son: “I went into de­pres­sion af­ter a break up and needed time to cope with it. So I quit act­ing and re­turned to Delhi, where I started work­ing in cor­po­rate sec­tor. How­ever, my fa­ther asked me to go back to Mum­bai again and start work­ing in the in­dus­try.”

Dhyani be­lieves that you have to wear a mask in Mum­bai and pre­tend to be al­ways happy and cheer­ful. “Mum­bai is a dif­fer­ent world al­to­gether. I have moulded my­self ac­cord­ing to the city, which is im­por­tant to sur­vive in the in­dus­try. I am very up­front but I change ac­cord­ingly,” says the ac­tor. Al­though Dhyani loves Delhi but she feels that the city is un­safe for women. She says, “I have ex­pe­ri­enced it my­self. Hav­ing lived in Mum­bai, I can say that the Cap­i­tal of In­dia is not safe.”
