Actress Lisa Haydon, who recently tied the knot with her long-time beau Dino Lalwani, says her life is more or less the same after marriage.
“Life has not changed much after marriage. I went straight back to work. But I guess changes come after having a baby, not after marriage, especially if you are married to the right person who understands your lifestyle and profession,” Lisa said.
She added: “I think I was married to my husband in mind before it happened officially. When you fall in love, you make a commitment to each other. It’s all about that.”
Lisa, who started her career as a model, has featured on the cover for popular lifestyle magazines. In 2010, she made her debut with the Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol-starrer “Aisha”.
Along with actress Kangana Ranaut, Lisa was also praised for her act in the 2014 hit film “Queen”. She even garnered Filmfare Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for the comedy-drama. Most recently, she was seen in Karan Johar’s “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”, which released in October last this year.
Since she is at the peak of her career, did she ever have a fear of being in a committed relationship?
Lisa said: “Oh no. Not at all. For me, life is nothing without love… and family is the most important thing for me. Everything else is a bonus. Yes, I am passionate about my work but my success is meaningless without my loved ones, my family and my husband. They are my priority.”
Lisa, who has stayed in Australia and the US, has no Bollywood background. So, is it the right time for newcomers to enter Bollywood?
“Yes, people are now more open to accepting those who are expressing themselves in a more honest way… and the audience is receiving that. It took me a while to find my niche, but now I know what kind of films are good for me. So, I explore them. People always appreciate such honesty. Since so many films are happening, actors can explore and experiment to find their place in the business. It’ great,” she said.
