Well, I accept that with all the gratitude and humility.’
Ranaut also said, ‘Sonam really needs to get her facts right about acting. Actors aren’t models. It’s a different technique to convey expressions and emotions and it has got nothing to do with the looks. And we should have a variety of actors just for the sake of casting. We don’t have right casting in our country. It’s high time we get rid of this six-pack brigade and glamorous looking people’.
