Celina Jaitly reveals the real reason behind leaving Bollywood, says 'It has nothing to do with my marriage'

Celina Jaitly made quite a mark in the Bollywood industry with some of the spectacular roles in No Entry, Janasheen, and others. While the actress was growing in her career, she suddenly decided to go off-camera and only made a comeback recently. While all this was history, the actress has finally come out with her reasons to do. She said, "You can take out the actor from the cinema but you cannot take out the cinema from the actor. I had taken a purposeful break from the cinema because of reasons best known to me and this had nothing to do with the fact that I got married. I was just tired and exhausted of how difficult it kept getting for an outsider to continuously strive to find the roles which celebrate the actor within.

 
She further added, "Having to constantly prove myself, I just got fed up with trying to please everyone and reached a point where I said ‘okay gotta take a break’, do some other things in life, recharge batteries and then whenever I’m ready, I will come back again. When my mom passed away last year, that’s when I decided to come back to the cinema because it was one of her last wishes that I return to acting."
 
Whether she would pick any roles or be selective in choosing her upcoming projects, she says, "I think the time is gone when we were calling them commercial or non-commercial cinema, especially with the OTT platforms coming in. I think we’re way beyond that today. Now it doesn’t matter how big or small a film is, all that matters is good content. Have I done a good content film? Yes, I have. Have it received a phenomenal response and positive reviews? Yes, we have won our first award at a very big international film festival in the US. I think we are a little bit past that era but definitely, I’m going to do good work whether that happens in a so-called commercial or non-commercial project, that doesn’t matter to me."
