But I further said that I would use make-up if it is required in the films," she explained.

Nimisha Sajayan reminisces her sweet childhood home
Nimisha says she used to be a mischievous girl in her childhood.

"People raised questions after coming across some of my photos where I have used make-up. What I have to say is this... Applying make-up is imperative while doing a film photo-shoot, channel programmes, magazine photo-shoot and so on. That's part of my professional requirement and I will do that. But disliking the use of make-up is part of my personal life. I received several questions on social media. As I am not able to reply to all of them, I am putting up this post," she added.
