Have trouble reading between the lines? Have heard a particular answer from Bollywood stars one time too many? Here's what some of these stock answers actually mean.

We were caught off-guard recently when Sonakshi Sinha, often berated for her regressive and painfully repetitive roles in almost all her films, revealed that her next film will be a woman-centric story.

But don't Sona and her contemporaries have ready answers to certain difficult and uncomfortable questions?

So when she says a woman-centric film, does she actually mean, 'This time, I play REALLY hard to get while the chauvinist, egotist, reeking-of-entitlement hero stalks and harasses me in order to win my affection?'

While that's some food for thought right there for you, we try to decode some more jaded answers.

Take a look!

What they say:  'I am a big foodie. I also have a very good metabolism and don't need to work out and/or follow any diet. I often gorge on gulab jamuns, chaat, samosas and suchlike.'

What they actually mean: 'My metabolism is as good as the next person's. I work out six days a week, two hours a day, and sniff at a gulab jamun or two to indulge my sweet tooth.

'I also end my day crying into a bowl of gluten/carb-free meal that contains unpronounceable ingredients.'
