New Delhi: Getting dolled up was not Ritika Singh's style when she was a kick boxer alone. Now that she has stepped into filmdom with "Saala Khadoos", she says she has learnt a thing or two about make-up from her co-star R. Madhavan.

"Maddy (Madhavan) sir has taught me a lot about make-up, dress up and how to wear all these girly dresses and behave like a girl, be presentable in public," Ritika told IANS.

"He especially taught me a lot about make-up, and used to call me to his vanity van and say, 'Ritika, okay watch how I do my make-up, how I am covering this and that... How to seal the
make-up.'

"He's a professional, a champion at it. But I swear I still can't do it. The maximum I can do is a kajal (kohl) and a lip balm. So I've learnt how to do that," the 22-year-old added.

Landing an opportunity in the world of acting, Ritika said, has not brought any change in the person that she is. But she admits "there's a change in the way I dress up, in how I do my hair... basically, I have learnt how to be presentable".

"It's difficult, but Madhavan sir has been there to guide me. So, I'm trying to learn more."
