Quotes

“I was not coming here looking for name, fame and glamour because, by the grace of God, I have already had my share of it on the world stage and on the catwalk. I’m saying this at the risk of sounding conceited. But this is not pomposity, I’m just being honest.”

“As for the guy I shall marry, compatibility is most important for me. Because that’s what eventually holds people together. Attributes like honesty, trust, camaraderie, love, sensitivity, sense of humor are all fine but nothing is more important than compatibility.”

“I am not comfortable about kissing or nudity. I’ve never said I’d never kiss, or whatever on screen. I’ve always maintained I’d cross that bridge when I come to it. Again, I’m accused of playing it safe. The truth is, I don’t know what tomorrow holds. So I can’t make a close ended principle about it.”

“People know me more because of my eyes. So I decided to donate my eyes. It’s not that just for doing something, I donated my eyes. I found that useful so I did it. I like to do social service from my heart. Whatever is possible I do, but I don’t speak of that.”
