“I am enjoying alone. However, I look forward to living with my dream girl to share my grief and happiness. I am not in a hurry though. It might happen on its own.”
“I have become more relaxed and confident. Even today I am hugely lacking in self-confidence. There’s a huge level of dissatisfaction and turmoil. I guess that’s part of every actor’s personality.”
“I am very drawn to anything that epitomises being Indian. I don’t mean the picture perfect woman, rather someone who is traditional yet modern. A woman should be liberated and be her own person rather than be somebody else’s shadow.”
