“Salman is a very warm person and makes you feel very comfortable on and off the screen. He is among the few actors who gives you the required space to be the person you are and this helps in evolving as an actor. He stretched his entire support so that I deliver my best and our chemistry looks great on screen.”
“I was always very self-confident, which people often mistook as brashness. But on a lighter note, I miss people making those ‘anti Kareena’ comments. Why isn’t anybody doing that anymore?.”
“I do one hour of yoga every day. With that I do cardio exercises and eat good, wholesome vegetarian food.”
“Acting is my passion. It’s something I enjoy doing so much that I will probably do it till I am 70. There is nothing else that I know. It is in my blood.”
“I like to be the best that I can be and only Bollywood offers me that opportunity. Why go there when I know that I will never be a Julia Roberts? Actors who think that they will make it big in Hollywood are delusional. They will never be given the same status as a top star there. I’d rather do my own thing and enjoy life here to the fullest.”
“I don’t think I can have that much alcohol! I don’t enjoy drinking, and I hope people don’t decide to get married in a drunken state!”
“I belong to a family that eats, breathes and drinks films. In all honesty, we weren’t expected to study so that we could grow up to become doctors.”
“Ever since I was a kid, I knew my sister was going to join the industry. I used to see her talking about films. Both of us would chat about it as well. In our family, women were not supposed to join the industry. I guess my sister broke the ice and I am following the tradition.”
“I have always admired Nargisji and Meena Kumari. They are my idols. I want to and hope to be like them.”
