Here like a circle of angels, many reputed directors Maniratnam, Bharathi Raja, Mahendra are like guide to new faces to bring out the hidden and till now unused talent.

My parents became fence sitters in allowing me. They don’t have inclination to send me for acting. ”

# “I’m more interested in doing commercially successful films.”

# “I meant that a film is not entirely heroine driven. It is not even driven by the hero. It’s the story and the script which makes a film a hit.”

# “I have no plans to get married atleast for another five years. Maybe my parents are thinking about finding a groom for me. ”

# “Some of the things that I had said before had created lot of controversies. These days I’m very careful. I don’t go about revealing bitter truths anymore.”

# “Success has no finishing line.”
