“I don’t touch alcohol. I only drink a Coca Cola or a Thums Up, even if I take a drop of wine I’ll drop down. Most people who form this judgement that I drink have never even met me. So it’s wrong to form an judgement like that. As far as being a smoker is concerned, yes, I do smoke.”
“A lot of people have told me I’ll die young which is strange because I already feel I’ve lived a lifetime. Honestly, I don’t believe in all these predictions and soothsayers because if they were so correct then they would all be millionaires by now. Sometimes I do hear them out just for my own amusement.”
“People don’t realise that people can’t become famous or celebrities or whatever you call it unless and until people recognise you to be one. India recognised me to be one. I knew that if I had to work I wouldn’t have to struggle in India again, whereas I would have to do so abroad.”
“I can sleep for two hours and wake up in the morning and still be active but for an actress, it is very important to get a good sleep!”
“As Femina Miss India, I saw so many poor children and from so close, that I wanted to adopt a girl child. It took me years to get one.”
“I’m basically a very impulsive person and I have always done what I’ve felt is right. Therefore I’ve just followed my instincts. If they turn out right I’ll call it strategy”
“I have many memorable moments in my treasure-chest of memories but the day I became a mother is something special. On June 30, 2000 the courts handed me my daughter, Renee. I loved Renee from the first time I laid eyes on her.”
“I am totally a beach person. I love South America and I’ve been there lots of times, specially Venezuela and Brazil. They are great vacation cities. There is not a single country in South America that I have not been to. Among the places I haven’t seen but which I would love to visit, Spain tops my list.”
“Yes, I am a night person but I prefer staying awake at home till late at night. I rarely go to any pub. I would rather hang out at home with loud music and dance in my room. Abroad I love going to restaurants like ‘Sky Bar’ in Los Angeles and ‘Tao’ in New York.”
“I feel I started my life when I won at Goa – The Miss India contest. Then another memorable moment was when I won the Miss Universe crown in Manila. But none of those moments compare to what I felt on July 31 in 2001. That was when the court gave me Renee’s adoption rights. Renee means “to be born again”, and after having her in my life, I feel reborn. I don’t want anything to go wrong for her ever. So I am that much more careful with my life now. No more rash driving. Being a mother, I don’t think anything has topped the moment yet.”
“The reason why I wanted to be famous! No one’s asked me that one so I am going to tell it now. I have always thought that a person is born, lives his life, goes through life in a certain way, maybe does some good things that everyone applauds… maybe your family, maybe your friends. But when you die, you want to have touched a few more lives. You want people to feel the loss when you go and miss you. I want to be famous because I want my fans to become my extended family.”
“I’m 30, and enjoying every bit of it. I haven’t changed a thing that I don’t like wearing and the only reason I don’t wear it is ‘coz I don’t like it on myself. I reveal when I feel like it. It’s about freedom of choice, not age. If you are comfortable with it, wear it.”
