“I have certain parameters when it comes to my costumes. I will only wear clothes, in which I am comfortable. The idea is indeed to look glamorous.”
“I have never planned my career. Everything happened for the good. As a heroine, I can’t afford to be selective and Indian cinema is mainly male-dominated. Unlike Hollywood where scripts are written for heroines, here we just play second fiddle to heroes.”
“I am playing as many different characters as possible right now. I am choosing it in such a way to ensure that I am not a mere glam doll who appears for song sequence and disappears.”
“What I have learnt over the years is to relax in front of the camera, a lot of good work happens when you try not to be superficial and enjoy, live for that moment. After crossing the language hurdle initially, I have begun to concentrate on giving a depth to my work.”
“When I choose a script, I look at who is the director and then decide. Cinema is a director’s medium and vision unlike theatre which is an actor’s medium. In cinema when the camera rolls on, it is the work of the director and I view it that way.”
