Quotes

  • “My dream partner would be extremely God fearing, caring, should love animals, kids and the list goes on and on…”
  • “I knew they (fans) were building a temple because they had asked for my permission. But I told them not to go with the construction as it was insane to waste such efforts, time and money for an actor. We had a similar situation here where temple was built for Kushboo madam and it had to be bulldozed. I was not happy in the first place when the temple was built and am not sad for it coming down” [About building a temple for her]
  • “Life is a gift given by God and I love it.”
  • “My dream role would be that of village girl.”
  • “My first day of shoot was my most unforgettable day”
  • “I dislike disloyalty”
  • “Love is the most wonderful feeling God has ever created.”
