“Yes, I have kissed on-screen, but I don’t feel comfortable doing it.” (2007)
“I am single but not ready to mingle . After my bad experience with Aaditya Datt, I am not going to jump into anything. I strongly believe in destiny. Things happen, when they have to. Right now my family is my first priority and my younger sister, who is studying in class X, needs a lot of attention. So love can wait.”
“Since my childhood I wanted to be in the glamour world. It was my dream to win the Miss India crown. When it happened I wanted to become an international model and feature in FTV.”
“For a small town girl like me with no film connections to make it big in Bollywood so early in my career would seem like a dream.”
“I want to be a queen. I have always been fascinated by the lifestyle of kings and queens and that’s what my dream role is. I want to be known as a good actress as well as a saleable one. I think I’ll make it,”
“I take that as a compliment. I think Bipasha is stunning and has a great body too. But I don’t want to be the next Bipasha Basu; I want people to know me for being Tanushree Dutta,” [on being compared with Bipasha Basu]
“I come from a conservative Bengali family and my personality was groomed according to strict social norms. Therefore i was shy and introvert. But then i went to a boarding school in Pune and my outlook towards life changed. I became more open and friendly and felt confident enough to participate in the Miss India Pageant. Winning the tittle changed my life”
“Every life runs on its own pace and rhythm, and we should not break that. One person can strike gold in ten years, while another can do it in two years. Hard work and focus is the key to success.”
“One can not make a hit by simply fitting kissing scenes in a film; the audience is not a fool,”
“My ambition was to win the Miss India crown and then do something else, but it didn’t go as planned and I landed up here.”
“I really wanted to do something different and I tried playing a negative shade in Raqeeb. And for the first time, critics gave me good reviews and didn’t sum up my performance with phrases like ‘capable of more, sexy and hot, glam doll”
“It seems everybody wants to dress me up. However, every time people have tried doing that, the result has drawn a lot of flak. I don’t know who to blame because I have a decent body and face. I have been a part of the fashion industry and it is an established fact that I can carry off a dress well. Either the designers aren’t making good clothes at all or I am jinxed,”
“For the past few months, I am learning Kathak. It’s all part of my fitness regime. Dancing is the healthy way to remain fit. Since I am doing a lot of stage shows, this is going to help me there too.”
“I’ve enjoyed working with him. His dedication and professionalism is worth praising. He is also a good person. So working with him all along was very easy. His sense of humor really refreshes you.” [About Emraan]
“I want to do a variety of roles, not just those requiring me to look glamorous. For me, it is very important that people know me as a good actress rather than just another sex symbol,??”
