Not all are starting from the same line; however, the finishing line is certainly the same. We all have to show how much money our films make or how many awards we win or what critical acclaim and commercial success our films have.
Maybe at 55, I would like to direct. I will go the Angelina Jolie way.
If a woman comes out saying she has been abused or assaulted, we should not start finding flaws in her character or try to dig up her past for murky details.
If you think that one should do a commercial picture because everyone is doing it and that one will become a big star after that, I think that if you don't have that grain in you, it will not happen.
I can't compete with really big stars. I'm not a big star; I'm just an actor who came from Delhi to pursue her passion.
Fashion bloggers will do their work; it's their job. So let them do it. I am not doing something to make them happy or to get friendly with them so that they write good stuff about me.
I'm only focusing on good work. I'm known to be a little choosy, and I'm proud of it.
Whether my film becomes commercially successful or not, only God can tell, or the box-office numbers. So why worry about it and get distracted?
Going the bold way somehow has a very negative connotation in Bollywood.
My conscious decision has always been to do work that's meaningful and play characters that give something to the film.
Oh yes, my best birthday gift was when my dad gifted me my first car in college. It was a Maruti Swift. I thought that was the coolest thing ever. It was so much fun, as I could completely show it off to my friends that I have my own car now and not my dad's car.
Co-directing is not possible with my brother. We have very different opinions.
I believe in equal pay for equal work. Gender, race, skin colour, or ethnicity should not be the parameters to hire someone or to decide how much they should be paid.
I just love watching 'Andaz Apna Apna.' Every single time, I end up laughing so much that my jaws start hurting.
As a woman, absolutely, I have had to deal with people making advances at me, but not just people from the business of film industry but people across different professions and different strata. I think it has a lot to do with power; it is not only limited to the film business.
The world is fixated on defining and redefining what is feminine. That is for every individual to decide for herself.
As an artist, I am very proud of 'Ek Thi Daayan.' It was a supernatural flick and a huge risk, since not many films are made like that.
I have always said that Twitter is my forum to talk to people about what's happening in my life.
I would like to say this for the record: that I am not trying to lose weight or gain weight. I am just trying to be the best version of myself, and that's really important.
I don't want to be the glam doll; that doesn't appeal to me at all.
