I'm not the type who'll yell about my achievements from the rooftops.

I was studying to be an architect, I wasn't plotting to join the movies. Films were just another career option. I took acting up with the same schoolgirl enthusiasm I had for examinations. Acting is a job and I take it very seriously.

But I have made no conscious effort to look battered and bruised. It is just the way one feels when one is put in a certain traumatic situation.

We'll cross the bridge when we reach it, ... But yeah. We - let's see. We'll work on the story, work on the scene. I'll work on the part and, and let's see.

People just came in throngs and stood around. It was very overwhelming for my co-stars.

I know for a fact that if there's a role which I am suited for, I'll be signed on. I'll never go begging.

Okay, let's take statistics. How many interviews have I given you in the last six years? Just five or six? Doesn't that say something? I hate to sound immodest, but this dates back to my personality since the age of 13. I've always got attention, which at times has been quite unwarranted.

I was more excited than scared, at the opportunity to work in an English movie.

Right now, I'm following the Buddhist principle: Smile as abuse is hurled your way and this too shall pass.
