I would like to live in with the person I want to marry before taking a final call on the decision; because it is one thing to fall in love and another thing to stay in love.”
“I carry my family name with me, I must admit, though not with any arrogance. But it does add to my self-worth.”
“I have always been choosy and all the films I have done so far, I have enjoyed working in them. So it’s good scripts that matter for me a lot.”
“I don’t fear the future or worry about what I will do if I don’t get any more roles. I have my Masters degree in international relations, banking job experience with Citibank, and I have also worked in developmental organisations. I know I will always have something to do in life.”
