--- Personal Quotes ---

"For me romance is probably just watching a movie together. It is being with that person and connecting
with him. I find all these flowers and chocolates superficial."

"I have not found love. It has been a while since my last relationship. But I understand love better than
ever because of not finding it."

"I can’t act all my life. After some time, I would like to have a family and kids. I’d like to spend time
with them. I hope one day I will spend a life away from the arclights."

"I constantly doubt myself. I only feel confident in front of the camera."

"Contrary to popular belief, I'm not a very confident person. It takes me time to open up."

"The way you see me is the way I am."

"I am scared of calling myself a star. I never will. I guess that is something for people to decide. I just
go on the sets, do my work and get back. It doesn't matter to me whether the film’s poster and
publicity plans give me importance or not."

"I have an obsession with moisturizers and I am not kidding. In my house there is a moisturiser

"I was very young when I was in RNBDJ and that journey had enabled me as an actor. I am not very
confident of my growth as an actor but I am very confident of my growth as a person."

"The way a man smells turns me on in a big way."

"I am blessed with very good skin, but because of the damage from all the make up we apply and
pollution I wash my face regularly. I drink lots of water and try to be happy."

"I was a tall girl (in school) and people took notice of me easily. My parents had friends, who used to
tell me, “You should be a model.” When this girl in my colony in Bengaluru appeared in a print
advertisement in Reader’s Digest, it got me thinking. I was 10 and I said to myself, “Even I want to do
this. I want to be seen and be famous”."

"My fortune lets me invest in things I love — cars and real estate. I have no interest in luxury clothes,
shoes and bags. I’m a real estate junkie — I have two homes. Recently, I also bought a Porsche
Panamera and a new Range Rover. The reason I bought a Porsche Panamera is because I used to
jump out of my Range Rover. Sometimes, when I wore a sari, it would come undone!"

"It’s difficult to be the way I am. After my film career ends, I don’t want to look at it with any regrets.
Even if I’m a huge failure two years from now, at least I’d be able to say that I lived life on my terms
and I didn’t conform to to be here. I have complete security and faith in my talent to be able to
appreciate someone else’s work when it’s good. Sure, when I feel negativity, I get angry and cry a lot.
But at the end of the day, you do what’s in your control and it’s in my control to be happy and live the
way I do."

"I can say that I don’t want to do films for too long. I want to just disappear, get married, have children,
and then travel like hippies with them. I will get signs when my time is up. I really like acting and if our
industry was a place where women weren’t so easily replaceable, I would like to continue. But I would
ideally like to disappear. It has long been my dream to wear a white ganji, blue denims and drive a
Range Rover to drop my children to school, football practice and dance classes (smiles)."

"I don't do anything that's not me and sometimes being that straightforwardis mistaken for being

"Home and parents play a very important role in your life."

"I love romcoms. Ever since I became an actress, which was not very long ago, I wanted to do a romantic
comedy but I don't see such films being made in our country like something I can fall in love with."

"It is a huge misconception that chemistry comes from actors. Chemistry comes from characters and
from the script... If you are a decent actor and honest to your job and have a decent understanding of
your character then you just do your thing honestly."

"My father was in the army until recently. He has been a part of every war since 1982, including the
Bluestar operation and Kargil. I am extremely close to him and can talk to him what I can talk to no
one else. If I am sad and he just comes and sits next to me, it has a calming effect on me."

"The army has a huge role to play for shaping me as a person and contributing to my life reaching
here. When I meet someone from the army background, there is an instant connection. We live in the
best five-star hotels of the world but outside my home I will be equally comfortable in any army
cantonment or army guest house. Telling my friends that my father was in the army was like telling
them that he is the second richest man in the world."

"In the film industry, we lack respect for each other even though we try and forge it."

"I don't understand love quite honestly. I think compassion is important but love fizzles out eventually.
But if there is compassion in a relationship, things can always be worked out."

"Sometimes I get extremely disturbed with the things that are written. But you can't do anything about
it. As a celebrity you are putting yourself out there to be judged and that's fine. I am now learning not
to get affected by such things. I am building my career and making choices that I think are right while
minding my own business."

"I have a straightforward sense of fashion. I wear things that are comfortable. I wear clothes that are
an extension of my personality. I don’t understand fashion per se in terms of designers and seasons
or what’s in, what’s out. But I know what looks good and complements me. That’s enough for me.
There’s a difference between fashion and style and though I’m not a fashionista, I am stylish."

"I’m not into designers that much. One thing’s for sure, I’m happy I’m an actor. I get to wear designer
clothes, feel like I’m going to a prom and then return it. I don’t have to buy them because they’re
soooo expensive. Maybe it’s my middle class background and the fact I’ve seen my mom think before
she buys an expensive saree for an occasion. Splurging makes me feel slightly guilty. I’ve realised I
actually enjoy wearing hi-street fashion clothes more because they’re me. I’m 24, I don’t need to wear
designer clothes."
