When asked why she has not done a typical Bollywood film yet, she said “It’s just that when I started, I got work and I kept doing that work. Perhaps, I also didn’t go and ask people for work. A lot of times I was travelling or didn’t have dates... But it’s not like Bollywood will not happen.”

“It might happen with roles that I can do justice to as an actor and with roles that do justice to my acting.”

Having worked in films like Brick Lane, Road, Movie, Dekhi Indian Circus, Anna Karenina, Gulab Gang, Angry Indian Goddesses and more, she says she has seen exciting times in her career with different roles in movies of varied genres.
