"I have met Jackky four times and I have known Uday for three years. He knows everyone in the industry. To say that we are dating is dirty. I felt so bad".
“I haven’t thought about that (dating), but yeah, I’ll date anyone that I get along with".
"I have no limitations and that is because I believe in myself. When you finish reading a script and you still remember about that one kissing scene and think that the script is good... But just because it has a kissing scene, hence you will not do it. This means that with what intention the writer must have wrote that scene, you have not understood it".
"Acting is more interesting. Modelling gives us an option to look more beautiful at times"."I have just started working. At least ten more years, I am not getting married".
