Jennifer, who says she looks for a strong character and script in her TV shows, admires the proactive and professional attitude of people in the entertainment industry.
You have worked for so many years. What changes have you found in yourself?
I think I am more patient now and more at ease with what I do. I believe I have always kept room for improvement and experimentation, and that’s a notch higher and is a conscious and recurrent trait now. With time, there comes a better understanding of the technicalities of your craft, which alters your skill in creating a seamless blend of the two (improvement and experimenting). But yes, having said that, there will always be learning and unlearning.
What has changed in the industry over the years?
There are many changes, but most of all, the people are more proactive, prompt and professional now. I like and appreciate that.
Many people become actors for fame or money. What was your goal?
In all honesty, a bit of both. But I want appreciation more than fame and money.
There were rumours about you signing a new movie. What’s happening on that front?
It’s just talk; a lot of talk. If and when this were to happen, I will talk. You will hear it straight from me.
Your personal life gets a lot of attention, right from being romantically linked with other people to being spotted at events. How do you handle it?
I understand that this comes with the territory, but fortunately, it doesn’t affect me at all. Those near and dear to me know and understand me and never need any unnecessary explanations.
Is it tough to maintain privacy?
It is… but you get used to it with time. It’s not that tough if you know how to conduct your life well.
