Excerpts from the interview.
On Producing Movies
Despite the fact that my first venture Dhiskiyaoon did not do well at box office, I will still continue to produce movies. I have seen several up and downs in my career and I know how to handle failures, and abstain from repeating mistakes. I like experimental cinema. In the future I wish to produce films that are both sensible and entertaining.

On Being Sexy and Svelte
I wish to break the myth that ghee or any other dairy product can make you fat. I myself follow the traditional indian food habits, something that is at least 50-60 years old. Skipping meals or avoiding ghee is not a solution. I consume about two tea spoons of ghee with rice. But I also do yoga and exercises.
It is sad that the fast food culture is hampering good health in Indian society. We are all busy, and therefore when it comes to food we look for quick fixes. I request people to take time out and have healthy home cooked food,and not rely on fast food or packed food. This is the only way for a good figure that also ensures good health.
On Prioritising Life
I have donned various hats in my life, from being an actor, to a businesswoman, and a mother. I have carefully chosen my priorities and have strived to give my hindered percent to every task that I took up. I have had a successful career in acting and I have been doing pretty good in my business ventures. While I am multitasking most of the time, my priority today is my family. I don't get tired juggling family and business because I love doing both. And when one loves one's work, it isn't tiring at all.
