Sun Sign:Capricorn

Date of birth: January 18

Home Town: Tajpur, a village near Kolkata

School/college: La Martiniere, Kolkata

First break: Never needed a break. I just worked hard and achieved success

High point of your life: Professionally, life is a high and personally, it was becoming a mother

Low point of your life: Not being in Parliament! I could have served with sincerity as a people’s representative

If you could choose any movie as your dream debut, which one would it be?

There couldn’t have been a better debut for me than Junoon (1978) as it gave me the opportunity to work alongside all the stalwarts of the industry.

One thing not many people know about you...?

I’m basically a quiet and a peaceful person. But if I see anything wrong happening around me, I try to address it.

Who is your idol and why?

Mother Teresa. When I took my three children to meet her, it was surreal. She’s a beautiful woman.

If you could invite five people for dinner, who would you call?

Barack Obama, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa, Lady Diana and Indira Gandhi.

A stylish item you are dying to own?

A diamond-studded Rolex watch.

Movie premiere or book launch, which one are you likely to be spotted at?

I’d love to go to a movie premiere, if invited.

Describe your closet in one word...?


Money doesn’t buy class, true or false?

True, and money cannot buy health, happiness, admiration or power either.
