Actress Raima Sen, who has made her mark in the film industry with Parineeta and Chokher Bali, talks about her relation with Kunal Kapoor and to what extent she can strip for success.

Rumours are that you are dating actor Kunal Kapoor. What do you have to say?
There is not an iota of truth in this. We are just good friends who spend time together whenever we get time. We do go out for dinners sometimes but that doesn't mean that we are into a relationship.

Since Ria is more popular than you are, do you ever feel jealous about her achievements?
To be frank, there is no sibling rivalry exist between the two of us. I know that she has earned more popularity than me and she has got offers from big banners to work with. But that's not something I will feel jealous of. I have made my mark in the industry too. If I have to compete, then I will compete with other actresses and not my sister.

You are getting character roles that are much older than you actually are. Don't you itch for a character younger or of your age?
It's true that I will enjoy characters that are of my age. I also want to play couple of young roles but at the same time I don't want to change my image. Profound performances give me a lot of satisfaction.

Then what made you do a bold film like Antar Mahal?
I don't want to expose to the extent that I will look vulgar. I exposed in Antar Mahal for the first time only because I trusted Rituparno Ghosh. I will never do a bold role if I don't trust the director. I prefer to stay away from appearing in bare minimum.
