This sex bomb wants to be taken seriously and doesn't want to be associated with the item girl tag anymore! She talks on this and her alleged affairs with actors Kunal Khemu and Randeep Hooda.

Was there any truth behind two strong affairs - Earlier with Kunal Khemu and recently with Randeep Hooda?
Not an iota of truth is there in both of them. In fact, I was Kunal's co-star in Kalyug  so it all started from there. It was all rubbish that is why it couldn't survive. As far as Randeep Hooda is concerned, it was my statement on him, which was misunderstood. He is very senior to me. And I have all respect for him.

So, you are yet to get into any relationship?
To be very honest, when I did my first album Kabhi Aar Kabhi Paar, I was seeing someone that time. But it could not materialize somehow and I broke off. I can't reveal the person's name but the break-up made me internally strong.

Do you think Kalyug  has changed your image from a glamorous bimbette to a talented actress?
When I had entered in the industry with my item song, everyone recognized me as an item girl. That was the first step. I never wanted to stay only at that stage. I wanted to go up and so I took up Kalyug. The kind of appreciation and recognition the film has earned for me, I think I have crossed the second stage now. I will have to look up further. My dream is to establish myself as a talented and celebrated actress.

Does it mean that you will never go back to item sequences now?
Never! For me, item song was just a stepping-stone. I will not think of going back to that stage again. Now, I have moved up. And with an international assignment like Karma Confession andHoli  in hand, I think I am on the right way.
