This Khan has no Bollywood plans

Her philosophy in life is simple. Rakshanda Khan fully believes in Oscar Wilde's famous line, I can resist everything but temptation. Not willing to give up TV or compering for Bollywood, Khan says in her usual peppy style "Never say no because you might just be doing what you've been saying no to."
Anchoring Ab Ayega Maza on Sony, which is telecast on Mondays, Khan courts the camera with both élan and ease. "My first ramp show was with the designer duo Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla and I was a show stopper. But, if you are a thinking person, you grow out of modelling, as it completely stagnates the senses. I wanted more out of life than just being a pretty girl," says Khan.
She's had offers from films but they have failed to enthuse her. Despite that Khan is a die-hard film buff. "I recently watched Demi Moore in Charlie's Angels, and was inspired by her to grow my hair longer. She looks absolutely fabulous at her age, that too after three kids. I hate action movies and all the blood and gore. However, parallel cinema offers infinite possibilities and it's something that I may explore in the near future," says Khan.
Never wanting to return to the catwalk, Khan, who hates exercising, believes it's tough to maintain an hourglass figure. "I love food, in fact I live to eat and chocolates are a must (specially Toblerones). So how can I think of competing with those 20-somethings who starve to look great," says Khan with a smile
Not much of a fashion-conscious person, Khan is not its victim. In fact, comfort is what she looks for in everything. "I'm not saying I want roomy kurtas to hide myself in but something that is aesthetically done is what I look for. And the Lakme India Fashion Week is a great time to plan your wardrobe, because it gives you 52 designers with their personal styles. So choose what goes best with your look," says Khan.
Living life on sheer impulse, Khan is not much of a cautious planner. She, in fact, dislikes people who chalk out future plans. "At the age of 60, I might be doing a Driving Miss Daisy, life is a journey for me and certainly not a destination," concludes Khan.
