What are you doing in the film?
I play a very sweet and simple girl named Paro who comes from Patna. She is mastikhore. She comes to Mumbai and falls in love with the guy who is from Mumbai who is poles apart from her. Itís a sweet love story throughout the drama, action and very well woven.
Have you seen the original?
I have seen the Telugu one with Anuskha. She has done a brilliant job. It is a Prabhu sir film and he has turned around it in his way. I am sure you will enjoy.
It took 2 years after Dabbang for your 2nd release. Was it your conscious decision?
No... No... In fact getting into the films was not conscious. I was studying Fashion Designing but became an actress. It is just coincidence happened. I don't have any regret to be seen on big screen for 1 and half year. I was busy shooting all these movies I have signed, endorsements, shows. So I have being working non-stop.
When you were younger once you said that you will never do movies? What makes you to do it?
I thought but I guess its destiny. I was almost on the verge of becoming a fashion designer but a film like Dabangg is offered to you than you can't say no.
Was it Salman?
Yes, when I was studying FD Salman used to say me "Leave all this and become an actress" but he used to always encourage me to join the industry.
You chose quite essential next door girl character?
See, I don't choose role which comes to me as a quite essential girl. I choose the film...
a. I believe the character
b. Audience would like to see me in that character
c. Overall big picture I want to be part off
It's a very 2nd year of mine in the industry and I am happy playing the role.
Don't you feel typecast just as an Indian girl?
So what, I am an Indian girl. When other girls wear western outfit nobody ask them that they are typecast as a western girl. I like these characters and these characters are very much different from each other in fact.
How open you are with bikni?
I am not open to biknis but I am open to western outfit... If the script is good and entire packaging is good, if I like the role and character and if I felt that I can carry the character. I am a normal jeans T-shirt Mumbai girl.
Even if script demanded bikni?
It's a complete NO because I am not that kind of person. I am brought up in a certain ways and have some restrictions to follow and I donít see any reason to change. The audience has accepted me fully clothed.
What about script like dirty picture?
It is a great film to watch. Vidya balan was fantastic. I respect her so much as an actor but I don't think I can pull it off with the restriction I have.
In this 1 and a half year how much you have polished yourself?
Just I have spent maximum time on sets and learnt lots of thing on set. I am blessed that I am working with people like Salman, Arbaaz, Akshay and Prabhu sir. It's being a good journey so far.
You are doing hero oriented film...
Well it's my 2nd film so I will be getting opportunity in future. When I read the script I feel it's good to be part of it so I sign.
What suggestion or advice Shatru sir gave you?
He said, "if you can't be the best than be different".
Are you getting new butterflies before the release?
No...no it is the same butterflies I used to get before Dabbang.
