7: Film is a world of glamour and beauty do you think that exposure is helpful for an Actress ?
Glamour is for one who can sustain it for long and do not jump into conclusion with one’s success or one’s failure about themselves and I am a girl believe in long run horses than running and jumping too fast. Exposure is important when the script demands it, you cannot wear a bikini in a temple scene and in the same way a sari in a swim scene. You have to choose between the lines and have to generate sense of understanding where you are going and in what direction.

I have no problem doing a glamours or modern role, I can even love to be the next Sharon Stone Of Hollywood Blockbuster “The Basic Instinct”.

Roles which brings too much challenges & learning and something unusual than regular.
9 : What qualities of South Indian movies you like best ?
South Indian movies are live in life. But some of the Tamil directors are going to off beat cinema like Hollywood style, detailing every small thing from a foot print to showcasing the wounds on the face. I like the new talent coming in the industry especially in the direction field. I can only pray if I get to work with good experienced directors like Mani Ratnam or new talents with scientific style.
10 : What are your future plans as an Actress ?
I as an actress plan on grabbing as much as good work I can do, where I can live my role and do something to make my director and producer and his whole team proud working with me with my work and do advertisements to the products I like relate with easily.
11 : What is the difference between Hindi movies and South Indian movies ?
Hindi movies where focus on both International and national audiences and keep an eye on reality based or commercial based story in the movie and highlight the glam and reality together to reach to Cannes Film Festival or Oscar, same time Southern Film Industry focuses on the regional audiences rather focusing on dance drama, the southern directors want first the public and mass audiences to like the movies of the director than the outsider but on same time both industries are inter related and when the South and Hindi Industry join together they create a super duper hit fusion of success like Rowdy Rathor, Wanted, Gajni, Bombay, so many to name it.
