Interview

Is Hollywood an avenue that you would like to pursue?
No. Los Angeles (USA) is not for me. The way Priyanka has put India out there, and done so well for herself, is amazing. I feel proud of her. But my priorities are different. I don't see Hollywood as an avenue. I want to be an actor, a wife, and lot of other things in my life.

The younger generation admires and loves you. How do you feel about that?
I think it's sweet. They are being kind. The fact is that it doesn't matter. I am happy to be working with them. I don't take criticism or compliments seriously.
