Interview

Fortunate to be a part of Shakti
I made a right decision by being a part of such a great show Shakti. I feel fortunate. After Box Cricket League I had decided to take up something which would challenge me also something which my fans would have never seen me playing on small screen before. My character Preeto is full of life. Though she is always against the family, she is a protective mother who loves her son a lot.

Society always judges a divorcee
Society makes life difficult for single mothers. Even if a mother and daughter are happy in life, people still have problems with that. After doing such good roles on TV, at the end people still judge you because you are a divorcee.

No plans to get married again
I like to live life in present and I haven't thought about getting married again.

I want to play a role like Umrao Jaan on TV
Given a chance I would love to play Rekha's role in Umrao Jaan on TV. I think it will suit my personality and I can carry off that role very well.
