How have things changed post marriage? I am living with a man suddenly, that is a big change. I am not living alone and that is fantastic because if you get the right companion who you are in perfect sync with and with whom you don’t have to make an effort, especially if you get married at an age like mine which was very late. It is very difficult to change yourself or adapt to something new. So for us, we organically fit in, we didn’t have to make any effort. And he is the best companion for me, he’s my best friend and I couldn’t have asked for anything better.
You broke Dino Morea’s, heart... Dino (Morea) was crying at my wedding. He danced at my wedding too (laughs).
Why haven’t we seen you on screen lately? I honestly did do a lot of work. Unfortunately, the web series that I did didn’t take off. It went over budget or something - the financial scenario can be given clearer by not me, I have no idea of it. We did a lot of work though. Two of the films that I wanted to do, for whatever reason of the production houses didn’t put enough money on the project, we were going to take off but it didn’t take off.
Do you think you were typecast to the horror genre? It started with the fact that I was doing something new and I was pushing a new genre. And the roles were extremely interesting. Honestly, women don’t get such fantastic roles. Each of my films, Raaz 3 for instance, had a fantastic subject. For me, the human drama in the film was more important than the genre. You don’t choose. In comedy films, girls have no roles. I have done one. Ask me about it, and I think Humshakals was my worse decision. So I stick by my choices. The horror genre definitely needed a push and I think doing those films, I really loved doing those films as I got to play meaty parts, and did some extremely interesting films. But then you know what happens. I became the face of horror and I have to be honest about this, I get stacks of scripts on horror so I am not even looking at synopsis, production houses or anything with regards to horror because just in case I like something I might end up doing it.
Any plans of going behind the camera? I can’t make plans. I’m very bad at them. Today I tell you something, I might not keep it. I am evolving every day. I can’t plan long term but am definitely interested in the business as to what my role would be in the future.
Any future projects that you’re working on? Yes in the middle of finalising something very soon. It’s on the lines of revenge and romance.
