STAR STRUCK

Stardust (English) - - NEWS -

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.
