“I was an introverted, complex girl with no confidence at all”
How would you describe your state of mind at the age of 22?
I was basking in the euphoria of motherhood and the success of my debut film, Main e Pyar Kiya. A huge crowd of people could be seen perpetually at the gate of the building where I lived. And the postman would deliver a huge sack of letters for me everyday—he would ask for a bonus every week because of the load he had to carry. Strangely, however, I was oblivious to this craze because I was already married and a mother. I was caught up in my own small world and was busy playing with my new-born son.
What was the state of your acting career?
I had packed it up and thrown it away. The whole world thought I was crazy to give it all up for love... but I did.
