On being comfortable with her body
“Like my career, my body too is a work in progress. But I won’t be a hypocrite and say an actor’s look is “natural”. It’s not. Hair and make-up takes hours, I’ve been doing it since I was 14 and I enjoy it. I endorse it too because dressing up is a part of being an actor. I think Sonam Kapoor is amazing for bringing this change in Bollywood by encouraging people to enjoy looking great instead of looking down upon it.”
On working in Toilet: Ek Prem Katha
“It’s a soulful love story with dance, drama, a toilet as the antagonist and no preaching. Akshay sir is the country’s biggest commercial star today and is returning to a full-fledged romance after a long time. Being on set with him was like a daily master class in acting. He doesn’t intimidate his co-stars even if they’re just one-film-old.”
