The actor said that whatever he is today is due to the unconventional choices he has made over the years. “I was not given anything on the platter. There is a dialogue in my upcoming film, ‘If life gave me an ounce, I gave it back a pound’ and so on, I made a lot out of my off-beat films! I became a mainstream star only from parallel or off-beat films, ”she said.
“I have fully taken advantage of my opportunities, fully multiplying the results of my opportunities in other proportions. I have never done a traditional film like Rajkumar Hirani or Sanjay Leela Bhansali or even Dharma Productions, YRF or one of Khan’s films. I have never done anything like this, but still, I am the top leading actress who has made a name for herself. This in itself is a case study. Although I failed to see the opportunity in The Dirty Picture, I have no regrets.
