Excerpts from the interview:
Q. All of a sudden there is a lot happening in your career. How do you feel about this sudden surge of activity?
A. Well, to me it's beyond a surge. It's complete insanity, everything that is happening. I am so unbelievably happy about everything that is going on. Happy to be working and happy people are showing so much support.
Q. Interestingly Bobby Khan's film casts you as an exotic princess and would not be focused on your physicality. Does this shift in Bollywood's attitude towards you, please you?
A. I don't know about shift. This is just a different type of movie from what I have been cast for in the past. I believe that every movie should be different and I'm extremely excited about how this movie unfolds.
Q. What do you play in the Pritish Nandy production?
A. I am not allowed to discuss the details of this movie yet. All I can tell you is that it will be someone that people have never seen from me.
Q. Have you been able to improve your Hindi? When would you be able to dub your own lines?
A. Yes, I can dub but it comes down to the producer and how they feel about it. We shall see.
Q. When we last spoke, you were keen on avoiding item songs. What made you accept "Pink Lips"?
A. I never avoid anything. It's about the right opportunity coming your way. I have a great relationship with T-Series and when they asked me, I said 'yes' based on my relationship with them and also the song was a killer.
