Yukta MookheyYukta Mookhey to fulfill her dream of 'calling the shots'

Her 'not so successful' stint as an actress hasn't dampened the spirit of former Miss World Yukta Mookhey , who will be leaving for New York to fulfill her long cherished dream of 'calling the shots'.

"I want to make cinema that is youth and women oriented, along with animation movies for children," the actress who would soon begin a film making course at the New York Film Academy said.




Yukta firmly believes actresses should involve themselves in film making to get good roles. "Waiting for good roles sitting at home won't fetch you meaningful roles."

However, Yukta has not confined herself to movies alone and busies herself with social work. "Films are not everything. They alone can't define my personality. I like doing social work and have traveled world over doing it," says the model-turned-actress who won the Miss World title in 1999.

Taking full pride in this work, she says, "I am one of rare celebrities known for her intelligence and respected for her social work. After all, people should listen to you as well."

Apart from working for people affected by AIDS, breast cancer and thalassemia, Yukta has also donated her organs. "This step will benefit some needed one, once I leave this world", she says in a satisfactory tone.

"I have been practicing Yoga since the last five years. I have left hitting the gym ever since. It helps me maintain my youth and adds spiritual dimension to my life as well," quips the fitness freak who was in the capital recently for a promotional event of Yoga guru Ramdev.
