After Matrubhoomi,you had no big success in Bollywood. What in your opinion is the reason behind it?
I think,I have achieved a lot in my life. The film,Dhokha,where I played the character of Sarah,has given me my best role so far. This character (Sarah) is very dear to me both in terms of look and performance.

If an opportunity comes across,I would love to do a costume drama.
How satisfactory is it for you to do ad films? How is it different working for ads in comparison to movies?
Doing ad films is great fun. Unlike movies,Ad films are about looking great.
How has modeling helped you in your acting career?
It (modeling) has taught me lot of camera angles which is very helpful when you act for films.
One big lesson you have learnt during your stint in Bollywood?
Every film has been a meaningful learning experience.
Do you mind sharing one big disappointment from Bollywood so far?
Not actually a disappointment,but I wish we had some other name for our film industry instead of Bollywood. It (the name Bollywood) sounds like a copy of Hollywood,which doesnt seem to be a very good idea.

As of now,I dont have any plans (for marriage).
What is your philosophy for life?
Never say never in life! Tulip signs off
