When can we expect you in the lead role? Do you regret not being offered a lead role yet?

How is modeling different from acting for films?
Unlike modeling acting is more about emotions,expressions and feelings.
What is your take on the reality shows like Rahul Dulhania Le Jaayega?
I find them (reality shows) cheap. Personally speaking,I would never be a part of these kinds of shows. I cant spend my life with a random selection of a husband on such reality shows. My husband would be someone very sensitive to me and my feelings.
How comfortable are you with the item girl tag?
Scoffs! I am an actress not an item girl. Dont ever use the item-girl tag for me. How can anyone even think of calling me an item girl?
What in you makes you feel sexy?
I think it is my confidence which makes me feel sexy.
Which is the best compliment you have got so far,both personally and professionally?
After the Big Boss (TV reality show),I had women and children walking up to me and telling me,We really felt for you,the way you were subject to the manipulation in the show.
And professionally,what I can recall right now,is,the time when Sudhir Mishra (Director and Screenwriter),walked up to me,and,complemented my by saying that,I was the best thing in the film Dil Kabaddi.
