Tough journey
"I've worked hard to get where I am. I didn’t have a launchpad like star kids do. I’ve learnt everything on the job. I don’t have any complaints. Life has been good so far."

Flooring buffs in Pakistan
"Recently I was invited to have dinner with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf. I’m looking forward to going to Pakistan. President Musharraf said I'm very popular there. I felt proud to represent the film industry at such an important occasion."

Gossip be damned
"I don't let gossip about my alleged affairs with Abhishek (Bachchan) or Govinda bother me anymore. People have even married me off to Karan Johar! The rumours about Govinda did make me furious. I felt sorry for Sunitaji, his wife. As far as Abhishek goes, I’m not dating him. I have no time for dates."

Hits matter
"I’m happy Black is a hit. It marks my hat-trick after Hum Tum and Veer-Zaara."

Catfights? What catfights?
"There is a healthy rivalry between me and other actresses but no one’s ever been bitchy. Kareena Kapoor is a cool girl. As for Preity Zinta, we share an on-screen rapport but we were never friends."

Marriage can wait
"I want to marry the man I love. For that, I have to fall in love first! I want my family to approve of my man. I don't see myself working after marriage. I'll stay at home, looking after my husband. But I'm not marrying in the next five years."
