We all should face some failures in life and learn from them. We should accept it and move on.
I have never anticipated success. I choose work, give it my best shot, and leave it.

I do hot yoga and TRX, a kind of suspension training.
We travel a lot and don't get enough time to spend with our family, and so we have to take our pictures, videos, also bother about things like which are the HD quality phones. So I'm very much a part of these typical things.

'Vicky Donor' proved that the audience was waiting for well-scripted funny films.
We all love to be admired and given compliments, but I don't really keep track.
There has to be that zeal to do something new and surprise yourself and audiences. You have to stay true to your craft, and that should never be sidelined.
When I get to work with someone like Prabhu Dheva at the beginning on my career, why would I say no?
South India has beautiful villages.

My career is a journey for me, and any journey is incomplete without the struggle.

I think you need to love giving compliments as much as you love receiving them.
I don't look forward to anything. I take things as they come.
I am not from a film family or a Mumbai girl. The probability of getting a second chance is low, and so one has to be more careful.
It's an amazing experience to work with Hrithik. He is one of the finest actors, and there is a reason for it. He is extremely hardworking and fully dedicated.
The reason behind Hrithik being the best dancer is that he never takes his work for granted.
Even though 'Vicky Donor' was a huge success, I have had one or two films which have not done well, but that's all right.
Fashion is anything which is you and reflects your personality, and if you are comfortable with what you wearing, you'll look trendy and fashionable for sure.

Yes, I do come with certain reservations, and I'm not OK with certain things, but rather than focusing on what I don't want to do, I focus on what I do want to do, and I bring that energy, and that happens.
