1. On discrimination within her family:
“Girls are never encouraged to do something. My father had unrealistic expectation from my brother, while I stood in the corner.”
2. On friendships in Bollywood:
“When one says ‘just good friends’, it means they are f**k buddies.”
3. On Rejecting a Fairness Ad:
“It’s very sad and I find it extremely humiliating because we’re a country of beautiful people. Women should not be subjected to this discrimination. They’re just stripped off their confidence and self-worth by such creams. I oppose it and I’m very ashamed that many celebs support it and endorse it.”
4. On why Hrithik Roshan ousted her from Aashiqui 3!
“I don’t know why exes do silly things to get your attention.” This one brought along a host of legal notices.
5. On being an outsider to the industry
“When I started out in the industry, I was treated like a dog. People treated me like I didn’t deserve to be spoken to and I was some unwanted object. I couldn’t speak English and people made fun of me for that.”
6. On the Koffee With Karan couch
“If my biopic ever gets made, you will play that typical Bollywood biggie, who is snooty and completely intolerant to outsiders, the flag bearer of nepotism.”
7. On Love
“I have dated a doctor, an actor, a model. I have dated many men, unfortunately. But the learning is the same.”
