I can never forget those days. It all happened when I was shooting for Superhit Muqabla for Doordarshan’s Metro channel. I got a call from ABCL (Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Limited) and when I got there, Jaya Ji (Jaya Bachchan) was there and asked if I would be interested in a role in their forthcoming film.  It was like a dream…I came to know that quite a few ladies were screen-tested! There I was sharing the screen with three other relative newcomers Chandrachur Singh, Arshad Warsi and Priya Gill

  I did get some offers after ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ but none of them excited me. It was then that ‘Once More’ came to me. I was lucky to share screen time with greats like Shivaji Ganesan. The movie did well and I was considered a lucky actress. I stayed back longer when I was offered Malayalam film ‘Indraprastham’ with superstar Mammootty. Again it proved to be a hit and I realized that regional cinema was my playing field.

The first Tamil film I watched was Kamal Hassan's Avvai Shanmughi (made into Hindi as Chachi 420). I did not employ a tutor. Instead I saw to it that my assistants spoke to me in Tamil. I learnt four to five words a day. Now I can speak the language fluently. I must tell you that even in my initial days, I did not get my dialogues written out in Hindi. I just took the help of a prompter. I am quite comfortable with Tamil now, though the other three south Indian languages still do not flow naturally, though I can understand them.


I gave birth to a baby boy, on 13th June 2005.

I have learnt from each director and each unit that I have worked with. K. Balachander always reminded me of a school principal. I guess I learned at least 10 new expressions on every day of shooting that we did. Mani Rathnam is so organized. Read the script and you won’t need any further explanations. I sometimes am surprised by the zest that these filmmakers show. Despite it being his 100th movie, you should see the enthusiasm and the drive that Balachander Sir has.
