Tell us about your character
I play Gauri, married to Himanshu.
Our marriage falls apart owing to his craze for money. He is playing a Gujju in
the film. Our friends are trying to get us back together again. So we go for a
sort of honeymoon to a friend's bungalow on a hill station. We find a bag of
money with a dead body. I want my husband and am not interested in the money at
all. But being a typical Gujju, he craves for it and would do anything for it.
That's the main reason why our marriage falls apart. He ends up making more and
more money at the cost of spending time with her.
Is there an extra-marital angle to it?
bored rich housewife sort! No, no. It's a very clean story about a married
couple and what happens in their life over a period of 48 hours.
What are you doing in 'Rain'?
I am playing a
blind woman in the film. It's a psycho-thriller. Himanshu and I are again paired
together in the film. The audience is going to hate Himanshu in it and
sympathize with me.
How does it feel to be associated with sex and skin
Frankly speaking the phase of those kinds of films is
over. 'Classic-The Dance Of Love' had
nothing to do with sex. There were a few hot numbers and romantic scenes but the
producers felt that using those scenes was the best way to promote and sell the
film. So far, I have completed six films in which you will see me in different
characters. People are bound to get bored watching me doing the same kind of
stuff in all my films. It is time for performance-oriented films now.

Were you worried about acquiring a sexy image with
Yes, I knew I was taking a risk with that film. I knew it
would give me a 'sexy image'. But I also know that I can prove myself as a good
actress despite being sexy. Now I am trying to do better films.
For long can I be sexy?
People also feel
that your packaging is all wrong. You have a nice face but are overweight!
did 'Hawas' and 'Classic' when I was overweight. That was the time when I had
not planned on doing films. I got these offers and just took them up. But it's
ok. People learn from their mistakes. I've learnt a lot. I have lost weight
since then. Now I am much fitter. I'd never thought of acting earlier but am
loving it now. If not films, television is always there for an

But don't you think that with so much competition
around you are not given a second chance today?
What really works in
this industry is 90% luck and 10% hard work. I might do the best films and still
have flops if I'm unlucky. I've left everything to destiny and God. There are so
many good looking and hardworking girls and guys in the industry who are working
with the best directors and have the best of roles. But they still haven't
delivered hits. It's just a matter of time.
What do you think went wrong with 'Hawas' considering
it was pitted against 'Murder' that went on to become a
'Murder' had the right packaging, it was MAhesh Bhatt's film.
The songs were great, and it was promoted in a big way. 'Hawas' was not marketed
properly at all. It felt bad especially because it was my debut

How do you look at Mallika Sherawat and Bipasha Basu
who are considered as sex symbols?
I think they are good at whatever
they are doing. I realy admire Bipasha for getting out of her sex symbol
image and doing more substantial kind of films. Mallika has really gone places.
There is no sense of competition with them. I have never met them but really
wish them best of luck.
What's happening in your personal
I'm completely hooked and booked. I'm seeing Rajesh Shetty
since the past two years. We are planning to get married in a couple of years. I
don't plan to do films forever, maybe another couple of years.
