I don’t play tennis to prove a point to anyone. I play for my country and myself. It’s not changing what people say or think. It’s about what I can do. If I feel I have the ability to achieve something and haven’t used my potential to that end, I’ll keep trying till I succeed.

I’d be happy to live till 80 as long as I was comfortable and in good health. Mind you, ask me again on the eve of my 80th birthday. Even so, I hope we don’t all start living to be 120. I’m not sure I’d cope with another 60 years.
I am very sure that I won’t be acting till my last breath, but I will do something graceful that suits me.

‘Chhichhore’ is one of my most finest products till date. In films like this, you expect less but you get more. It is an underdog film. I am sure people will like it.

So, all the data that we collected pre-2012, which was done by the British company SBL group, was collected through quantitive and qualitative research on the ground.
I do miss ‘Battlestar’, the cast and crew. That was a pretty well-oiled machine. It’s sort of like you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone. But I go to a lot of sci-fi conventions, and I love going and talking about the show.
My father believed in astrology. His astrologer had predicted that his daughter would become a writer someday. My father would nag me, but I didn’t write a word till he passed away. I wish he could see me now.

I may get married later or may never get married. But I want babies, so I’ll have to get married. I want fat, cute babies. Every girl has to think about it at some point.

There are a lot of downsides to being male. We age faster and die younger. But give us this: we’re lifetime baby-making machines. Women’s reproductive abilities start to wane when they’re as young as 35. Men? We’re good to go pretty much till we’re dead.
Till I did ‘Dor,’ people only offered me roles of that bubbly, vivacious girl.
Often, I think bullying – especially in its adult, verbal forms – is the sort of thing you don’t realize till the end of the day, and it’s a horrible feeling to realize something wasn’t just a bland statement but was actually cruel.

I tell people, and it’s the truth, I could sit in my garage for a week and it won’t make me a car. And you can sit in church till your bottom is flat and that won’t make you a servant of Christ.

When I got out of college, I gave myself till I was 30 to invent a product. If I couldn’t do it by then, I would just get a real job. And that fear – the fear of a real job – motivated me to be an entrepreneur.
