I use egg whites and an olive oil-based hair mask that deep-conditions the hair and adds incredible shine.

I would love to go to Ladakh - there are beautiful monasteries there and because I am from Himachal. I would love to go to Paris. I haven't been to New York, which I have heard a lot about. And, I would love to go to Kanyakumari. I think that would be interesting!

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.

The reason behind Hrithik being the best dancer is that he never takes his work for granted.

We all love to be admired and given compliments, but I don't really keep track.

'Vicky Donor' proved that the audience was waiting for well-scripted funny films.

I am following a particular diet, and it requires me to not just eat right but also at the right time. So, I carry food from home.

I love the way Tyra Banks dresses up - she looks so elegant and glamorous in whatever she wears. The confidence and attitude she exudes on and off the ramp is remarkable.

For fitness, I've just bought a watch which keeps a track of how many calories I burn, what's my heart rate, which is very fascinating.

I love crop tops and love the way Taylor Swift teams them. Her style is relaxed; I can relate to it.

I'm there on all the social networking sites, as it plays an important role.

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.

I am happy with the response I am receiving for 'Kaabil.' Audiences' love is what we work for, after all.

There have been failures in the past, and I know there will be in future as well. But I have learnt from them.

You can never predict a hit or a flop, but it's about what you are happy doing as an actor. Every actor comes with his or her own mindset.

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.

When I go out and I see the genuine appreciation from the people, that's a big thing for me.

As an actor, I don't want to do something which I have already done before.

I think you need to love giving compliments as much as you love receiving them.

I do not want to do a role which is similar to the previous one or the concept and the genre.

There is failure in every industry; there is failure in every step. It's just that we are working in an industry where everything is just out there; that is why it looks so magnified. But failure is a part of life.

I have to live up to the love I am receiving.

In all these years, I've understood one thing: that it's only your work that should do all the talking.

I love feminine soft shades for summers - I like pastels and bright hues, too. I like summer dresses and tank tops; I think they never go out of style. As much as I'm happy with Western wear for red carpet and social dos, I also like Indian ethnic wear for special occasions.

If a film is a huge hit, you do think properly before choosing your next projects.

I do hot yoga and TRX, a kind of suspension training.

I can't run my career based on someone else's ideology.

As a child, I always wanted to be an actor. But as I grew older, the acting dream kind of faded away, and I took to studying a lot. A few years later, a relative of mine who really wanted me to try my hand at acting sent my photographs to a few production houses, and like they say, the rest is history.

'Sanam Re' is an amalgamation of an emotional love story and a visual treat.

I believe in nourishment and having a balanced diet. I avoid bingeing and try and eat healthy, especially lots of amla, and drink lots and lots of water.

When I came to know that I have to do a dance sequence with him, I was nervous. After all, he is Hrithik Roshan.

No matter how long my day has been, I never forget to remove my make-up and slap on some intensive moisturiser before I go to bed.

It's not just about achieving success; the journey is equally important for me.

I have always done work to which my heart says yes.

There may be 10 odd things which I want to do as an actor, and we get an opportunity also, but I need to be sure whether the person I am trusting or the role that I am relying on - is it the correct one?

I don't look forward to anything. I take things as they come.

You have to be very strong and headstrong to make your place. You have to know how to say no. Patience is very important.

India-Pakistan war and romance have always been sensitive issues for film-makers in both the countries.

You can't tag me as a regional actress.

It is very difficult to work in another language, and it is also very challenging.

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.

Whatever I have done so far has led me to 'Kaabil.' It is a big opportunity for me to establish myself more commercially. It is a huge platform.

I generally like to wear my hair down, preferably with soft curls. But when I'm having a bad hair day, I like to wear my hair in French braids or fishtail braids.

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

There were a lot of offers before 'Vicky Donor,' but I wanted to wait for the right opportunity.

The challenge starts when you first come to Mumbai. But it's momentary if you win an award.

Hindi films are so deceptive. I thought Mumbai was this big, grand, beautiful city with sea-facing flats.

I feel nothing can push you till the time you want to get pushed.

I intend not to do an item song ever. I find the term 'item songs' bizarre. I do not want to comment on its presence and its popularity, but I would rather avoid it.
