"From the beginning, my intention of getting in as an assistant director was for the purpose of learning acting. It helped me to the extent that when I faced the camera during my debut film, I was not intimidated at all," the actress added
"Deepika Padukone is my favourite, I love everything about her. She is getting better and better with each film and that's amazing. She is a real hard worker," the actress said at a media interaction in Mumbai. She also said that she admires "All actresses". "I like Karisma Kapoor too," she added.
