"Films are almost always hero oriented. It's a male dominated industry where actresses don't have much to do. An actress's prime job is to wait for the right opportunity and I'm patiently doing that. It's very difficult to survive in a world dominated by men," .
Life changed for me after Sushmita Sen won Miss Universe. She was an inspiration for me when I was a kid. She is the perfect definition of beauty with brains. I wanted to be like her. Generally, Bengalis are known for their inclination towards various arts. I learnt singing and dancing. I used to sing and compere local events in free time.
i was 68 when I did Target and I am 50 kgs now. I reduced weight because I have been working continuously for the past six months. I also learnt martial arts (kickboxing, taekwondo, sword fighting and karate) from Kaushal – Moses (who worked for Abbas Mastan films).
I drink boiling water (mostly Green Tea) all the time. I am very particular about my diet. I avoid eating carbohydrates during night. I eat only proteins (egg whites and soya panneer) in the night.
