5 INTERESTING UNKNOWN FACTS:

She lost her father in a car accident when she was only 13 years old.

Apart from Hindi films, she has also worked in regional films; Telugu, English and Punjabi languages.

She escaped from death twice; first when there was an explosion in “Temptation concert” in Colombo (2004) where she was performing, and second when she was at the danger area when the disaster Indian Ocean Tsunami (2004) took place.

She is the co-owner of IPL team, Kings XI Punjab.

Her first television commercial was for Perk chocolates, the result of a chance meeting with a director at a friend`s birthday party in 1996.

5 FAMOUS QUOTES:

"Live your life. Don’t limit yourself by rules that others make because rules are meant to be broken.Less is more does not mean you wear less clothes. Think about the implications and don’t agree to just be an object of desire."

"I believe in good deeds, in karma, I don`t believe in going to temples. For me, religion is very personal. It`s all about having faith ... We have heard and read that all religions are equal. Now I am increasingly believing in this."

"Why wouldn’t I want to settle down? What’s wrong with me yaar? I’ve always maintained that I want to get married and have kids. But I want to make the right decision."

"To act, you must know pain. You must know what it means to be in love, what it means to be rejected."

"It is superficial to fall in love with someone looking at their face. To me I need to discover the person.

I would never look at someone and exclaim - He is the one!"

5 MOST POPULAR DIALOGUES:

Main zindagi mein sab kuch baant sakti hoon par tumhe nahi ... tum sirf mere ho, sirf mere

Aane waale kal ke liye umeedein karne se vadiya hai ... aasi aaj nu behtar banaye

Tumhe kis baat pe zyada gussa aata hai ... apni nakaamyabi se ... ya meri kaamyabi par?

Maa banna duniya ka sabse bada saubhagya hai ... ishwar ka sabse bada vardaan

Tum meri zindagi mein ajnabee banke aaye the ... lekin ab tum iske maalik ho
