5 FAMOUS QUOTES:
We have some wonderful female directors. I really admire Farah Khan, Zoya Akhtar and Gauri Shinde. It would be wonderful to work with them.
Though I have been saying that I am not working much but I just realized since last two years I have been working continuously.
I think making jokes about somebody`s skin tone is absolutely wrong. However, I am glad that everybody is becoming conscious of these things. So am I. I have done a couple of fairness ads at the beginning of my career. Having said that, today if I am offered, I won`t do any fairness ad again.
I was young and needed money, so I didn`t really think about it (doing fairness cream ads).
I think it is time we all need to ponder over endorsing products that stereotype women.
