The Murder actress, in a recent interaction with Prabhat Khabar, spoke about the changes she has seen in the characters offered to the actresses over the last twenty years. She was quoted saying, "Earlier, the heroines were either too good, sati-savitri types who were too innocent to know anything, or they were the characterless vamps. These were the only two types of roles written for heroines. The change that we see now, shows women as humans. She can be happy or sad. She can make mistakes, she can falter, and you love them despite all of that."

Comparing her portrayal of the character to Deepika’s portrayal she quipped, “The heroines are more confident about their bodies as well. Such hue and cry were created when I did Murder. People said all kinds of things about the kiss and the bikini. What Deepika Padukone did in Gehraaiyaan, I did that 15 years ago, but people were too narrow-minded back then.”
She added that there is a certain section of people in the industry and the media that tortured her. Those people never talked about her acting skills in movies like Dashavataram, Pyaar Ke Side Effects, and Welcome instead only spoke about her body and glamour.
