I don’t even know how, I don’t pay attention to it. However people want to perceive me, it’s their attitude. I just have to focus on what I am doing.”

I don’t want to subject myself to someone else’s opinion of me.”
Interestingly, the ‘Dirty Politics’ actor stated that she is not even ready for PR strategies to be in the news. She even mentioned that she has not been in touch with her PR which has gotten her into a lot of trouble. The ‘Pyaar Ke Side Effects’ actress quipped, “What do I say, I am so out of touch with PR and all! I can only speak for myself, I have been a very honest person, and sometimes I have gotten into a lot of trouble because of that. I don’t pay attention to what other actors are doing, or what their PRs are doing.’
The ‘Mayya Mayya’ girl is happy staying away from Bollywood. She juggles between US and India for work.
