can do it', and I'm filled with gratitude for all the connections and learnings "I am a firm believer in not having any regrets.
Every choice I've made and step I've taken has led me to where I am today. Each success and failure too has shaped my present, and I wouldn't change that for anything," she added.

with The Hero: Love Story of a Spy.
Projects like Don, Fashion,7 Khoon Maaf, Barfi!,Mary Kom, and Bajirao Mastani are milestones in her career graph. But it wasn't a smooth ride
for her as she even saw setbacks with films like Bluffmaster!, Salaam-E-Ishq, God Tussi Great Ho, The Legend of Drona, and What's Your

The former beauty queen said she is glad that "talent from India is being recognised more and more because we have so much to offer". "If anything, I would like to believe that I have tried to clear misconceptions when it comes to Indian films and its actors. I believe in our talent and I've just opened the world's eyes to what we have to offer. The rest is left to each individual's talent.
"I've made a special effort to educate everyone I meet, on our film industry and the amazing writers, directors, technicians and actors we have.
It's great to be able to take us out of the box we've been in for a while now.
"We've changed, evolved, grown and it's time the world sees that. I'm also excited about the connect I've been able to make with new audiences and the fact that they see me as an actor first, before anything else. That, in my mind, is a true measure of success," added Asked about her next destination, she said, "That's a dangerous question to ask someone like me because my answer is...Everything! The point is to move forward, try new things, challenge yourself and be open to the endless possibilities."
