Personal Quotes 

On working with director Mahesh Bhatt: "I am so comfortable with Mahesh. I can hug him, kiss him on his cheeks and listen to him speak for endless hours. He decides whom I should meet, where to meet them. I trust him totally." (Movie Mag International June 2004)
"I will not do any kissing scenes and no exposure at all, nothing like Murder (2004). I come from Pakistan, I am a Muslim girl, I will not do anything indecent or vulgar. I don't want anyone to even approach me or talk to me if they want me to do any kissing scenes or exposure which is vulgar." (Movie Mag International June 2004)
"I am shooting every day, fans approach me for autographs, it becomes difficult for me to go unrecognized anywhere. My car windows are curtained. I have never gone to restaurants for dinner, because people stare at me, pass remarks, come to my table for autographs, so I prefer to spend time with my family and friends at home. I never go out to public places in Pakistan." (Movie Mag International June 2004)
