She added, “I’ve always been that actor. Way before I’ve done films like–they didn’t do well so we don’t remember them–Finding Fanny, Chhapaak, Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey, there are a lot of these movies. So, as an actor, I’m most excited about telling stories, whether it happens to be a Rs 500 crore budget film or a Rs 50 crore; I’ve never looked at that. I am interested in telling a story.”
