However, she has a lot of films lined up for release, Roohi Afzana, Takht, Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, Dostana 2, to name a few. The actress recently featured on a chat show where she was questioned about how the stardom of her mother, late Sridevi, helped her in Bollywood and if she thinks it has any role to play in her career at all.
To which the young gun replied saying, “I think of it as a responsibility. My family, my mom, in particular, got so much love and appreciation from the audience. As a consequence, I have also got some of that love. I now have to work doubly hard to prove that I deserve it, on my own, also.”
She also spoke about how it is impossible for anyone to match her mother, late Sridevi’s stardom, she said, “I don’t think it is possible, for anyone, let alone me. I am a different person from her. Our intention with our work is the same. The kind of hard work she put in, has been inculcated in me too, by DNA, and conditioning. I am not vying for stardom, I am here to do good work.”
