In an interview with a leading magazine, the 43-year-old actress also talked about her initial days in the tinsel town and the choices made by her.

“I have always followed my heart. I come from an academic background and choosing movies as a career was a serious decision for me. I could have started my journey with a glamorous role but I chose ‘Iruvar’ as my first film.”

Adding, “I could have done the usual song, dance and looked glamorous but I didn’t want the film to be all about me. I was excited to work with Mani Ratnam on an unconventional debut.”

When asked about her reason for deterring from social media, the ‘Jazbaa’ actress said, “I don’t feel the need to be there. When the Twitter and Facebook trend started out, it was more about making statements and adding followers, I didn’t connect with it.”
