Q: Tell us about your latest album?

Q: What has inspired you to make this album?
A: I am a die hard romantic and sensitive person, so I always wanted to make an emotional album. When I first heard the songs I realized that the songs have a lot of depth and so I thought of directing them.
Q: What made you go for Pankaj ji?

Q: Which is tougher, acting or direction?
A: Both are different altogether. Acting is only concerned with one’s feelings, while when you are a director everything has to be taken care of. Direction is an observatory task and so the tougher between the two.
Q: So are you a tough or lenient director?
A: I don't think I am tough. But yes, I am a very aggressive person. So I like my team to be focused. At times I do get strict when I see no results.
Q: Don't you think that you have given a glamorous angle to the executive class?

Q: Isn't it difficult to manage the ends, home as well as work?
A: It is not tough if your partner is co-operative. I don't find any difficulty in managing because my husband is always there to support me.
Q: In the album 'Endless Love' you have promoted Delhi, why so?
A: I purposely shot this album in Delhi because I feel Delhi has wonderful locations. As compared to Mumbai, Delhi has not been properly used for shooting purpose. When I was in college I used to think that Delhi does not have many production houses and so people have to move to Mumbai. So for this album ,except for Apoorva Agnihotri I purposely chose models from Delhi.
