the moment she falls in love, everything gets changed and she becomes
Q. How was it working with Mimoh?A.
It was nice working with him as he has no ego problem and he never
showed that he is the son of such a big star. He is very down to earth.
He is very supportive and as he has lots of ideas regarding films, he
e with the camera angle and other things.

I went to Anupam Kher
's acting school in 2005, for three and a half

see Mimoh and being the lead actress with him, I too will get noticed
and hope that the audience likes the film and our effort.
Q. Are you happy with your launch?
Yes I am happy with the way I am being launched. My father being in

I have done a few ramp shows, but I am not comfortable with that.

Mithun da is tall, dark and handsome while Mimoh is very Hollywood
kind of a guy. He is fair, huge and has got a nice flow of his hair. He
is very international and Mithun da is still a legend.
Q. Any interesting incident that you remember happening on the sets of Jimmy?
One day when I did not have my shoot scheduled, Daddu da called me
on the set. When I reached there I saw Usman bhai the fight master who
was acting like a drunkard. I did not know him so I went to Yogita
aunty and sat with her and then Usman started to puke water. I told
Mimoh about that and asked why Daddu sir is not doing anything. He
asked me to forget it. Then suddenly he came up with a stick and
started behaving like a mad person and no one was moving. I was shocked
to see these kind of people in Mumbai. I got terrified and ran to Daddu
Sir and told him that I am going back. This is when I came to know that
I was being made a bakra. Everyone started laughing as Daddu sir
disclosed who Usman bhai was, thinking I would start crying any moment.
Q. Any other projects you are working on…
Not at the moment. Talks are going on with couple of producers but
it's still too early to disclose anything about those projects.
