I was born in New Delhi in 1976. I was the sports captain in school. I've done everything -- from javelin to discus to basketball to judo. But now I don't have time for any exercise.

I am the BJP youth wing's vice-president for Maharashtra. I am also a member of the party's state and national executive. The unfortunate part of being an actor-politician is that people feel an actor will not take her political commitments seriously.

I have never consciously tried to create an image. It happened because my producer created a project, which became a hit. The team has made it a hit. People must remember that not everything they read is true. I take my work one day at a time. Like I am shooting today with this script, which is meant for today only. I am not a conversationalist kind of person.

I don't have time for movies. It is not easy to adjust my schedule with movies. I like to give quality time to a project. If I have to run helter-skelter, I will not be able to give my best. I read all kinds of books like The Fountainhead (Ayn Rand), The Alchemist (Paulo Coelho) and Kahlil Gibran's books. I liked The Alchemist for its simplicity. It comes across with a simple message in a fluid tone. I like to read simple books with depth. My day always begins with the newspaper and continues with a book.

I do not discuss my private life. I don't want to talk about even a simple day at home. At the start of my career, I met a senior journalist who told me the media has as much access to an actor's life as the actor permits. I have heard actors crib about how little privacy they have. He said if you keep your professional and personal lives separate, you will not face problems about privacy.

As I am a public person -- as an actor and politician -- I am open to discussion. But as far as family is concerned, I don't leave the door open -- particularly where my children are concerned. I don't want them to be influenced by my job. I want them to grow up in an environment where they will be just another child of a working mother. I don't want them to take advantage of being the child of an actor. I don't want to be like mothers who feel guilty about leaving their kids home so they bring them on the sets and play with them when they have the time. I make time and go home. My son is three years old and my daughter is two.

Apart from my television serial and my political commitments, I am also producing a play. It is written by Prakash Kapadia, who wrote Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Devdas and Black. I am also acting in it. It will have its national premiere in Delhi on June 10. Before that, we will travel to Ahmedabad, Indore, Surat, Dubai and Muscat.

Smriti calling!

I divide my day according to my work schedule. I find time for Kyunki Saas, my political commitments and my responsibilities at home. I work 30 days a month. It is fascinating that you always ask a female member of the entertainment industry how much time they spend at home, but never ask the male members. Or a male politician, for that matter. Family is a priority for any person who believes that your roots give you strength to fly high. I believe in nurturing my roots well and make sure I fly as high as possible. I want to achieve more in life.

Sharing a light moment
