In her first Hollywood venture, the actress sports a no make-up look as Maratha warrior Tulaja Naik. Roland Joffe has directed the time travel romantic adventure saga, which was earlier titled ‘Singularity’.
What about the film that you did with Roland Joffe?
It's called 'The Lovers' now. It's will be coming in a few months. I am really looking forward to it. It's one of my most challenging roles in recent times. People tell me I look my best in “The Lovers”. I am advised to do the no make-up look more often.
And you are also looking your best?
I think looking good has to do with looking after your health and being in a happy space. I am happy at peace with myself. Everything around me is peaceful and under control. You know, my greatest stress used to be my younger sister's career. By god's grace she's doing well for herself. She's a journalist. That's a load off my back. Nothing gives me more happiness than to see my family well settled.
I've seen you go through the worst of times and coming out unscathed?
It's really very simple. When the Tsunami strikes, you have no choice but to try to swim to safety across the choppy waves. One has to protect oneself from the dark forces when they hit you. You never know when they will hit you. It's life. The hard times are bound to come. Nothing prepares you for them.
