She was quoted as saying, "I anyway don’t like being crowded by people at all times. I want minimum people to stay around me. So many times it has happened that I have done my own make-up. I am my own stylist at least 99 per cent of the time."

She said, “I always tell my team, if I become a producer and if there is wastage, I will feel very bad. So all of us have to conduct ourselves thinking the film is ours too. Aisa nahi hona chahiye ki khana waste ho raha hai, ya kuch use nahi ho raha. Nothing should be there for show-off and if there is something I can do, I do that.”
