"I believe in my roles and I am not scared of trying different roles. I an not scared of being typecast (either). When I played a mother's role in 'Gippi' people really appreciated my work," the 35-year-said.
The actress says her Bollywood journey, which began n 1994 with "Ishq Mein Jeena Ishq Mein Marna", without any backing, has not been a cakewalk.
"I didn't have any backing and there was nobody to guide me. The journey was not easy, but I am happy that I have reached so far," said the acclaimed actress.
She has also done lead roles in films like 'Train to Pakistan' and 'Shaheed-E-Mohabbat'.
She will also feature in forthcoming films like 'Lootera' and 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag'.
