Why did you choose to make your debut with an absolute newcomer like Rannvijay Singha?
When I heard the story of 'Direct Dil Se', I didn't even know who the opposite lead was. And so many people make debuts with newcomers! Besides, my director (Viveck Vaswani) has full faith in Rannvijay, so if the director is fine with it then I'm fine with it.


How did you prepare for your role?
It's a young, college romance, so I didn't really have to prepare for it. The character is just like me - her nature and her behaviour.


Fame, money, glamour - what's the lure of acting for you?
Firstly, that I finally know what I'm doing in life (laughs), because I've always been confused. If I didn't get into acting, I would have become an air-hostess. Overall, I just love this industry and I want to be a part of it.


Is your ambition eventually to be a 'superstar'?
Of course that's something I'm looking forward to! I'd first like to be known as a good actor, but it's a total high to be known as a superstar.


How do you plan to deal with the Bollywood sleazeballs?
This question has been asked to me a lot of times - and honestly, I have no idea! Maybe because my parents are from the industry, I might not get such approaches.


Would you do an item number for instant fame?
No!


How have both your parents (Aditya Panscholi and Zarina Wahab) contributed to you as an actor?
My dad hardly talks to me about all of this. My mom has given me a few tips here and there but nothing really intense.


If the movie bombs, do you have a back-up plan?
(Pauses) I haven't thought of that as yet.
