"I am not new to criticism. It started with the girls at the pageant, then this preconception that a pretty face cannot emote and when I slowly dispelled all these notions, there was Cannes. Nothing prepared me ever for that kind of backlash. I went to Cannes for the first time as part of the Devdas team. And I was criticised for my choice of clothing at the festival and this continued for years on end. Initially it hurt me. Today I would be lying if I say it does not affect me at all. I am very sensitive like all creative actors are and so it hurts that someone out there is waiting for you to fall."
"Bapuji said leave the village, everybody said leave Paro, Paro said leave alcohol. Today, you said leave home. One day he’ll say, leave the world."
