Further, she adds that her aim is to work on interesting projects and not look out for the next Badhaai Ho. “I am not going to get another Badhaai Ho. Aisi film zindagi mein ek baar hoti hai. Just like Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron (1983) happened only once,” she adds. After the super success of Badhaai Ho, the expectations of people in the industry have changed. “Whatever work I am getting today is because of Badhaai Ho and I feel happy that today, my name adds value to any project. My status is better than before,” she added.

Earlier in an interaction, the National Award-winning actress had said that she was stereotyped and offered only negative roles in the early days of her career due to the public image she had. "I suffered as an actress because of my public image. So, I think it is important to maintain a certain image in the public eye to get roles in cinema," the actress said in an interactive session with actor Rajit Kapur during the Act Fest in Mumbai. "The society has not changed even today and that is why I want to tell all the aspiring actresses especially - do not be very candid at your professional space. I really suffered," she had added.
