  • The first thing is that I have passion for my profession. I am an actress and at the same time I’m in the academics.
  • You need to impact when you get to a particular stage in your profession, or what kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?
  • You don’t have to abandon your own passion with the aim that you can shine in that of others. It’s my job that demands that I am a celebrity; it doesn’t make me change from being who I am. I am interested in my job, as well doing it very well. That is why it is widely accepted. So, anybody can be great in his chosen profession if he loves and takes it seriously. The popular belief that whoever is seen on the screen is in money is not correct. People should not forget that it is a world of make-believe; it is an illusion.
  • We need to be educated. When you are a professional and properly trained in acting, you will realise that you know the value, ethics, and the demands of the profession. You will know you are supposed to develop techniques often.
  • Acting is beyond showbiz. One has to be versatile and be ready to take any role.
  • In every area of your life, you need to study; there is no end to education. You don’t just go into movies just because you have the talent alone but you know, education is not limited to the four walls of the university. When you observe people, you can even give yourself personal training.
