Sanaa Khan is happy about having met Salman Khan. But she wants to know if he will help her.
"Having spent 100 days in the Bigg Boss house, I was emotionally disturbed, but I must confess the stint has taught me a lot. We had to do a lot of house work, be friendly and yet look beautiful. But I did not enter the BB house to learn domestic chores.
I know how to sweep and swap. Truly speaking I loved to be in BB for I needed a platform to show my personality to Bollywood and hope that this will help me bag a ticket to Bollywood. I am happy to have met Salman. It will be too early to disclose if I will get any help from him in this regard.
However, everyone is aware of Salman's generosity. I did meet Salamn but nothing has been finalised yet. I can't talk about work unless I sign the dotted line. Yes I have been getting a lot of offers but I will take time to see what I should choose," she says.
She adds, "I am keeping my fingers crossed in the hope that Salman helps me bag a good role in any good Hindi film. I do not believe in posing double standards and so I unhesitatingly disclose the fact that BB has helped me take baby steps onto the Bollywood. People from the industry have recognized me and contacted me."
She says she has learnt a lot of patience and how to judge people better.
She says she is happy to have got the Bigg Boss platform. "Any platform helps. I am getting a lot of offers but it's the testing time now. I have to know what I should choose and what I shouldn't."
She says she harbours no resentment. "I do not regret anything I have done in the house. I regret doing the good things with wrong people.
The whole world has seen that many people have spoken about me and have not taken sides when I was good to them."
Being impatient during her teens she adds, "I don't remember anything in particular. In your teens you are impatient you want things to happen immediately you wonder why things are not happening immediately. But today I have realized that things happen at the right time."
Coming back to discussing her early days she quips, "I started from Mumbai. I did a lot of ads here and because of Amul I got South Films and now because of Bigg Boss as better platform. I am getting work here. I am from Andheri. I finished schooling in Cannosa Convent."
Not being a trained actor she says, "I have not done any acting course. I have worked with best of the brands, best of the actors and I learnt working through my ads. I have been working for the last six years. I am feeling good now."
"Initially my family was not open to my joining the industry. When I started working they realized that I am doing good work. Now they are adjusting. Mom was the only one who supported me. They are not open to certain things but they know this is my profession."
Asked if she'd be careful of not doing steamy scenes she says, "I can't have limitations as an actor. I never say never but that is the first thing I do. I take decisions through moments. Whether I am ready for it or not. Let me figure what work demands from me."
On being a southern siren she says, "I would love to do south films as well as Bollywood films."
For her fans she says, "My female fan base has increased through Bigg Boss."
On realizing her beauty "I feel every single girl is beautiful it is how you project yourself. Through my work I realized I am looking good on screen."
Refusing to disclose anything about her love life she says, "My first love was when I was attending National College at Bandra. I am single at the moment."
Her next film is in Malayalam and is releasing. Named 'Climax' it is based on Silk Smitha's life. "It's not a dirty picture. It's a real life story. It's being directed by Anil."
