# ‘I’m just an actress. When I’m on the sets, I’m not Lakshmi Rai. I’m the character. So, I really don’t find anything strange about playing those roles or acting in kissing scenes.’
# ‘In the beginning no doubt glamour helps one to get noted. After establishing myself, I would venture to do roles that will allow me to perform. In the actor-driven industry, I consider glamour an integral part of the industry. But it should not be a mere skin show.’
