1. How do you feel being in Goa?
I love Goa so much. I have my family deities Shantadurga and Manguesh here. So it's really nice to be here. I feel very much at home.
2. How frequently do you come to Goa?
At least once a year, I try to come to Goa. I like Goa's food - fish curry and rice. It's the same what we eat at home, lots of fish and rice.
3. What is your comment on the short film festival which you inaugurated just now?
I could not come here for International film festival of India (IFFI). So thought of taking this opportunity to come down here and attend the festival.
4. Do you admire such films?
I love animated films. I love them a lot.
5. There is always a question mark whether Goa has a film culture. What is your comment on it?
There is always a beginning. We did not learn anything the day we were born. As we grew we learnt. So also Goa will have lots of films in the time to come. I am myself Konkani girl so definitely I will like to support Goan film industry.
