Although the actress has an attractive appearance, in an interview with Saturday Beats, she mentioned,

Having a nice shape was not what made me popular, whether you’re {} or not you must have content. You can’t be a star by being beautiful or fair or voluptuous. Sexiness and beauty can only make people like you but it won’t keep you there for long.
My “sexiness” didn’t give me any special privilege, although it’s an added advantage. Another thing that helped me is that I carry grace. When you have the grace to make it, no one can stop you. When you look around, there are some actors and actresses that are not fine but there is something about them that makes them successful.
