"I want to bring harassment against women to an end. Women are born to live a greater life. I don't want to see anyone being a victim to their family, society or anyone. They need to live a life fearlessly," she added. She wants to encourage women to fight for their rights. If she joins politics, she says she will make the environment "so women-friendly that people will think before harassing a woman". She is currently seen in the show "Shakti - Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki".
