She was brought up in a strict manner by her parents and is known in the film industry for her decency, modesty and ladylike behavior. She has been careful to act only in roles that are respectable. In spite of her good looks, she never did a role which required her to reveal her body. In a TV interview, she was asked the question why did she never try to play the heroine in films. To this, her answer was that these days, all such roles require the heroine to expose her body, dance in sexy manner and act in a manner which she felt unable to do. She said that she would never want to do a role which would bow the head of her father, the noted thespian of yesteryears, Pradeep Kumar.
