Religion/Religious ViewsIn 2010, she converted to Buddhism.  In an interview, while talking about it, she said,
"The best way to effectively de-stress is to chant ‘Nam Myo Ho Renge Kyo’. I chant every morning. This practice strengthens compassion in my mind. For me, Buddhism aims to awaken people to the limitless potential and value of their own lives. Through chants, one can connect with God and can experience real peace of mind and spiritual well-being. Chanting helps me strike a balance. I am now able to manage stress better and am generally more positive when dealing with people.”

    It’s been two years since my film release. I have learnt a lot in this period. Everyone has his own struggles, not that I am the only one who was suffering in life. They say that I am a born with silver spoon, but in the two years I experienced the difficulties faced by common man. I give all the money that I earn to my mother. In the two years, there were no films and I was completely broke. It was difficult for me to ask my mom to lend me money for survival. I lost everything. Offers went away, films did not release and nothing was working in my favour.”

    I thought my girlfriend (Hansika) will be with me, but she ditched me when I was struggling. (Laughs).

I have been acting for close to 20 years now, but I have to go further. I still feel like I have just embarked on this journey and aim to hit a century. Fifty is a small number, there’s more to come. I want to act till my last breath.”
