"All actors try to change their image to reinvent themselves. When it comes to exposure, I strongly believe that it should be done according to the demands of the character."

Hrishitaa, who made her debut in tinseltown with Santosh Sivan's Asoka (2001) opposite Shahrukh Khan, has had a mixed innings so far with modest films like Dil Vil Pyar Vyar, Shararat and Jigyasa in her kitty . Unlike her role in Jigyasa, where she's a Bollywood aspirant who becomes the victim of the casting couch, in real life, she's been "lucky. And it also depends on how you handle things," she points out.

Her trek into films wasn't planned at all. "I wanted to become a pilot and later, I wanted to be an architect. Destiny made me an actress," she laughs. Hrishitaa used to be actively involved in school and college drama fests. At 17, Asoka landed on her lap. She says, "Things just kept happening since and there has been no looking back for me." Today Hrishitaa is also juggling regional language films, including a Bhojpuri film, Babul.
