I strongly believe in the power of divinity. During my hard times I connected my mind to Him and cut myself from what was happening to me. I surrendered to God.

Follow your dreams. But don’t be a slave to them. Sometimes people set goals they can’t achieve. It’s okay. I have accepted we are in the midst of a kalyug. Just go with the flow. Our world is transforming into a sci-fi film. Now I understand there are many shades in life. Take off your rose-tinted glasses and experience life in all its colours. I was vain about being destiny’s chosen one. Now I am awakened. I have stopped smiling. I can’t find anything to smile about. - Prerna Arora

Globally, there has been a radical shift in lifestyles during three years. Celebrities too have their share of ups and downs. Fans of stars who follow their favourite stars on Instagram or Twitter tend to emulate both the good and the bad aspects of stardom. It’s up to the individual which side he or she wants to follow. - Prerna Arora

Women in this industry are often treated like dirt. I had no choice but to swallow my anger. Now I want to be a clever animal in this jungle. I have learnt to say no to what I don’t want to do. The power of no is important. I learnt it the hard way. My advice to people who are not getting what they want in life: be true to yourself, no matter what it takes. It is like rush hour on the road. You have to know where you are going. - Prerna Arora

I could be hit by a bus tomorrow, and that’s it, but performances can go on and on and on and on. And outside of the understanding that it’s been done with AI or deepfake, there’ll be nothing to tell you that it’s not me and me alone. - Tom Hanks
