I am getting only these kinds of stereo type roles which I don’t like. I am bored acting in stereo type roles. Hence I will quit acting. Now I am going to concentrate in studies. I am now studying Plus 2. My only aim is to score high marks in the examinations. I have decided to pursue English literature and also become a fashion designer.”
