She mentioned how the actress is getting more success at this stage of life than before. However, Ratna also revealed her wrong notion that actresses can only work until they are young. Elaborating how she got motivated by seeing many other actresses working at an old age, Ratna said:

“For some reason, that was stuck in my head, that as a women, you act until you’re young and pretty. But then I looked around me and I saw so many female actors who were working well into their old age.”
