Sharmila in her interview with Mojo Story revealed: "We did some films for paying the rent or some for helping out a colleague. There were different reasons for making a film."

"If there is a good script, we didn't have scripts back then except in the case of Satyajit Ray, so if we got a good narration, we would be so excited that money wasn't any consideration. So there were many reasons why we did a film," she added.

She also spoke about her husband's reaction to the controversial photoshoot in which she wore a bikini: "I had already met Tiger. He was travelling, so I sent him a telegram that this is what has happened, so he wrote back saying, ‘You must be looking very nice’, which was a huge support."

“I kept doing things people didn’t understand,” she said.

She also spoke about what it was like to act in films from a young age, saying she wasn't "conscious" of the camera."

The veteran actor is acting in a movie after 12 years.
