On relating to Bend It Like Beckham as a child: "It was an Indian girl who wanted to play football! That movie was literally made for me. I just thought I was Jesminder."

On the Charlie's Angels reboot: Calls Kristen Stewart a "pure artist". "[The movie is] about women at work. You don't see much about their personal lives or who they're dating. It's about the agency going global, getting into intelligence and tech, whistleblowing. You don't see bikini shots of their bums."

On auditioning for Jasmine: "I saw her as a young woman, not a teenager. With a mature strength that can cut you down. So I said to them, 'Just to let you know, I want to play her strong, and if that's not what you're looking for, that's OK, but it's not for me.'"

On playing Jasmine in 2019: "Playing Princess Jasmine in 2019, I'm very aware that young girls, young boys are going to be watching. What do I want to portray? This ICONIC character that I LOVED growing up. How can I make her well rounded and ambitious. Multi dimensional. Not there just to AID somebody else's story."
