'I don't need to resort to tactics to get attention'

From a courtesan of a different era to the super hot vamp, Aishwarya Rai believes in variety. The traditional attire of Umrao Jaan has given way to skin-showing Western outfits in Dhoom:2.

The actress talks about her action sequences, her stunning look and more.

Did you do your stunts yourself?

Yes, a couple. The high point was probably at Orabi Gorge, where we had the jump. There's this moment where Hrithik's character (Aryan) challenges mine (Sunehri) in the film to jump. She goes for it and so does he. That was an absolute high. Never in my life have I experienced just literally jumping off the edge. Of course, they looked after our safety.

You are playing a negative role in Dhoom:2. What was it like? What was the rationale behind taking on this role with negative shades?

I will not define my character as negative or positive because she's a live wire in the film and with a character that's just typically her. It will take you a while to figure her out. That was the idea when we agreed that I perform her -- you will not be able to slot her.
