Kolkata: Movie veteran Sharmila Tagore describes herself as a "working actor", and says she does not believe in star status.
"Also we call ourselves working actors. I do not believe in the star status because somehow you get disengaged from life... once you are in that place, then you are not in touch with (people). I would like to mingle with people," Sharmila said on Monday at the Tata Steel Kolkata Literary Meet here.
Asked by audience members on whether her children, actors Saif and Soha, have picked up her advice on their careers, the multiple National Award winners said she had never exhibited her stardom at home.
"They have seen that (how I mingle with people). They have learnt from examples. They have seen me work and learnt the value of hard work.
"They have never seen me becoming a star at home. I think they have taken a bit from that, even Saif, who is in another galaxy. Even then, he is very much a normal person. They have learnt from seeing their mother more than any verbal advice," she added.
