Shraddha Kapoor says it has never happened that success of her contemporaries has played with her mind even when her own films were not working at the box office. After a string of low performing films such as Rock On 2 and Haseena, Shraddha struck gold with Rajkummar Rao starrer Stree, which is on its way to cross the century mark at the box office.

When asked does it bothers her when her contemporaries enter the Rs 100 crore or 200 crore club, Shraddha said in an interview, "No not really rather what I think is how can I be a part of films that will be good for me as an actor.

"When Stree happened, I reacted to the narration as an audience. I was laughing, enjoying and I knew I had to be a part of this film. It was as simple as that. Rest nothing is in my hand. I don't know which film of mine will do how much business," she added.

The actor said the success of the film has not even "registered yet" and it is not going to change her script choices.

"It (getting a hit) is a really nice feeling but I don't think it'll affect the kind of films I would decide to be a part of. I am proud of every film I've done whether it's Rock On 2 or Haseena.

"Success and failure is a part of the industry. I've really tried from the beginning not be attached to either. I have to just do the best I can and that's what I chose to focus on," she added.
