/> Shooting in South Africa could be loads of fun. "The country is so breathtakingly beautiful, filled with natural beauty...But my heart is just not in it," sighs Kangana.

She's shooting for Suneel Darshan's Shaka Laka Boom Boom. "We're doing a song. And it's like a party. We shot it in a goldmine. Upen is great fun. And my God, he talks so much! Before he completes one topic he runs on to the next.

But I want to return home. My sister Rangoli is in the hospital. Of course my parents are there too look after her. But without me they're a little lost in Mumbai."

There's an added pressure on Kangana to return home. "My sister is supposed to undergo skin grafting for her burns in a couple of days. I really need to be near her. I don't want to delay the operaration. Rangoli wants to look as pretty as she did earlier for her wedding which is on 8 February. We really can't delay her cosmetic surgery."

Kangana feels the acid-throwing accident could've done worse damage to her sister. "Her face could've been irreparably damaged. Her fiancé could've called off the marriage. None of this happened."

Of course the professional side of Kangana will finally prevail. "If Mr Darshan asks me to stay back I will. But I'd really not like to miss my sister's surgery. And there's no way I'd allow her to be operated until I'm present."

Now the matter has been sorted out. "I return home at the end of the week and Rangoli's operation is in the first week of Novemeber. She's expected to be completely recovered. ...After the acid-throwing, anything could've happened.

Maybe some people don't like the fact that a small-town girl like me is being noticed so suddenly . I want to make it clear that I'm not here to be a threat to anyone.

But I won't take insults or injustice lying down... But God has been kind. My sister has got back her life. That's more important to me than any success."
