The actress played a vengeful sex worker in the controversial Hate Story.
She told The Times of India: "I knew very well what character I was playing. Hate Story is a bold film so there will be bold scenes in the film. I loved playing Kavya because she is like any girl of today's generation who will take her revenge.
"In Hate Story, Kavya uses her body to do so. Hate Story has become a success and there have been very positive reviews. People have loved the film and they are not talking about the erotic aspect of the film but my performance. As for my mum, she is my biggest critic but even she loved the film!"
However, Dam added that she was not happy with the public backlash about the film's publicity posters.
She said: "Frankly, I was not happy and was a bit sad because I had worked so hard on my body. That poster reveals everything: hatred, power and revenge. It was very impactful.
"But at the same time, I know the censor board is doing its job. There are certain rules that need to be implemented."
Dam has previously described Hate Story as a "woman-oriented" film.
Director Vikram Agnihotri has said that Hate Story will change erotic film in Bollywood.
