The veteran actress will next be seen in sequel Dedh Ishqiya, taking on Vidya Balan's previous role.
She told the Hindustan Times: "I don't think marriage or motherhood has anything to do with an actor's work. My kids (Arin and Rayan) and husband (Dr Sriram Nene) know that I'm an artiste. I can't shy away from anything that a script demands, even if it's physical intimacy.
"If I'm convinced that it's essential to the script, and I know it will be shot aesthetically, I won't say no to intimate scenes. Vidya's [Balan] scenes were shot so beautifully in Ishqiya. If Dedh Ishqiya absolutely needs something of that sort, I'm game."
She continued: "I'm really excited about both my co-stars. They were brilliant in Ishqiya. I loved that film also because of Abhishek [Chaubey]. It didn't seem like a debut film. And I don't have enough words to praise Vidya. Her performance took the film to another level," she added.
In March, the Devdas actress unveiled her wax statue at Madame Tussauds in London, which she said captured her "likeness" beautifully.
She moved back to Mumbai from the US in September 2011 to relaunch her acting career.
