Elaine says she is motivated by the thought of where she comes from, where she is and what she wants to attain. According to Elaine, “…giving up is not an excuse for me. Acting is a way of expressing happenings around us to masses. It's a way of communicating wrongs and rights to the world. Therefore I take it upon myself to communicate to people who are down trodden, who have lost and tell them not to give up. To me it's a God given talent and job”.
