I was asked to come an audition for the role, I gave a look test and got finalized for the show.
How has your journey been so far in the industry?
My journey has been pretty interesting and good. I
to Mumbai 3 years ago and in the beginning it was very difficult since I
was new to the city and did not know anyone. However, now everything
has become smoother for me.
I haven't had any scenes with Mona yet but she is very
sweet. Mouli is great and very co-operative. This is my
first show and she has been very supportive. I learn a lot by watching her.
Neelam is very sweet and chilled out. I like traveling and watching movies which is my biggest time pass.
The type of role you wish to play in the future?
want to play anything which is exciting, like Anika is a character with
a lot of shades. I wouldn't mind doing a negative role or a typical
Bollywood kind of role or that of a psychotic person. Actually, anything that
appeals to me.
What do you do in your free time?
my free time I just want to relax but when I am not shooting I spend a
lot time doing domestic chores. Also, I make sure I go to gym, like
this week I only went to the gym once. I also go learn Kathak and
whenever I get I call my teacher and learn from her. Apart from
that I hang out with friends and as I stay with my sister in Mumbai I
some time with her too
Your favourite food?
now I am eating a sandwich but I love anything made from potatoes. My
favourite cuisine is Thai and apart from that I live Mexican food too. I
hail from Punjab and so I love to eat Noth Indian food. It reminds me
of my mom's cooking.
Favourite holiday destination?
all the places I have been to, Spain would be one of them and Turkey
was amazing. There are many other places that I want to visit. I am more
of an exotic person, so anything with beaches is something I like.
Favourite TV show at the moment?
Kya Hua Tera Vaada (laughs).
Favourite TV actor/actress?
Right now, all my support and love is for Mouli Ganguly.
What do you have to say to your fans who are watching you in the show?
Well, if they relate to me, they will like me and because of their support, I get the courage to do better and bigger.
