I was influenced by the Femina world and just dreamt of being a model but had never imagined that in future i could end up being one! Whenever the song of Femina Miss India used to be play on TV, I just used to get up and start enacting the walk, talk and actions of Models in Femina Miss India show, especially Sushmita Sen- She has been my role model and I adore her. I love this gorgeous lady and respect her in all ways".
She further added "It all started when my friends forced me to get into modeling as I am very tall and had good features needed for a model, but I never it a serious thought ! But as time changed, so did my thinking and I decided to give it a shot. I decided to trust what people think about me. My friend who worked in an AD agency introduced me to this modeling world, and from there I walked the first step of my career! And all this while during the struggle period, my parents have been strong pillars of support all my life, and I owe it all to them!"
She also added "I always maintain believe in yourself and it always pay - it did for me and I was crowned with- Femina Miss India Earth Pagent 2002! That moment of pride when I was crowned is just inexpressible, joy and happiness was just at its highest peak! My dream translated to reality!

It has taught me a lot in my life! It makes me feel proud when I look back at my journey of life as a model and an actor".
