How did acting happen for you?
It was right after my 10th Board Examinations and there was an entire stretch of holidays. I had done some print ads and I auditioned for a role all thanks to my mother and I got it. It is actually my mother who dreamt that I should be an actress.
How are you managing studies and acting?
Oh! It is very difficult. With serials , you barely get any time to dedicate to your studies. I missed my examinations!
How is the camaraderie on the sets?
We have a mix of senior and junior artists. I'm fairly new and do not understand politics. I just can not be diplomatic. But, so far , so good!
You are dating Ashish Kapoor. There were so rumors that you guys parted ways.
No. We are still together and we enjoy spending time with each other (Smiles!)
What is your off day like?
We do not get any off days! It is just back to back shooting.
What is your dressing style?
I do not wear Indian clothes. I basically stick to western wear - denims , skirts , shorts and dresses!
What is your guilty pleasure?
I love shopping. I just can not resist it ! I take Ashish Kapoor along and poor guy has to pick all the shopping bags!
You are very popular and have an immense fan following. Any interesting fan encounters?
There are not any encounters so to speak of. I mean fans recognize you and smile or wave at you. It is of course very satisfying. But , I feel the best compliment is when some senior artist see your work and come up to you and appreciate your work!
Which was the last movie you watched in the theater?
I watched Housefull2 and I must confess I slept through the movie. It was so boring!
What is your dream destination for a vacation?
I'm not going to take any fancy exotic foreign location's name. I'd rather see India first. India has so much to offer and I would want to see India's beauty.
If you were not into acting , what you would be pursuing professionally?
If not acting , I'd certainly be into fashion designing. I love fashion and I love dressing up , so had to be something related to fashion.
Are you a music buff?
Absolutely ! I love music, I love singing and dancing. I love grooving to Desi Boyz 'Tu Mera hero' these days. It is just a great song !
