In the civil services.

If you could choose a classic as your debut, which film would you choose?
I am very happy with Ghajini (2005) as my debut.

Would you rather be alone at home or alone in a party?
I am a very private person, so I would much rather be alone at home.

Who are you closest to in your family?
I am the only child, so I am very close to my mom and dad.

You destress with...
A nice foot massage and a good book works for me as a divine combination.
