Bedding the stars: Shenaz Treasuryvala, actor
Do you have a hard or soft mattress?
It’s in between hard and soft. A very soft mattress, although comfortable in the moment, hurts my back.
Do you have a cluttered bed?
Nope. Not at all. I need three fluffy pillows to sleep. One to hold, one under my knees and one to rest my head on. Yes, I am a high-maintenance sleeping beauty (winks).
What’s your favourite kind of sheet, cotton or satin?
Nothing but the finest, best quality cotton.
Do you need your eight hours of sleep or you can do with power naps through the day?
I need eight hours of uninterrupted sleep every night. Sometimes even 10. But of course I do not always get this. Recently I’ve been shooting for a movie and we work mostly at night, so I’m not getting any sleep. Sleeping during the day is difficult.
Is there one bed thing you carry with you everywhere?
When I was six, yes. Not anymore (laughs).
Do you keep your phone on silent at bed time?
Yes, absolutely. I can’t have my phone on in the night. I’m a light sleeper and wake up with the lightest sound and then find it very hard to go back to sleep.
Do you sleep with a light on somewhere?
Never. In fact, quite the opposite. I cannot have any lights on or I do not get sleep. Even the little red light from the TV needs to be off or taped out.
