If you had just 10 minutes to get dressed, what would you wear?

I’d slip into an LBD (little black dress).

‘Whatevs’ !

One superpower you wish you had...

The ability to breathe and see under water.

Most bizarre thing that you have ever done:

Well, I studied fashion and then went on to become an actor!

Three things in a guy that turn you on:

They are articulateness, confidence and honesty.

The best thing about being a curvy girl is...

The curves!

Your earliest memory of a movie set...

I remember this very white set from one of dad’s films, where a fantasy song was being shot.

That one thing that you got scolded for the most while growing up:

I got scolded for eating junk food.

Three things not many people know about you:

That I am great at word games, terrible at math and I can’t cook.

One thing you are most likely to be caught doing when you are alone at home...

One thing you always wanted to change about your appearance...

I have lost count about those things.

An actress you had a girl crush on?

Three tips you’d give a girl who is making her gym debut this year:

The girl who lived, loved and laughed.
