If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I’m very tomboyish. I wish I was the feminine type.

Your ultimate travel destination?

I would love to travel for at least six months in South America and see places like Machu Picchu.

One dance form you would love to learn?

Kathak. I am fascinated by it. It is so beautiful.

If you had to wear the same outfit for a week, what would you pick?

Patiala salwar, chappals and a kurta. Most comfortable outfit.

You have lovely lips, have they been a boon for you or a bane?

So much has been written about them. I feel that any publicity is good publicity.

One physical attribute you wish you didn’t have?

My butt. It’s always a talking point among all my girlfriends.

I usually meditate for some time.

Are you passive and quiet or jumpy and all-over-the-place?

I am always very energetic and excited about everything.

I feel it’s Kunal Kapoor. He really looks hot.

My eyes as well as my personality.

No, not in the traditional sense of it. I feel that you could live happily ever after only with your own self.

The last thing you bought for under `10?

A pack of chewing gum.

What turns you on?

A chocolate chip ice cream with extra chocolate from Baskin Robbins. Just love it!

What turns you off?

People who lie and who are rude.

Marriage is...?

An experience.

If I could...
I would buy the most expensive house

I would send my
mother on a world trip
Let her see every nook and corner of this beautiful world
i would have a
romantic association with Ryan Gosling
He looked so good in the movie Drive
