If you were a reporter, who would you pick to interview from Bollywood?

I think Akshay (Kumar) or Varun (Dhawan) would be really fun.

One thing that you got scolded for a lot while growing up...?

Being mischievous, eh!

One Indian food you can’t do without…?

Mishti doi. I absolutely love it!

One actress who you would stalk...?

Audrey Hepburn.

One thing about Bollywood that took you by surprise?

The hard work that goes behind the screen is really amazing! The crew puts in a lot of effort to make the movies look so good.

You’ve got a new dance obsession…?

I do belly dancing, ballet, contemporary. However, pole dance is my latest obsession!

One habit of yours that you want to get rid of...?

I’m really addicted to dates!

The best part about being an ‘outsider’ in Bollywood?

Bollywood is like the massive family you have in another country. It’s home away from home.

One thing not many people know about you...?

I love to paint. Few of my friends and family members know this.

One thing you don’t go to bed without...?

I never go to bed without slathering my Oils of Life face oil from The Body Shop

A rumour you’d like to spread about yourself …

I’m naturally so fit that I do not need to work out or eat right to look the way I do.

The sexiest thing about you is…

No one is born perfect. But it is accepting and being comfortable in one’s skin that makes you sexy.

What pisses you off?

Lies. I hate liars!

One word that pops in my mind when I hear...
  • Varun Dhawan: Lively
  • Salman Khan: Mentor
  • Akshay Kumar: Punctual
  • Sidharth Malhotra: Charismatic
  • Ranbir Kapoor: Charming
