A Punjabi dish to die for

Your favourite Punjabi slang

What was your reaction when you were roped in for Shuddh Desi Romance?
I had too many emotions to deal with, but most of all I felt happy. I also felt obliged to live up to my team's expectations.

What was your equation with co-stars Sushant Singh Rajput and Parineeti Chopra?
Since we belong to the same age group, we got along pretty well.

Are things better for newcomers now than they were 10 years ago?
I believe so. People have started accepting and acknowledging new talent, even if he or she has no antecedent in the film industry.

What did you need to change about yourself to settle in Bollywood?
I still need to be more patient.

Were there things you had to unlearn to make a transition from being a model to an actor?
No. In fact, modelling helped me gain confidence and exposure.

What's your diet/fitness regime?
I eat everything, but in moderation, and work out only when I feel bloated. (P.S.: Not everyone should follow it.)

One thing that nobody knows about you
It's better that it stays that way.

Your strategy in a crisis
Don't freak out, (which I always do.)

A Punjabi song you can't stop humming
Paani Da Rang, from Vicky Donor. It's my all-time favourite.

A talent you would love to acquire
I wish I could sing like Adele.

The last line of your autobiography would read…

If you weren't an actor, you would be...

What would you wear to a hot date?
A dress or denims paired with a shirt - depending upon my mood.

Which colours dominate your wardrobe?
Black and white.

What are the five must-haves in every girl's wardrobe?
Jeans, shirts, tees, a dress and a maxi.

Do you believe fairness creams work?
I believe they do!

Three cosmetics you can't do without...
Lipstick/lipbalm, mascara and a blush.

A director you would give anything to workwith
Rajkumar Hirani

A rumour you'd like to start
That I'm paired with Bradley Cooper in Rajkumar Hirani's next film.

Which part of your body would you insure?
My torso

Who is your 3am friend?
I'm too sleepy at that time to call anyone.

If you woke up one day and found that you had turned into a man…
I would make the most of it by hitting on attractive girls.

A movie that was a part of your childhood
The Mask

A film that you have seen over five times
He’s Just Not That Into You
