A Punjabi dish to die for
I'm a true Punjabi and just love butter chicken.
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.

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
A rumour you'd like to start

Which part of your body would you insure?
Who is your 3am friend?
I'm too sleepy at that time to call anyone.
