What film would you do next?
A romantic film or in the romantic space, for sure.
Who do you usually discuss your films and projects with?
Honestly, I speak to my dad and I speak to Reshma Shetty, my manager because I think they are extremely realistic when it comes to me. They are not biased in any way and I like that. I like people being a little hard on me, who pinpoint my flaws and help me improve.
What are your make-up essentials?
I always have a lip gloss, a cheek tint, and mascara on me.
Any idols growing up?
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan - I've always looked up to her for her beauty and the way she carries herself.
Do you have a signature fragrance?
For Her by Narciso Rodriguez. I've been using it forever, my mom uses it and I've taken it from her.
Any home remedies that you use for your skin or hair?
Since I was young, I remember my grandmother sitting me down and putting coconut oil in my hair every Sunday. So that hasn't changed, even today I follow that.
