YOU HAVE BECOME A STYLE ICON FOR INDIAN MILLENNIALS. HOW DID YOU DISCOVER YOUR SENSE OF STYLE?
Thank you very much for this question because I did not know I was or I had become the style icon for the Indian millennials. I discovered my style early on and I always believe that comfort matters the world to me. And my comfort is wearing Indian outfits. I really feel very confident in them and probably that's how I discovered it too because you know Pranay who's also my stylist he helped me to understand my body type and what is more comfortable than what looks good on me so yeah, I think the sense of style only gets developed over a period of time. Pranay who also goes by ‘who wore what when’ helped me discover my style of playing with colours and at the same time in ethnic as I’m very much rooted in the Indian culture.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE WHEN YOU FACED THE CAMERA FOR THE FIRST TIME?
When I faced the camera for the first time I was very scared and nervous at the same time. The amount of make-up and hair and outfit it was just too much going on but there was this magic that happened on the moment the director said action. I just forgot that I was wearing makeup & had too many things in my head and was wearing this heavy outfit. This was the first experience I remember. There was this monologue act I had to perform and the topic was ma (mother) so that magic is indescribable.
WHAT KIND OF PROJECTS DO YOU WISH TO DO MORE OF?
The kind of projects I wish to do more is when I get out of my comfort zone. I like doing films which nobody has ever done before and want to be really known as a versatile actress of Bollywood & in that case it could be anything. I mean why do we see most of the actors doing action & Why not actresses you know? Playing a badass role is probably something which is feisty and griping & is something that I really want to do.

Weddings are memorable moments. Weddings in India are no less than a carnival and when you start a celebration on a high note, you wish to end them on a high note too.

And according to me the best way to do it is by sending your guests back home with a beautiful pack of gourmet gits pack.

ADORN YOUR WRISTS
There is something so timeless about a wrist jewellery – no wonder they’re often gifted at festivals and weddings. Bangles, kadas, cuffs or bracelets are the most popular forms of jewellery. According to Abhishek Kajaria, Owner/ founder, Avama Jewellers, “The staying power of the wrist jewellery speaks volumes. Nestled among more bracelets or solo as your stand-alone piece, a women’s wrist jewellery is an expertly utilitarian piece of jewellery.
