My Pageant Journey:
This is not the first time that I am competing at a beauty pageant. My first pageant happened at the age of 18. It happened accidently. I was very passionate about acting, so I joined the Dramatics Society of my college. I went to Mumbai for doing a stage play. And there, I somehow came across a pamphlet on a beauty pageant organised by Miss Indian Association inviting applicants. Initially I was bit scared of the thing, because of inexperience in the field. However, I decided to register my name. That event changed my life. I donít know how, but I somehow won that title, Miss Mood Indigo 2013. Suddenly I found myself in the midst of professional models, international groomers etc .It gave me confidence. Then I decided to do more pageants. I also won Femina Style Diva North 2014 and Manappuram Miss Queen of India 2015 before this one.
Hobbies: Reading, travelling, writing, swimming, theatre and inspiring people
My strength: I am a positive person. Even if everything in my life is going wrong, I wonít lose hope. I have unwavering faith in me that itís gonna be alright.
Passionate about: Acting. When I am on stage, it is not me. When I understand the fear, the emotions that character is going through, that really makes me feel alive.
Movie experience: Tipu- The warrior of love, a Telugu movie directed by Jagadeesh Daneti, starring Sathya Kartik, M S Narayana, Samskruthi and many others. This is the last movie of legendary comedian M S Narayana. I am playing Vaishnavi, a girl nextdoor.
I am a student...
Alumnus of Delhi Public School, Madhura Road. I am Mascom student at Indraprastha College for Women, Delhi.
Bollywood... My dream:
I grew up watching Hindi movies and I would definitely like to land in a Bollywood project. Still, I will not mind acting movies of any language.
Favourite movie: Highway, directed by Imtiaz Ali
I admire: Aliya Bhatt
A big fan of: Ranveer Singh
My Style, my fashion
Favourite costume: Lehenga
I casually like to wear: I prefer vintage cloths to the modern wears. I love to wear skirts with lots of flares, pearls, cardigans, beige and tan coloured things like Audrey Hepburn.
Love & Me...? :No sugar coated love stories yet... I love the way my mother loves me, manages me and my sister, taking care of our whole family. For that very reason, I would like to marry and have a child, so that I can pass the same kind of affection and care to the next generation.
Favourite read- Inspirational books mainly. The Secret by Rhonda Byrne is my favourite book.
Favourite Travelling Destination: Hawaii, especially the star studded skies seen from the Mauna Kea Observatory, Big Island
My tryst with Kerala: I love the weather here. I am actually a summer person and I like the sunny days of Kerala. I had been to Kerala earlier on a family vacation. I had been to Munnar, Kovalam, Alappey and Cochin etc.
I love eating: I m not foodie, still I enjoy Sushi and North Indian cuisine
Hmmm, my advice: You must believe in yourself. When we overcome our own fear, we could achieve anything we want in our life.
