We hail from Dehradun. I was born on September 11th. I was born in 1982, so you know my age too. My dad’s name is Pushpendra and my mom’s name is Neeraj. I’ve completed by B.A from Lady Shriram college, Hyderabad. I love to dance and I have been formally trained in Kathak. I like to swim, read books, listening to music. I also like to speak and interact with the public. I like Paulo Coelho’s novels. Amongst food, I like daal-roti. I prefer home-made food over eating outside.
Now, tell us about your favorite stars.
In Hindi its Amitabh Bachchan and Madhubala. And in the South, its none other than Megastar Chiranjeevi.
What’s your preference when it comes to dressing up?
I’d prefer getting ready in a saree. But, I am told I look good in westernized clothing. So, I end up wearing them most of the times.
Its been many years you’ve come to the industry, how come you don’t speak to Telugu at all?
I know telugu in tid-bits, but when I talk people end up laughing and making fun of me. So, I am happy communicating in Hindi and English itself.
Why are you exposing so much these days?
What to do? Earlier I got very good characters. Now, I am offered roles that demand me to expose. So I can't let go of those few good offers I get. Moreover, I also have been doing good, meaningful roles along the way too.
