Describe yourself in 3 sentences.
Your typical Desi (Indian) girl who loves life! Food and wine are my favourite not so guilty pleasures! From fashion to reading/watching crime documentaries, there's a whole range of topics that I love to seek knowledge in!
What does my perfect day look like?
Staying indoors, with a good documentary on Netflix and some hot cocoa!
What is my clothing style?
I'd describe it as comfort chic! Love sweat pants, and a classic turtle neck, however I do like to switch it up at times!
My choice of swimwear?
Definitely anything that screams CURVES, CURVES and CURVES! I personally love my waist and hips , so anything to highlight those! I'd say my style is rather sexy summer!
My relationship with my body?
It is ever changing. There are days when I'd like certain parts to be different but there are days where I feel like I'm the finest thing walking on earth, haha! So it's a constant work in progress, just like love :)
Why is the #youbeyoucampaign important to you?
#youbeyou campaign is important to me as it serves as a reminder to myself. When I get involved in these campaigns, I remember how I feel on the sets, during shoots and of course looking at the final pictures and reading back interview questions & answers such as this, it reminds me of how great I feel about my body!
What is your favourite thing about your body?
My most favorite thing about my body, has to be my stretch marks! I call them my tiger stripes! Fortunately, I've never actually felt bad about them, ever. I never understood why women hated them cause I think they're amazing. They represent experiences and growth. It's what sets us apart from a girl to a woman. It's hot, period.
What's some thing you would love to see change in how women / bodies are perceived?
One thing I'd love to see change is how women perceive their own bodies. We are our worst critics. We talk down about ourselves before someone else does. Even if we don't say it out loud, we definitely do it internally, in our heads. Own your imperfections before they do. Once you own them, no one else can ever put you down as they'll see how you carry yourself.
Fun fact about me?
I'm a dancer and choreographer! I teach Bollywood and freestyle based classes for both beginners and intermediate! And I'm a huge lingerie fan, I own so many that I could open my own store !
