What’s one subject you could talk about for at least 5 minutes?
I think yoga and meditation because there are so many things in it.
What were you doing before modeling and do you miss it?
Before modeling I used to play lawn tennis. Now with my hectic schedule sometimes I play but, yes, I miss it to play regularly.
What’s something in your hometown you think every visitor should do or see?
I think every visitor should test Indian street food in my hometown.
What is one thing people may be surprised to find out about you?
The one thing people may be surprised about me is I come from very small town. And I was brought up in very small town. So coming from a small town and doing modeling is very surprising.
What stresses you out?
My architecture studies and projects stress me out.
