1.How old are you and where are you from?

I am 20 years old from kerala.I was born in palakkad, kerala but lived in Canada my whole life. Been in Bangalore for three and a half years now and just loving it


2.How did you start modeling?

Umm I never thought I would ever become a model. I was always a tom boy growing up. I was an athlete and only had male friends. I got into it when I saw manish gupta’s portfolios and fell in love. I wanted to get one done right away. After that, I did an ad for a hair oil brand in kerala with Malayalam actor Jairam and I remember how nervous I was and what a bad job I did. I had two very close friends and well known models, Natasha Manjunath and abrar zahoor teach me everything after that. From posing, to ramp walk,etc. work just kept coming in after that.

3.What was your first big break in the industry?

My big break was a jewelry print and tvc ad for Parakkat jewels in Kochi. We shot for more than 14 hours three or four days and it turned out to be beautiful. The hoardings and commercial were released all over India and the UAE.

4.What has been your favorite job so far?

I think shooting for chungath gold and kochi fashion week are my favourites. I met some amazing people and had such a fun time shooting

5.What is your dream modeling job?

I don’t really have dreams. I take it how it comes. I never thought I would be doing ads for such big brands like Im doing now. Im very happy after my kalyan silks campaign released. My next step is to do a movie.. a bollywood movie more specifically.

Oh god, I am always falling sick thanks to the travelling. I already have back problems so im very careful. Going for physio and massages regularly. After a few weeks of travelling around, I come home to my bed and sleep for 24 hours

10.What’s your favorite snack?

I am such a foodie! I love all kinds of food. Maybe chips.. I eat way too much junk.

11.What beauty tips do you swear by?

My face and body moisturizer. I don’t leave my house without it. Also, drinking lots of water. It helps to keep your skin clear and healthy

12.Who do you aspire to be like? As successful as?

Sushmita sen. I think she’s beautiful inside and out. A 21st century woman.. who proves that a woman doesn’t need to depend on a man to start a career, financial security or to start a family. Shes come from a middle class family and made it big.


14.Tell us something little known about you.

I have an OBSESSION with biriyani. I can go to the gym, eat right, but never give up my biriyani on sundays. I have a butterfly phobia.. its quite bad. I freak out when one comes too close. I am also the clumsiest person ever.
