I was a lot into neon. My cupboard was full of neon other than that crop tops are very in. This summer what I am gonna be using is long flowy skirts, palazzo with a crop top. I am blessed with good height so I don’t wear heels unless I am partying. But there are so many good options like a ballerina, flat footwear, and shoes.

If I am getting free early then I go for a jog. I don’t go the gym, there is a form of exercise called functional training. It’s a different exercise. You don’t need any machine. This exercise is basically for core strengthening.
8) Coming to a more serious topic, you are playing a role of a pregnant woman whose love has been dined and then she finds her way? There are many women who go through such situation life, what would be your advice to them?
It’s a very strong decision living in the society where we are, today also the Indian mentality is the same. It’s a very big decision of being a single parent and only strong women can do that. Hats off to them. There is always a reason that they are a single mother and nobody would want to do it out of choice. I think we all should respect such women, it requires huge courage and guts.

The audience has been very kind to me since the time I am doing this show. They have liked my character. Now there are these twist and turns and honestly people don’t want me to turn negative. I always get mixed reviews so I am happy
