Why Kannada films?
The south makes meaningful films, it's organised and for me it's a good experience.

Why not Bollywood first?
I'm looking at offers but haven't finalised anything yet. Hopefully I'll sign something good this year.

Your debut role?
I can't say anything but the film is called Aishwarya.

You've taken acting lessons under Anupam Kher. What about the dance moves?
I'm a trained Bharatanatyam dancer and have done jive and jazz ballet etc.

Would you do a Mallika Sherawat?
I don't want to limit myself to any one thing this early in my career. I have a certain picture of what I'd like and will work towards that.

How is it to watch yourself on calendars, hoardings, commercials etc?
It feels good because it's a profession you wanted to get into. But I have a long way to go.

Why did you quit badminton? Sports and modelling are no more either/or issues.
I tried to do both but badminton requires practice and commitment which I can't give because I'm travelling...
