OT: What does travel mean to you?

Evelyn Sharma: I began to travel the world when I started my career as a model. I realised, beauty comes from unexplored and unpredictable places. I started feeling blissful, and gradually, travelling became something I couldn’t live without.

OT: Give us some anecdotes from these travels.

Evelyn Sharma: Growing up in Germany, I just couldn’t get enough of the beauty of the place. After I started visiting other places like the Philippines, I got to learn a lot about different cultures and different kinds of delicacies. The locals would be extremely sweet and helpful. One of my recent discoveries has been Budapest, Hungary. The art and sculpture there was stunning and a treat for onlookers.

OT: What places in Germany do you recommend?

Evelyn Sharma: The places which one should never miss are the Neuschwanstein Castle for its architectural beauty, and the Wadden Sea for its perfect sunset. Apart from these, there are a lot more places to sightsee.

OT: Tell us about your journey as an actor and model.

Evelyn Sharma: I came to India to reconnect with my Punjabi roots, when I got picked up by the fashion industry. A big beauty brand signed me as their brand ambassador and that became a ticket to enter Bollywood, after which there has been no looking back. The journey from being a model to an actor has not been easy, but with each passing day, I try to better myself and achieve everything I have wished for.

OT: Tell us about your popular beauty and wellness blog, Evelyn’s Secrets.

Evelyn Sharma: The idea of unveiling my very own blog was to get closer to my fans by sharing rare insights from my life and what I truly believe in. Evelyn’s Secrets is very close to my heart.

OT: What have been some of your favourite places to visit?

Evelyn Sharma: Can’t really pick one but my best experiences have been in New York, Paris & the Philippines.

OT: What are some of your travel necessities?

Evelyn Sharma: The musts in my travel kit include a face mist to keep my skin hydrated on long flights, cherry flavour lip balm, a detangling comb and a big pillow because I have a tendency to fall asleep while travelling.
