How did modelling happen?
It started in 2010 when I started with my fashion design. I was presenting my collection on the runway and a photographer just saw me and said you should model. So I went to a modelling agency and did a few advertisements and then through Instagram I got jobs.
I was so passionate about it. So since then, I have been modelling.

How did Bigg Boss 5 happen?
I have been watching Big Boss from Season one to Season four. I was a big fan always wanted to know how it was to be in that house. I knew from outside but felt there must be another story inside and what they show us is another story. So I wanted always to experience that. One day I just randomly messaged Pradeep Milroy and then a few months later I got auditioned and a few weeks later they told me I should pack for 100 days. So then I came to India.
