Five things we need to know about you?
I am a Bollywood movie and music buff! Movies are my first love, and everything I have done in life was strategically picked to take me closer to my goal of working in film. I was also handpicked to compete in Miss IPL Bollywood in South Africa!
I am a trained dancer, and have been dancing since the age of 4. Apart from my training in Kathak and Bollywood, I've dabbled in a range of genres such as contemporary and prop work (think fire and LED!)
I'm that girl who always has everything you need- my car is always packed with the most RANDOM things that come in handy at the oddest times. My cupboards are stacked with makeshift costumes for any occasion. And if you ever need something sourced, I'm the one you come to. No request is too weird!
My future goal is to engage in more acting projects. I like to do at least one big project a year where I am pushing my boundaries and challenging myself, so I'm always looking for new adventures...
My hair is my superpower.
