Tell us about your journey ?
My journey started when I was 17. I participated in Miss India 2018 and I was one of the finalists from my state, Jammu and Kashmir. That was the first time I was doing something other than studies, and it was my first attempt at modelling. I had no idea about anything related to the field. It intrigued me when I started getting modelling assignments. I started enjoying doing it and two years down the line, I decided that it’s what I wanted to do for all my life.
Tell us about your music video where you featured in Jubin Nautiyal latest romantic song 'Tujhe Bhoolna toh chaaha'?
This music video was produced by T-Series and sung by Jubin Nautiyal. I featured alongside Abhishek Singh in the video. It was shot in different parts of Kashmir, but largely in Gulmarg. It was an amazing experience. We went to a lot of exotic locations that were untouched. It was a little difficult to shoot in such cold weather, because we shot in December and it was freezing. It was a day and night shoot for 3-4 days. But the experience was fun. I loved the song because it was very emotional.
Can you please tell us about your new song Baawla ?
Baawla released yesterday and we’ve been getting really positive response. The experience of shooting the track was amazing. The locations were very different and I don’t think any Indian music video has been shot in a private jet before. So, shooting up in the air was overwhelming and a lot of fun. I hope everyone likes the track.
How was the experience working with Badshah ?
The experience was great. We had a lot of off-screen instances during the shoot that have been included in the music video. Shooting with Badshah was fun because we were spontaneous and went with the flow. I was not required to have rigid expressions for acting in a certain way. It was very free-flowing and natural. Badshah is a hard working, patient and humble person and he was an amazing co-actor.
How did you come into acting and what motivates you?
I came into acting through modelling. That’s when I learnt that coming in front of the camera and feeling myself is something I really like. I enjoy going to the set, meeting people, talking to team members, knowing what their ideas are and putting my effort to turn them into reality. The process from ideation to implementation is what keeps me going.
What type of character do you prefer to do?
I would always prefer playing a powerful character that influences the story in a big way. I would love to do a women-centric film and play a strong character in that.
