MY LIFE


I AlWAYS KNEW...I wanted to be on stage........in front of a camera...I always knew I wanted to sing and act...and dance...
I was born to parents who were nothing but encouraging of my dreams. Thus all through school in Muscat and college in Mumbai, I would not miss an opportunity to be a part of any activity that allowed me to perform. It was tricky after college though. There were hundreds of auditions and meetings and for a while, nothing seemed to be going my way. However, one day, just around Christmas, I was in the neighborhood distributing sweets when I happened to walk into a shoot and was pulled into it just because I happened to be there...this turned out to be my first ad campaign back in 2002 for a finance company...this made things better...one thing led to another and before I knew it I was on billboards and in tv campaigns. It was a matter of time before I landed my first job with Channel V...



But in 2007 EVERYTHING CHANGED...I quit my job to join the Miss India pageant...and...I won...nothing has been the same since and there aren't any words to describe the feeling of having accomplished a dream that I had carried since I was 3. Winning also gave me a sense of confidence that somehow made nothing seem impossible. Since then, I've done many a film, both international and Indian. I've pursued my dream of being a musician. I'm now a certified YOGA instructor. And I TRAVEL...a lot...

I am truly grateful...I AM VERY BLESSED...my friends and family have stood by me through thick and thin and they give me the strength I need to be fearless...because there are so many dreams that I have yet to fulfill...
