The Shillong-born, 26-year-old beauty who worked in TV commercials before entering Bollywood, is evidently both experimental and versatile as seen in her brief, but impressive career graph. Daughter of a chartered accountant father, she realised during her boarding days at Bishop Cotton Girl’s School, Bangalore, that she was not cut out for academics.”I always knew that I wanted to be an actor,” she says. It was during her time at boarding school that she got exposed to multiple cultural activities ranging from stage and drama, to singing, dancing and sports. During her college days at HR College, Mumbai, she got the chance to do her first commercial advertisement, and soon many more followed. In order to overcome her fears and anxieties related to acting, and hone her skills, she also did a three-month workshop with Barry John Acting Studio, and since then, she hasn’t looked back.FONDEST MEMORYEverything is a beautiful memory onlyWILDEST DREAMBeing nominated for the OscarsFIRST JOBDoing a commercial television advertisement for Reliance during my college days, for which I got paid Rs 5,000INSPIRATIONVidya Balan.
