All-time favourite outfit
It is lehenga. But since it is a party dress I can’t wear it as often as I want to.
Outfit when going for shoot
I like to dress casually when I am going for shoots so I wear skirts and tops which my mom makes.
Attire for evening wear
I prefer long kurtas or short or long skirts.
Outfit for formal occasions:
My favourite outfit for occasions like award functions or weddings would be a beautiful flowing gown or lehengas.
Brands in clothes:
Zara, Forever 21, Forever New, Bebe and Promod are my favourite brands.
Best-dressed actor and actress in Bollywood
Hritik Roshan and Deepika Padukone are the best dressed in the industry.
Like your man to be dressed in
Whatever he likes. What ever he wear, he should be comfortable in it.
Look best in
I feel capris, long skirts and Indian wear suit me the best.
Favourite brand in jeans
Levis is my favourite. The weird thing is that whenever I like a particular pair of jeans, I keep wearing it, till it tears. Then I buy a new one and start wearing that. So one pair of jeans is enough for me.
Favourite brand of sunglasses
I like aviators of most brands. I am not brand conscious in sunglasses.
It is Chanel and L’Occitane.
Favourite brand in watches
Titan Raga for its Indian collection because it gels with Indian dresses. I have around 15-20 watches.
Love shoes from
Jimmy Choo is my favourite for shoes
Favourite colours and fabrics
I love white, black, and pink and clothes in chiffon and silk.
Keep rotating our clothes in your wardrobes to unearth the hidden gems. Also mix-and-match clothes instead of repeating the same outfits every time.
Make-up brands you like
I love Bobbi Brown and MAC.
Like to highlight and conceal
My eyes and lips are my best features so I like to highlight these. But I don’t conceal much unless I have some pimples.
Make-up when not shooting
I keep it simple when am not shooting. It is usually lipstick and mascara.
Those with dry skin should apply moisturiser before make-up. For those who have oily skin, wash your face with water before applying nay make-up. If your face is puffy early in the morning and if your pores are too visible, then you should ice your face before applying make-up.
Shampoo and conditioner you use
My latest favourites are from Jean-Claude Biguine (JCB).
When I am shooting, my hair-care routine includes proper shampooing and conditioning. If I am not shooting, it consists of oiling my hair at night and washing them after my bath.
Hair care tip
Keep your hair clean – it helps protect your scalp, encourages hair growth and spares you from pimples.
