What is the craziest rumor you have heard about yourself?
I hear rumours about me dating someone who am not even friends with all the time.
What has been your biggest achievement before Miss India?
Being born and brought up in the outskirts of a small town, grown up in a very conservative Muslim family, yet I broke all the stereotypes irrespective of the place I come from and the family I belong to and became a model in Bangalore. I consider every act of mine as an achievement and that keeps me going in life to accomplish more. Being a person from the toughest background, the place I have reached today despite all odds and rejection is my biggest accomplishment. The tourist Information centre I designed as an Architecture student was selected as the best design of the year by the University. I was also one of the Bangalore’s finalists of Yamaha Fascino Miss Diva Miss Universe India 2018.
