What is your edge over the other contestants?
I am not just a dreamer, but a go getter. I dream and believe in my dreams; I have the fire in my soul to achieve my dreams with dignity. I think I am resilient and never give up on my heart and this go getter attitude is what sets me apart. I am self motivated, and think if your conscience tells you that you are right, you don’t need external validation. I am resilient and never give up; even if I fail I take it positively to forge ahead with maximum strength. I think my drive, determination, self belief and confidence is what sets me apart..

The last movie that made you cry:
I am moved by most of the things but the last movie that made me cry was ‘Uri- the surgical strike’…which portrayed how our brave soldiers stand strong day and night to protect the nation, how they stay away from their family and friends and how they are fierce and fearless and don’t care about their lives for the sake of people, their countrymen whom they don’t know personally.
Who is your favorite actor?
My only fear is losing my loved ones, my family. I wish they have a long healthy and happy life and I wish I am the reason for the happiness
Love is not only giving and doing selfless deeds for the person you love but also nurturing them by constantly showing the difference between good and bad, being there for them in their highs and lows and having their back always.
