  • She is a book lover. In an interview, she shared her love for the Harry Potter novel series, she said,

 “I love reading and everyone should read. And Harry Potter, I have a special bond with it. I remember I used to be mad about Harry Potter because while we were growing up I started reading it and then the movies were coming. I remember the third book or something, I had bunked school and gone because they were giving some 100 copies and I have got my name written and I was so scared. I wanted to be the first one in my whole batch who has read the book. I told my parents please I have to get up in the morning because otherwise I will have to go after school, after 2 o’clock and they were like don’t be stupid and I started crying and threw tantrum. Then they agreed. After that, I picked up the book and went to school and was showing it off to everybody. Like for acting also you have to grow as a person to be able to act well, I feel. It’s only when you have different experiences you get to know different life situations different culture, so either you do traveling and I love traveling also but I don’t end up getting so much time. So if you don’t have the time to travel so much so the next best option is to read for you to grow as a person.”

  • She is well versed in speaking different languages like Hindi, English, Kashmiri, and Bengali.
