  • In an interview, Mandip shared that she had briefly considered becoming a police officer. However, she ultimately decided not to pursue her idea of becoming a police officer because she felt that she lacked the necessary skill set for the job.

  • Her go-to comfort foods are chips, pasta, and sandwiches. Whenever she visits her favourite restaurant ‘Wagamama,’ a British food chain that serves Asian cuisine, she always orders prawn firecrackers with extra sauce.
  • In an interview, she talked about the different kinds of roles given to Asian artists and also mentioned that Asian actors were not being typecasted in English films anymore. She said,

    There are more parts that say ‘non-race specific’. Years ago, there was one Asian person in a soap and the entire Asian acting community was going for that role. Now, you can find a few different Asian people, and their character isn’t entirely based on their religion or culture: they just happen to be in a soap. But we’ve got a long way to go and I hope that, in time, I can audition for anything and just worry about being the best person for the job, not the right race.”

  • During an interview, she discussed the types of roles she preferred in films and TV shows and shared her dream role. She said,

    When it comes to playing a character that’s not a Sikh, as I am, I always think, “Would I do this if the character was Sikh? Would I offend anyone in my family?” If the answer is no (to the latter), then I would always play the part. But there are still so many other roles that I would love to play, and hopefully, I’m in a position after ‘Doctor Who’ to be a bit choosier about which ones I do. I want to play Wonder Woman.”
