Fashion has come a long way in representation, but sometimes for a show, they forget to look at you as a person and focus on your colour instead. You hear things like ‘enough brown girls’ or ‘enough white girls’. I know I have a responsibility to those girls who haven’t seen a South Indian with their skin tone being called beautiful in mainstream media. I want these girls to understand that I’m being myself and that’s what diversity is. It’s not just about race and colour but about individuality.”
- She also talks about how the colour of the skin should not be a big deal. She said that a person born dark or fair is not their choice. They are born by god`s choice.

Everyone has some unique features about themselves.

My mother doesn’t use any products but natural, homemade remedies like turmeric, coconut oil, and egg white. She always grows in her garden what she uses on her skin or her beauty regime. I also like [my routine] minimal and low-maintenance. It’s all about what you put on the inside, and the outside takes care of itself.”
- In an interview, she said that her essentials are Coconut oil, honey and her perfume.
- She does not gain weight very easily. She eats everything and does some stretching whenever she gets free time.

- Her life`s motto is- One day at a time.
