What is more difficult -- walking the ramp or acting?
Definitely walking the ramp is more difficult because there are no retakes; and hence you can't afford to make any mistake. Comparatively, acting is easy. But walking the ramp is challenging.

Why did you agree to walk for the weavers' collection?
We are all social beings and it is through fashion and entertainment we can actually evolve new social values. Weavers are long neglected across India. It's high time to acknowledge their huge contribution to the fashion industry.

You have your fingers in a lot of pies -- acting, modelling, taking care of family -- how do you manage?
I am a positive person and want to try all the positive things in life.

What is your kind of outfit?
I love traditional wear, especially during festive seasons. But there also I prefer to try an Indo-Western look.

Who is your favourite designer?
There are so many of them. To me, Ritu Kumar is fabulous.
