ModelSpeak: I would love to do Kareena's role in Chameli
Supermodel Alesia Raut opens her heart out on fashion, her first crush, bollywood dreams and three hottest men in India. In conversation with Sonil Dedhia
Can you share some summer fashion trends and tips?
It is summer time so I would like to dress light but at the same time glamorous so sheer tops are the in fashion thing.
A little bit of sequins would add up to the glamour factor. When it comes to make up I would suggest keeping it minimal and clean. For me it would be just eyeliner.
In terms of hair I would like to keep it short but my profession doesn't allow me to do it (Smiles).
Do you actually believe in fairness creams?
No I don't think they work.
Makeup you can't live without...
Which body part would you get insured?
My lips (Laughs)
The one place where you would never get yourself tattooed...
There are a lot of places (Laughs). Nothing that is visible.

I think (I resemble Sholay's) Basanti
If you could peep into any celebrities house, whose house would it be?
I would not like to intrude into anybody's privacy but if I had to do it then it will be Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan (Laughs).
Which character from Sholay do you most resemble and why?
I think it will be Basanti. Bindass and speaking up her mind at the same time being elegant.
