   Rohini Iyer

The name is:
Diya Mirza

Claim to fame:
I was Miss Asia-Pacific 2000 and will make my Bollywood debut with the to-be-releasedRehna Hain Tere Dil Mein

How Net-savvy are you?:
I would give myself a 4 because I log on only to email or chat. I'm not much of an expert.

How often do you surf?:
I usually make it a point to log on at least once, daily. At times I end up surfing really late after a shoot packs up, just to check the latest buzz on my films.

What do you like best about the Web?:
Everything. It's just perfect as it is.

If you could change one thing about the Internet, it would be:
If I had my way, I would change all those unflattering stories about me. There are these weird stories about 'link-ups', my non-professionalism, etc. All of it makes me really mad.

Your idea of a perfect Web site?:
Something that gives me lot of information and doubles up as a good search engine. I would love to know more about my favourite films, like who did the costumes for Titanic, how much water they used -- that kind of stuff. That would be my idea of a perfect site.

Do you go ego surfing, checking out pages or sites devoted to you?:
I call it my reality check, not ego surfing. The last time I did, I was depressed for days because there were these really nasty stories about me. However, I then realised that this could help keep me balanced. Now, whenever people praise me a bit too much, I use these reality checks and come back to earth.

Have you bought or sold anything online?:
I tried buying a painting once, but forgot my credit card number. That was my first and only disastrous experience shopping online.

Whom would you like to chat with online?:
Tom Cruise!
