Slay Queen Trinetra Haldar

August 10, 2023 10:20 IST

Trinetra Haldar Gummaraju's Instagram handle, Trin Trin, sounds like a cycle ki ghanti -- and like that bell, she posts the kind of stuff that's loud enough to wake people up from their slumber. The descriptor is intriguing to start with: 'brb, making lemonade and adrak chai'.

'Kuchh toh log kahenge, logon ka kaam hai kehna', adds the actor who stars in Season 2 of Made In Heaven.

A doctor by training, who earned her degree from Manipal's Kasturba Medical College, Trinetra, 26, has been named after Ma Durga and she calls herself 'artist, doctors, trans, aurat, vagairah'.

Trin loves her saris and her cupboards must be stuffed full of them; she wishes she could wear them all day and and do nothing.

The doctor-actress might call herself an 'unpopular nerdy misfit' but boy IS she a snappy dresser.

'I've never seen someone slay white so good', says an awed follower. True dat.

IMAGE: Cut-outs often veer towards abstract art, and quite like a Picasso or Joan Miro work, one can imagine so many images in cut-outs -- do you see the head and shoulders of a person in Trin's ever-extending neckline.
