Hot Bangalore model and winner of India's first Miss Earth title in 2010, Nicole Faria made her Bollywood debut with Yaariyan recently. The ramp stunner who set the mercury soaring in the Kingfisher Swimsuit Calendar 2014 (see pics here) is among ace photographer Atul Kasbekar's list of Hotties who will make heads turn in 2014.

What should a guy definitely not do on a date?

I like self made men. Men who run their own life and achieve through their own struggles. Not men who ride on their parents' fame and fortune. Guys should not boast to boost their ego. Such men only making their likeability go down.

Relationship red flags...

One sided relationship, no respect.

How does it feel to be featured in the Kingfisher Calendar?

It feels absolutely amazing to be featured in the Kingfisher calendar. Not everyone gets such an opportunity. I feel happy to be a part of a creative project like this. After all, it has launched a number of careers and it should do some good to add value to my achievements too.

How challenging was the shoot for you?

The only challenge was lying on really sharp rocks and being in a freezing water fall while shooting. The rest was good fun.

Your performance in Yaariyan has been appreciated a lot. Any other Bollywood project in the kitty?

You will have to wait and find out... and I am a believer that good things happen all the time.
