Nauheed Cyrusi

Claim to fame:
Model-turned-actress. Was recently seen in Supari and is also acting in Vikram Bhatt's Inteha.

How Net savvy are you?
I used to be a Net addict in college. I would be online all the time. I have to check email once a day, no matter how late I get home, or before I leave for a shoot early morning. I chat because I have friends who are abroad and I love it. I am not as addicted now.

Any favourite sites?
I use and for information I need. Otherwise, I surf only for time-pass and entertainment. What really annoys me are sites with completely useless information. I think a good site should load quickly and be easily accessible. I would like to have my own site, maybe a few years later.

Do you have a favourite Web based gadget?
I would like a laptop, because that would make things really simple. But for now, a handy-cam is what I really want!

What do you like most about the Internet?
What I like most about the Net is the ease in getting information and connecting with all my college friends who are abroad.

What do you hate about the Internet?
What I hate is that people can misuse information or pictures and it's difficult to find the real culprit. Considering the industry I am in, that is a scary thought.

Any strange experiences online?
When complete strangers, who may or may not be fans, decide to add you to their messenger list. Thank God, one can refuse them!

Do you download music?
I am a huge music fan. I download at least two or three songs everyday from, which allows you to search for any kind of music. My favourites are themes from mini-cartoon series like Southpark or Beavis and Butthead.

Do you ego surf?
Nope. My friends do it and then drag me to have a look at the stuff written about me. But I find it quite weird!

What's the ring tone on your cell phone?
I love strange and weird ring tones. The current ring tone I have is composed by my boyfriend and goes all over the place. I don't like the sweet and popular types. I prefer the unusual ones, which express my dark side!
