How has being a part of Miss Kerala helped you in life?
Miss Kerala pageant gave me fame. This pageant was my ticket to film field. Today I’am doing a Tamil film and I’am super happy.
Your upcoming projects?
I did one jewellery ad (soon to be released), then done magazine shoots (Grihalaxmi , Cinema Mangalam, Vakdevatha (Pune mag) ). Currently I’am doing a Tamil film (Jan/Feb release). Then I am also going to work in Lenin Rajendran’s next project.
Malayali girls are still skeptical on being part of beauty pageants. Don’t you think more Malayali girls should come forward?
Yes. Girls, you should not limit your dreams. Just fly with your dreams. The famous thinker Aristotle had said , ” Hope is a walking dream” and now I would like to add to it- “Don’t let your hopes die”. Make your dreams, your passion . Don’t forget! Hard work is the key.
Tell us about the most memorable thing that happened when you were part of Miss Kerala.
The night before the finale! All 9 days I waited to come out. I used to count days and I madly waited for the D-Day but on the 7th night, I realized that I’am gonna miss that sweet fear of Q&A training, the long wait for dinner and the late night talks after grooming (Marin, Nikita, Pooja and Shikha I miss you guys).
We usually see protestors for Miss Kerala every year outside the event venue. What would you tell them if you were given a chance to speak to those protesting?
Talent is God’s gift. If we give you a chance to come up on stage and answer the unexpected, tough, confusing questions submitted by widely experienced judges, would you be able to answer? Ladies have to prove their “BRAINS” in front of thousands. It needs talent and guts. Respect that talent and guts!
Who were your groomers for Miss Kerala?
Ritika Ramtri (pageant trainer) and Justin Bhatt (choreographer).
What drove you to be part of the biggest beauty pageant in Kerala?
My past success. I was Miss Kendriya Vidyalaya 2009-2010 (School level), and Miss Sinhgad 2010-2011(University level).
Tell us something about your personal life, and what you are doing currently.
I am a Pune based Keralite. Iam doing law. Modelling is my passion. My hobbies include photography, penning poems, reading. I love music. Both old and new. I would die without music in my life.
Message to Miss Kerala contestants for 2012.
First of all, I wish you all the luck in the world because winning is not all about beauty and brains. Luck plays the major role. Crown is not the end of life..crown is the end of pageant! Don’t run after the crown. Run after excellence. If you run after excellence, the glamor world will run after you. Best of luck. Have fun.
