“There is something so romantic about beaches. Just imagine watching a movie under open skies as you cuddle.”
This is your first time in Maxim. How does it feel?
Excited, to say the least! Maxim has always featured strong women who are unapologetically sexy, real and comfortable in their own being, and to be a part of this family is an absolute honour. The whole team was highly professional and a delight to work with, which made my job easier.
You’ve been modelling for a while and now you’re getting into acting. How’s it shaping up for you?
It’s in the initial stages at the moment and, for now, I’m taking in all the information and knowledge that I can. It’s a slow and steady process, and there’s still so much to learn, but they do say, “Slow and steady wins the race.” So, I’m confident I’ll achieve all the goals that I set for myself.
You’ve grown up in England, and now you live in India. Which country do you like living in the most and why?
I’ve grown up in three different countries and have always loved travelling. Every year I travel to at least two different countries, and last year I went to Indonesia and South Korea. But, no matter how many countries I visit and live in, India will always hold a special place in my heart because there’s so much to explore—be it cultures, religions or cuisines—one can never have enough of India. India is a world of its own.
How can a guy catch your attention?
I’m a sucker for a guy who knows exactly what he wants and isn’t afraid to just go for it. Someone who can hold a good conversation and isn’t arrogant. Also, I always observe how a guy treats others around him—it says a lot about a person. If he’s kind, he’s definitely got my attention.
How do you let a man know you’re interested?
I wear my heart on my sleeve, and if I fall for someone I’m not afraid to show it or tell them. When it’s mutual you just know without even having to really say anything and, lucky for me, it has always been that way.
What’s the worst pick-up line you’ve ever heard?
Heard way too many and they never work on me!
What’s your ideal date?
There is something so romantic about beaches: soft breeze and the sound of the waves... Just imagine watching a movie under open skies while cuddling with that someone special and enjoy their company, laugh a lot... And, how can I forget, delicious food would be just about right for me. To end the date, dancing under the stars isn’t a bad idea either, I guess.
When do you feel sexiest?
On a beach in a bikini, with no make-up on.
What’s the secret to a sexy selfie?
Good lighting and knowing your angles help; but, self-love is most important. Trust me, it works!
What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
Telling friends I’m busy when, in reality, I’m at home just watching movies and stuffing my face with all the unhealthy junk food that I can find.
Have you ever been on a blind date? How was it?
Never. My friends are slacking!
