Hi Erika, welcome to the Maxim club!
Do you think American women generally find Indian men desirable?
Of course they do! America is such a melting pot; we love sexy, exotic men.
Okay, noted. What are the three things you look for in a man?
He absolutely has to make me laugh! That is very important. He must be a gentleman; I don’t like rude people. Finally, he needs to be respectful. He needs to treat the women in his family well; it’s a reflection of how he will treat his woman.
Would you be open to a blind date with an Indian guy?
I don’t know! I’ve never been on a blind date before.
Your Instagram feed is on fire. We always wanted to know, do hot girls get together first, and then, drop awesome photos? Or, is it the other way around?
I would say a mixture of both...It depends on the girl. I like to take photos and post them later. I like to be in the moment and enjoy my time with who I’m with.
Does being on social media all the time ever become a drag?
I believe everything is good in moderation. Sometimes it can be a little too much. That’s when I take a few days off; but then I come back. It’s a really fun tool.
You’ve acted in a bunch of TV shows. What’s your fondest memory?
Being on How I Met Your Mother was amazing. It was such a fun set to be on. It was the first set I’ve been on where the whole cast came up to me, introduced themselves, and thanked me for being on the show. They were all very lovely and humble.
Priyanka Chopra just did a show. How did you and your friends react to it?
My first time seeing Priyanka was when she did Quantico. I remember looking at her and thinking, “Wow! Who is that?” She is so breathtakingly beautiful and talented. I’d love to meet her someday.
What do you love about Los Angeles?
I love everything about LA. It’s my home. I meet so many people living here and there’s always something to do. I see tourists coming to town, and then I think, “Some people have to save up money to visit LA, and I live here!” I’m very lucky.
You are super fit. Do you seriously work out or is it just eating right?
A little bit of both. I go to F45 three to four times a week, and I try to eat healthy. Don’t get me wrong, but if I crave something bad, I go for it!
Does this mean that you’ll only date fit guys?
Physical attraction is also important, and I believe in being fit together. If I can put in the work, so should he.
How do you feel about couple workouts?
It’s fun to work out together sometimes... But, I also love going with friends or even alone—it’s therapeutic.
Do you enjoy sexy shoots?
Absolutely I do! I think every girl should channel her inner sexy goddess and feel good. I like to mix it up with beauty and fashion as well.
When do you feel sexiest?
That’s a tough one. I feel sexy in a lot of things, but I’m going to say men’s button-ups.
What are the three sure-fire ways for a guy to catch your eye?
Confidence is key! There’s something hot about a man with confidence (not to be mistaken with being cocky). Also, being funny and having a great smile helps.
We just have to ask one more question. What’s the one thing a man does that really puts you off?
Being rude and disrespectful will surely get you off my list, real quick.
