Switzerland and Ladakh

“I enjoy visiting all the scenic places. I recently went on a Europe tour with my parents. It was special as it marked their first international trip. Of the places in India, I am in awe with Ladakh. I never expected it to be so beautiful. The mountains expose different shades every 2 km. Hailing from Mangaluru, it is obvious that I am a beach person. Whenever I feel low, I go and stand by the beach, watching the waves. It clears up my mind.”


Beladingala Baale and Padmaavat

“I enjoy watching films; it is a luxury, considering my busy schedule. The one movie I never get bored of watching is ‘Titanic’. Among the recent ones, I liked ‘Padmaavat’; the making, the script, the songs, everything is beyond words. Coming to Sandalwood, I like Ananth Nag. I love ‘Beladingala Bale’ the most.”


“I am not an avid reader. I like it better when someone narrates the story to me. I prefer watching movies. The last time I remember reading a book was during my MBA exams.”


Indian music

“I am more inclined towards Indian music. ‘Lag Ja Gale’ by Lata Mangeshkar is my all time favourite. Among the ones I have sung, ‘Appa I love you’ is very close to my heart.”
