- She liked travelling and dancing.
- She did an internship in L & T Realty, Mumbai before becoming a model.
- She wanted to become a model since childhood, but took up modelling after pursuing engineering and an MBA. In an interview, she talked about her passion for modelling and said,
Modelling has always been my passion. Being an MBA graduate and engineer never held me baçk in any way to follow my passion. Because I always follow my heart. When I heard about Cocoaberry from one of my friend and then learnt more about it from winners of different pageants, I was impressed because these winners are my inspiration to follow suit and their mentors were Anjali and Alesia Raut. I believe my dedication, self confidence and never-give-up attitude in any circumstances makes me a good model.”

- She often posted her fitness routine and receipies on social media, In an interview, she talked about this and said,
I work hard on myself to keep fit — I maintain a strict workout routine which includes both weight training and cardio and my diet has less carbohydrates and more protein, as per my body type. I am happy with the way my work is shaping up. I have been doing print and catalogue shoots on a regular basis, few ramp shows, two short films and one music video. For now modelling is my first love and will always be but acting is something I enjoy too. If I do diversify into an alternate career it would be acting.”
