We do not have the power to choose our own name during our birth as we get it from our parents. It took me a while to decide to change my name. Since childhood, I was bewitched by the name Aaryaa. I have always thought that, if I ever have a daughter, I’ll name her Aaryaa. But then I thought, why not keep it for myself and for the rest of my life be called by a name that I prefer to hear. Aaryaa is another name of goddess Durga Maa and Parvathi. It also means power and is connected with abundance, wealth and happiness. It sounds positive, which perfectly matches my personality and aura.”

I came from London seven years ago to do films. However, one doesn’t get served film projects on a platter. One has to work hard, keep working on your craft and never give up on your dreams. I enjoyed doing television and it helped me survive and improve my acting skills in Mumbai. I kept giving auditions and one day, I got a call to audition for this film and things just fell into place. Life comes up with surprises and I look forward to making a mark in Bollywood.”
