I was a backbencher and used to draw sketches in between commerce lectures. Most of my doodles were expressive eyes or girls wearing glamorous clothes on the ramp. My classmates used to tease me. They would say, “What the hell are you doing here in Commerce, you are an ‘art person’. This is not for you. Go ahead and apply for some creative course!” A very good friend of mine used to push me to take risks. She’s the one who told me to follow my heart.”

In college, my batch-mates would ask me to model their clothes. They’d tease me saying, “Waah ye ladki toh designer bhi, aur model bhi! Sahi hai”! For a while, I modelled professionally to earn some extra pocket money. Then I got a job as a designer. Even then my bosses would ask me to model their clothes to save time and money. At that time, I was leading a monotonous life. A 9-9 job that made me realize the dearth of freedom and growth.”
