Age: 25 years

Weight: 50 kgs

Height: 5'7"

My best asset: My versatility and my exposure and relations to two completely different cultures.

My worst asset: My time-managing skills and ability to stick to stick to prioritisation are not the best.

I think I should be the face of the Kingfisher Calendar because: This Kingfisher Calendar opportunity encompasses quite a lot. I feel it represents a sense of adventure -- a sense of self expression that relates to 'non-confinement' and exploration. It holds respect for the country that created it. Kingfisher is a mascot for India and the calendar shoot is a search for individuals who embrace a sexy dose of confidence and positivity. It exalts love for art and entertainment. These I believe, compose who I am.

My aim in life: I have always felt a sense of creative destiny since I was small and could not understand what it was. I do not aim to do one certain thing in my life. I do aim to continue bettering myself as a person, enhancing my abilities, increasing my awareness and travelling and researching from my experiences, creating philosophies and pulling it all into the work I do as a creative and performing artist.
