How did 'Mistaken' happen to you?
I had gone to shoot a Punjabi music video which was going to be my debut music video in Punjab. It is not released yet, and they (makers of 'Mistaken') quite liked me, and asked me if I would like to be a part of their other music video which is 'Mistaken'. And hence, I was selected for it.

How was it shooting for the song during the COVID pandemic?
We had to be very careful during the shoot and took all precautions and followed the set guidelines. It had been a while I’d been at home so finally travelling to Punjab for the shoot was refreshing.

What is the first thing you look for when approached for a music video? What struck you with regards to this song?
The song is the most important for me and my part in it. I liked the rhythm of the song and it’s catchy and has good potential. So, I chose to do it.
How you look at your journey from India's top model to Love Aaj Kal? Are u happy the way your career is shaping up?
I love my work. I love the camera and am glad to have made me way to good opportunities to perform. It’s gratifying and I continue to work hard and put my 100% in whatever I do.

You come from a non-filmy background. What's your take on nepotism? Have u ever faced it?
I don’t think about nepotism. I only focus on my work and my goals.

You enjoy a huge fan base on social media. How do you deal with social media trolls?
I love my audience. Their support is a strength. Sometimes I do find some negativity but there’s always the good and bad.

How much you like Punjabi culture. Any plans to do a Punjabi film in future?
I loveee Punjabi culture, their spirit and especially the food! Well, if there’s a good opportunity, why not!

What are your upcoming future projects?
I’m doing two web series and a movie. So, preparing and shooting for those. I am working on my appearance and the script. I also want to travel abroad next year, but post the pandemic, when the situation is better.
