Favourite outfit: Either you will see me wearing a salwar kameez or shorts and a T-shirt. There is nothing in between. Since I grew up in Lucknow, I love wearing cotton and malmal chikankari suit.

Favourite outfit when travelling to shoots: Shorts and a T-shirt.

Favourite outfit for a formal occasion: Dresses.

Favourite outfit for weddings: An anarkali suit or a saree.

Favourite outfit for an award function: A gown.

I like to sleep in: Night suits or kaftans.

Favourite fashion designers: I can name so many! I like Gagan Mishra, Payal Singhal, Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Raw Mango, Shantanu Nikhil…

Fashion confession: I prefer well-fitted clothes. I am not such a brand conscious person. I am tall, and the problem with tall people is not all clothes fit well. There are only a few brands that have the perfect fitting. Hence, I love Mango and Zara.

Favourite brand in jeans: I possess so many jeans that I have lost count. I shop for jeans for no apparent reason. American Eagle and Zara are my favourite brands.

I look best in: Salwar kameez.

Best dressed actress: Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone.

Best dressed actor: Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Ranveer Singh.

Favourite brand in sunglasses: Beckham.

My handbag always has: A sanitiser.

My travel bag has: A phone charger, wallet and photos of my family.

My favourite brand in handbags: Louis Vuitton.

My favourite brand in watches: I like smartwatches, so what better than Fitbit!

One fashion tip: People give too much importance to fashion; if you are fit and healthy everything looks great on you.

My personal stylist: Juhi Ali and Devki. For my hair treatment I go to my best friend’s mother Ratna aunty. I have also discovered Zeedo (Zinc and Doro) who are fabulous.

Make up tip: I like to keep it very minimal. My skin texture is fantastic as I pamper it a lot.

My tip on hair care: I use egg and aamla to nourish my hair.

Features I like to highlight when I do my make up: Eyebrows and eyelashes.

Favourite hair care brand: Sebamed for my daily hair wash. I end up washing my hair almost every day, since I sweat a lot after a workout. So, I use Olaplex to prevent my hair from becoming dry. I also like shampoos from L'Oréal and Juicy Chemistry.

Home remedies I use for my skin: After a run, I apply uptan to remove the dirt.
