What is Arjun Kapoor, your co-star in 2 States, like?
He comes across as boring, arrogant and cold because of his face. I feel bad for him because that’s how his face is. His eyes are droopy and he has a droopy mouth. I call him the grumpy cat. But, he is an amazing person. He’s funny, intelligent and warm. He’s one of the nicest guys I’ve met. I love his sense of humour, which I never knew existed. I believe in the phrase ‘do not judge a book by its cover’ because Arjun is nothing like what he comes across as. What saves him though is his killer smile.
I don’t think you can really deal with linkups. I expected to be linked with both Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra because I was seen at different places with both. But that’s something that I’m not going to stop doing even if it create linkups. They’re very special to me.
Your biggest competition?
Parineeti Chopra. When I watched her in Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl, I remember telling myself ‘I am in for a roller-coaster ride’. The kind of command she has over her language, I wish I had. I spoke to her after Ishaqzaade and told her, ‘You have to teach me how to cry’. But there’s nothing negative about the competition. I’ll always be happy for her as I’m very fond of her. She’s sweet to me whenever we meet.
What qualities does a guy need to have to ask you out on a date?
He has to be tall. I like guys with a stubble and a big Adam’s apple. He has to have a personality and be funny. If he’s not funny then it’s going be really sad. And he must smell nice. Smell is something that attracts me instantly. So if the guy smells nice, there is an instant attraction. I use only men’s perfumes. I change my perfumes every month.
If not an actress, what would you be?
I would be nothing. I wouldn’t be alive…
Do you have a wish list of directors?
Zoya Akhtar, Raju Hirani. Ayan Mukerji and my brother Mohit Suri as well.
What’s your style mantra?
I am just 20. So my style is changing. Every month, every week, something new excites me. I’m finding my niche as to what suits me the best. I am a young girl and if I am just running around in a jeans and a T-shirt, that’s a lot of life lost. So, now is the time for me to have fun. If I go wrong sometimes, big deal. At least, I am not scared to take risks…
Your idea of a romantic date?
It’d be watching a great movie, having a burger, going for a drive and having fun that’s very effortless. A romantic date for me is sitting in pajamas and being with a guy with whom I can be myself.
What’s the best compliment that you’ve received so far?
Somebody told me that I look beautiful when I wake up in the morning. My idea of beauty has always been what you look like when you wake up. If you are beautiful, then you are actually beautiful, minus the makeup, clothes and hairdos.
A message for your Follo’ers…
I believe in being myself and being as raw and candid as I can be. So, if sometimes I don’t look like the picture perfect pretty little thing then forgive me because that’s not how I actually am. I’m allowed to make mistakes and I make a lot of them. If you continue to love me for my mistakes, I will continue to love you for yours.
