We first saw her on the screen in her first commercial which was for Camlin pencils when she was only in standard IX. She was once rejected for a TV serial dubbing job before she became famous. She collects watches and hates jewellery! She speaks five languages – English, Hindi, Kannada, Tamil, and Urdu.
She is so pretty that a limited edition range of Barbie dolls inspired by her was released in Britain in 2005. The dolls were sold out within minutes and are now considered collectibles. Before she achieved all the fame, she trained five years as a dancer and is now lauded as one of the best dancers in Bollywood.
