    "My first ad for Perk chocolates happened purely by chance. I was at a friend's birthday party where I met Kunal, an ad filmmaker.

    Two days later, he called me saying that he had written an ad script keeping me in mind. He forced me to come for auditions. Although I was apprehensive, I thought what harm could come from just auditioning - there would be five people there and why would anybody pick me? Only. instead of five, there were 50, and I got selected after saying just two lines with the chocolate in hand."

    "I went to boarding school in Simla because my father was in the army. I was quite a tomboy, good in studies but always outdoors. Playing basketball and getting into scrapes was what I enjoyed the most.

    My father would take me to the golf course -- he was trying to teach me the game, but I was awful at it. Life was pretty normal till I turned 13 and my father died in a car accident. My mother was with him at the time. She was severely hurt and was bedridden for two years. I think that was the first turning point in my life," the actress had revealed in a Rediff interview.
