The 23-year-old is also inspired by Bollywood actress and former beauty queen Priyanka Chopra. "Priyanka Chopra really stands out to me because she's an explorer - she has always chosen to push her boundaries and made her mark in various spaces - music, movies, entrepreneurship, social work and the list goes on. Also, as a shy kid who tried to make herself heard, I always looked up to Priyanka for the outspoken badass that she was. It's her versatility and strength that I draw inspiration from," shared Manasa. She thinks of herself as a free-spirited, curious, and ambivert person.
