What is the most useless talent of yours?
It’s that I can sleep anywhere and anytime. That’s really a talent because it helps me a lot. Even if you blow a trumpet in my ears I won’t wake up. I’ll sleep on the floor and even now if you want me to sleep.
Which body part of yours do you think you can survive without?
I think I can survive without a toe. Once I fell off a horse and my nails came off. I don’t have a toenail in my right leg.
What’s the weirdest nickname you’ve got till now?
Have you ever been handcuffed or arrested?
No but almost. Once when I was in my hometown, I lied and went out with my cousins to a party. It was a normal party but suddenly the police came in. They started to arrest all the kids but we weren’t arrested. I got scared thinking I’ll get arrested.
How much cash are you carrying in your purse right now?
The other day some money was stolen from me, so after that I don’t carry cash. It’s so sad that people steal.
What’s a trend you follow but never approved of?
I want to follow a lot of social media postings but everytime I try to do it, I fail. Just yesterday I posted a reel which was after a long time but it was a trend going on where you had to stay active and have to keep up. You have to post a lot of reels and do everything that other people are doing, even if it’s weird for you. I tried to follow but I didn’t approve of it. Later on, I stopped it.
A compliment you received that sounded like an insult?
It’s not insulting but generally when people say “She’s so fair!”, I feel it’s weird when we take fairness as a compliment. It’s not a compliment, you’re just stating a complexion. So why is fairness a compliment and dark skin an insult? I would rather say “Oh her features are really nice”, “I really like how that color looks on your skin” but Indians have this thing that if we are fair then we are beautiful.
What’s a fictional character that would be really boring to meet in real life?
I would say someone from the cartoons that I watch. I watch a lot of it. You can ask me about any episode, be it doreamon or shinchan or whatever. If I were to meet Nobita, I think it would be a little boring.
My partner gives me the best...(Complete the sentence).
First of all, I don't have a partner. I would say my best friend gives me the best headaches.
What’s a lie you said in this segment?
I haven’t lied, honestly. Yes I know you will feel like I’ve lied about not having a partner because that’s what everybody thinks but honestly it’s true.
