FB – What made you choose acting over everything else?
ES – I am a half Indian and since childhood, I have always enjoyed Bollywood movies. I moved to pursue my career as a model. I never dreamt of becoming an actor but it just happened and it’s been such an amazing and fulfilling journey till now. I really enjoy being in front of the camera especially when I started playing interesting characters on screen. It’s so exciting to get into someone else’s skin and this is what I thoroughly enjoy.
FB – What would be your plan be if not acting?
ES – I already run my own charity trust, ‘Seams for Dreams’, through which I try and do as much as I can and give back to the society I live in. I am very keen on spreading awareness for more responsibility in fashion and to make a difference for the future!
FB – Name the role you enacted that you loved the most.
ES – I absolutely enjoyed working in Saaho. This was my first ever action-packed role and I enjoyed every bit of it. This was a different experience for me altogether because I usually enjoy doing comic roles but action – as a genre took me by surprise and that’s something I absolutely loved. I think comic roles like in YJHD and Main Tera Hero will always be my favourite though! The most interesting role for me was playing Luvleen in Ishqedarriyaan.
FB – What do you prefer – acting or running businesses?
ES – I feel in every area of life do you have to know how to be a great actor because you’re always yourself, but you’re always playing a role too. Sometimes you’re the sister, sometimes the friend, sometimes the business professional, sometimes the star. Life is a stage! I enjoy every moment of it!
FB – How do you manage to remain fit and beautiful?
ES – I do not believe in spending hours over hours at the gym. I think being regular and consistent with any form of exercise is good. For me, I am more of an outdoor-person; so I like to take a walk in nature, go for a swim or do some yoga for a healthy mind and body. And I drink lots and lots of water which keeps me and my skin hydrated and healthy!
FB – Given a chance to escape from the crowd, what destination would you prefer going to? ES – Europe during the Christmas season, and SouthEast Asia for the beaches!
FB – Do you have a Mantra for life?
ES – Be the best version of yourself! This is what I strongly believe in and it keeps me on track always.
FB – Share your quick wardrobe look.
ES – A flowy comfortable dress with a denim jacket and I usually pair it up with white sneakers.
