For her mature-beyond-her-years debut portrayal of a young widow in the currently running TV drama Ishq Ka Rang Safed

Your role models
Priyanka Chopra (whose role in Barfi! inspired her to become an actor), and my dad.

If not an actor
My choices have changed a lot through the years…a fashion designer to a doctor to an engineer…. At some point I also wanted to be an air hostess or pursue mass communication. Today, I’m an actress.

On similarities with her character Dhani
In the beginning we were complete opposites but now, five to six months later, I feel like we’re closer than I thought…sometimes I feel like I’m less of Eisha and more of Dhani. I also love it when people call me by my character’s name.

On facing the camera for the first time
Though I have faced the camera in the past, being the lead alongside so many experienced actors in Ishq Ka Rang Safed (IKRS) makes things a little different. I was also in a new city, with new people and in a new environment.

When not acting
I play basketball and also love spending time with my four dogs back home in Bhopal.

On your bucket list
I want to travel — as much as I can, bungee and be part of a big Bollywood movie.

Dream holiday destination
Europe.

Looking forward to in 2016
I am currently concentrating on IKRS.
