For her mellifluous voice and her performances as Mary Magdalene in Jesus Christ Superstar and as Belle in India’s first Disney musical, Beauty and the Beast

Discovery of your singing talent
I sang Somewhere Over The Rainbow at my school’s annual kindergarten talent contest…someone told my mum that I could carry a tune well for a five-year-old.

A song that describes you
In My Life by The Beatles has always been a song I’ve connected with.

Landing the lead role in Beauty and the Beast was
Like my own fairy tale.

Theatre is
A big family reunion, filled with chaos, insanity and a lot of love. It’s home.

Three iconic singers
Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Nicks, Van Morrison.

Stage fright is
For me it’s good cardio…. Doing jumping jacks always calms my nerves.

If not Belle, you’d be
Jasmine from Aladdin, for a lot of the same reasons I love Belle. They both have a lot of sass and spunk.

Dream role
Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire.

Myths about theatre you’d like to break
That experimental theatre cannot make money.

Looking forward to in 2016
Working on projects that challenge and excite me.

Catch Beauty And The Beast in Mumbai from 6th May to 15th May at SVP Stadium, Worli. Tickets available on bookmyshow.com
