Hi Ashwati. First of all, tell us something no one else knows about you.

I couldn’t take a single decent picture in school. In fact, I hated being in front of the camera.

So, college was all work and no play?

It was quite the opposite actually. I only started modeling recently‚ but I play tennis and the piano as well. So I’ve always been busy with training or concerts, and now of course shows. But I try to balance work and play.

Are there any trips you’ve been on recently?

Nothing apart from work related stuff. But there’s probably a college trip that’s happening soon, so I’m looking forward to that. Ashwati Ramesh

Did you pick up any skills while on holiday?

I’ve always wanted to learn scuba diving, but haven’t gotten the opportunity to do so yet.

If you were to take us on a trip, where would we go?

I’m a huge adventure sports enthusiast, so I’d probably take you some place where there’s rafting, skiing and other such activities. I think the Himalayas are the best place for these pursuits. There are a lot places to travel to as well - Leh‚ Manali and Ladakh.

Is there a big dream for you at the end of the tunnel?

Definitely. Whichever field I do end up in‚ at the end of the day what matters more than anything else is that I love what I do and I have the people I love in my life. Ashwati Ramesh

Which was the last classic film you watched?

To Kill a Mockingbird.

Are there any secret passions you have?

Well I love experimenting with haircuts‚ I’ve cut my own hair a few times and it turned out to be pretty good! Although my brother wouldn’t vouch for me after this one time the haircut I gave him went bad. He had to wear a cap to school for two weeks.

Any guilty pleasures?

One of my best friends is a baker and his red velvet cupcakes are to die for. Plus he experiments on us which means we get to try his new recipes before anyone else.

Do you have a dark side? Don’t we all? What’s the most trouble you’ve ever been in?

I’ve definitely had my share of trouble‚ but for the most part I’ve managed to maintain a clean record.

How crazy do you go on a night out?

I’d probably tell you‚ if I remembered

A couple of long weekends are coming up. Have you got anything planned?

There are long weekends coming up? Haven’t made any plans‚ but I’m sure my friends will come up with something. Last minute plans always end up being so much fun.

Are you a road trip person?

I am‚ I love road trips.

Have you ever taken a road trip with a guy?

Hahaha... no, not unless I want my dad to kill the guy. I’ve mostly been on road trips with family.

Do you have any tips for us to behave while on a road trip with women?
