How do you manage to strike a balance between your pin-up girl image and that of a global brand ambassador for a liquor brand?
I fit in really well between both roles because they work on similar grounds. Both of my roles/avatars revolve around showcasing the glamourous and the good life, both focus on giving pleasure and on both grounds I stand unique in front of the world.
How do you manage to always stay so glamorous?
Well that’s a secret (gives us a naughty smirk), so shh. You have got to have a little bit of luck and a little bit of good looks to stay that way.
50 Shades Of Grey has taken the whole world by storm, do you think it’s blown out of proportion?
Honestly, I have not read the series, but it seems great that women around the world are coming out of the closet and adding a lot of glamour on these lines. A woman’s perception will always sound classier and people will be more intrigued by the same.
Ooh, so are you hinting at doing something similar in the near future?
Well, yes. I am doing my own research for an erotic novel. And I’m sure people will love it.
And what has been your inspiration to become who you are?
As a kid I always wanted to be unique in whatever I do. I dreamt of being glamorous and sensual in my own way and here I am today.
So what is your favorite cocktail made with Cointreau?
I am big Margarita fan. If you are serving me Cointreau then it better be my favorite cocktail called the Cointreau Sutra.
And do we get a date with you if we make you the Cointreau Sutra?
Well, only if you make it my way.
You were in a serious relationship with a girl when you were 20, right? How was it? Is it better being with a man or woman?
I was seeing this girl for just about two months, so it’s a long gone story. And after that it was MEN all the way for me. Though I can’t comment about the other side now as I don’t want to sound judgmental and don’t want to offend anyone.
So Lesbianism – what are your thoughts on that?
(Laughs) Not equipped to answer that.
We hear you’re a vintage collector and own a 1946 Ford and a 1938 Packard One Two Eight – what fascinates you the most about these cars?
I have an eye for perfection and that’s what these cars are all about. What really fascinates me is that even the slightest of details in these cars are handmade and done up beautifully. The vintage era always had things so much classier and suave than what we get today. These cars define who I am and for me it’s of utmost importance that I drive in these cars.
You are going gaga over Indian sarees, will we get to see you in an Indian avatar at one of your shows?
I totally love the Indian saree. It’s a dress that adds a lot of glamour in a subtle way to someone’s personality. I will have to work things out to flaunt a saree in one of my shows, though it’s something that I would definitely want to do.
Bigg Boss is the Indian version of the famous reality TV show Big Brother – if you were contacted by the organisers, will you want to be a part of it?
Reality TV shows are for people whose career are heading towards an end, and as of now I am far far away from that situation.
Last one: How is that you always look so fresh and beautiful?
I guess it’s because of my mother. She still looks young and is definitely beautiful.
