FHM Girlfriend: Sophie Choudry
FHM: How does it feel to be hot and famous?
Sophie Choudry: Oh gosh I never think about it like that! People find me hot which is great because women spend their whole life trying to feel and look sexy. I never thought of myself as hot. It’s only when I came to India and sat on that MTV loveline couch that overnight I was the hot new girl in the world of showbiz. I think my confidence and style was different to everyone. Maybe it was the london, Paris , desi girl mix! Feels amazing to be recognised and known but in my own eyes I’m still the same girl who needs to work a lot harder! There are definitely some perks like getting tables quicker, getting looked after a bit more wherever you go, the love and appreciation wherever you are recognised, but the work is above everything else!
A nerd from London School of Economics entered the show biz. How did that happen?
It actually happened while I was studying! I sang on made in india when I was a little school kid! After than I knew that I wanted to pursue singing seriously and I was always a filmy bachcha. Films were a dream. I never thought it would happen. I got offered a development deal for music when I was 16 in the UK but I never wanted to drop out of school. I was a straight A student who loved school and going to university was the best thing I ever did. Simultaneously I was able to record music and had a TV show in the UK on Zee TV that was a number one show for 3 years!
