In case you are interested, here are a few facts about me!

  3. I’m 100% Indian, specifically Sindhi.
  4. I’ve never lived in India and my last holiday there was 6 years ago and I only visit when there is a Big Fat Indian Wedding to attend.
  5. Apparently I don’t look Indian. I blame the extremely pale skin with naturally golden-brown hair. People claim I look Mexican, Egyptian, Greek amongst others.

  14. I am a Bollywood fanatic and my ultimate dream is to meet Shahid Kapoor was to meet Shahid Kapoor (I love you!).
  15. I used to be a Bollywood DJ in university and would love to study it professionally.
  16. I am a dog lover and I still tear up whenever I think of my 1st dog Lara.
  17. I’m a tomboy at heart and my for me style means comfort.
  18. That being said, I love getting “Dolled” up and evening gowns are my favorite indulgences.
  19. My biggest indulgence has been my car: a red BMW Z4 I call Laila that has been featured in Gulf News’ Wheels magazine.
  20. I’m a techie at heart and a die-hard Apple fangirl.
  21. I have an allergy to gluten, details of which you can find here.
