Opening up on International Dance Day about her liking for dance, the Kasauti Zindagi Ki 2 actress claimed that dance is her stressbuster and helps her loosen up. “I have never professionally trained myself in dance but I remember how my first ever dance performance in KG junior got me a lot of applause from the crowd and my fondness for dance began henceforth. I would participate in a lot of dance performances for school functions and even got a hang of choreographing many dance acts which built a stronger connection between dancing and me. Till date, I use dance as a tool to ease my stress and worries, to loosen up my body after a hard day, and to mainly let free all my emotions, be it happy or sad through dancing it out.”
