IÃÂve aimed for the galas right from the very beginning. I was very confident that I would get through and now itÃÂs like a dream come true. I used to be very nervous in the piano round, but now I feel there is no place for nerves on the galas stage. The judges and the audience will expect much more from me. And I have to deliver.
I am the glam doll now
People tell me that earlier I used to look gorgeous and now I look glamorous. And I feel that myself. My hair used to fall flat and I was bored with black hair. But my new haircut and the highlights they gave me suits me a lot.
A conscious change
I used to be very shy and reserved. When I first came here, I did not talk to anyone. I would just stick with a few of my close friendsÃÂPurnima, Keshav and Tulika. Then I told myself, ÃÂthis is not rightÃÂ, IÃÂm a part of this family. People won`t connect to me if I remained a wallflower.
As a singer, I was not very confident earlier. I used to forget lyrics. I used to look depressed and sad on stage, and my face never had any expressions. Now I practice in front of the mirror and that has really helped me.
