We all know that people from the hills hardly exercise and we eat a lot of rice. For me, to be a model, that was a difficult part. To eat a lot of rice was definitely hard but over the years, I have realised that, you just need to push yourself, eat whatever you want and exercise a lot but of course try to eat healthy, because there are a lot of healthy options that we can eat. So now, my focus is on eating healthy and exercising a lot.

The name struck. Chikoo. Virat didn’t mind it all.
