Her parents were her biggest support and motivated her to continue her education. They were always worried that she would pursue a career in entertainment and ignore education.
They were extremely proud when she received her degree in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering, especially because the degree came from a very respectable Jaypee Institute of Information Technology located in Noida.
During her time in college, she was a part of the college dance troupe and was one of the most skilled ones.
Her favorite songs for dancing were performed by Madhuri Dixit, like for example Ankhiyan Milaun Kabhi Ankhiyan Churan.

But her biggest role model is her mother Geeta who holds a Ph.D. in physics and is the first member of her family to get a Ph.D. She struggled to get there but it resulted in her being a regular professor at Delhi University.
Her mother was the one who supported her in her modeling career the most and signed a contract with the Elite modeling agency. Her father was much more reserved about it but he eventually also agreed with her choice.
