It wasn’t my dream to be a pageant queen. It was just drive. I don’t like losing. They didn’t even have a swimsuit competition in Miss World. They were more focused on whether you’re a leader; how compassionate you are. At 17, I was asked to speak about the economic structures of foreign countries.
On Jennifer Aniston's takedown of the media saying she looked pregnant:
I really admire her and the fact that she called it out. We’ve been told for eons that a woman should be a certain way, dress a certain way, behave a certain way. That’s what the fight of feminism is for: we’re asking for the opportunity to make our own choices without being judged—a freedom that men have enjoyed for centuries.
On her success:
Mainstream America is getting to know me through Quantico, and now they’re discovering my Indian films. It’s such a cool cultural exchange for me, because I get people writing to me, saying, ‘We watched our first Indian movie on Netflix.’ I feel amazing that I’ve been able to introduce a new audience to those films—and an Indian audience to an American show.
