This is produced by Arva productions. I am quite about my character. The name of my character is Nancy itself. The similarities don’t end in the name; Nancy in the movie is similar to my real the real Nancy, a bubbly happy go lucky, cheerful Malayalee girl. She is an aspiring model. I cannot reveal more about the movie, since it is a thriller. Wait for the movie to watch.
How about Kerala?
I like Kerala. I have been for many times, during my stint with Kingfisher. Then I came for Miss a Queen of India. I like weather out here, even though it raining. The nature is at its best in Kerala, the greenery, the flowers. It is very different from my home town Shimla.
