While Bollywood has become her dream destination today, she has not forgotten her origins.
According to her, “I have lived in Odisha till I was six years old and after that, I moved to the US with my parents. But I have never been away from Odisha for long since my entire extended family lives in Bhubaneswar, Cuttack and Berhampur. Berhampur literally lives inside me as I have a part of my childhood treasured there. And since my mother is from Puri, every year we visited Odisha, a trip to Puri was also a must in the list. I particularly miss the delicious Odia food, Jagannath temple, and my hometown.
The singer has lauded the Odisha Government’s efforts in preventing the spread of the Coronavirus.
