We heard you were in a Bollywood movie!
My friend was producing a movie called Tenn Patti, and I was told, "Oh, come to the set---you'll get to see all these movie stars." I got there, and then they asked me to stand in the background, but I actually had to say lines! I never thought I would get starstruck, but sitting next to Amitabh Bachchan, I was in awe!
You work in the CFDA incubator. What's that like?
It's the best step my business could have taken. My old studio was on 73rd and Broadway. I did three collections out of there, and it was a little tight on space. We made patterns on the floor.
What's your best dish?
I do mostly Indian or Indian-influenced cuisine. I make everything from scratch. I make my own curry paste, which has to be soaked for about two days beforehand. Growing up, my mom never allowed me to cook, but once I was 24 and moved to America, she gave me wher whole box of tricks so that I could be on my own.
Which restaurants do you like?
I love Café Luxembourg. I've been going there for years.
Drink of choice?
If it's a really hot day, then I like to relax with a beer in the apartment. A nice glass of red wine is great too. Also, I like vodka. I can't drink a lot of other kinds of liquors. I never drank in India, so New York spoiled me!
