During her trip to India, she apparently stated that she likes Bollywood and has seen Slumdog Millionaire five times. She also met fashion photographer Atul Kasbekar. He says, “She was cool to talk to, we spoke for about 10 minutes.

She even took my camera and clicked pictures. However, we did not talk about soccer at all, even though she is Cristiano’s girlfriend and I am a huge fan of the game.”
