Ac­tor and en­tre­pre­neur Say­ali Bha­gat (right) shifted to Delhi post her mar­riage to Delhi-based busi­ness­man Navneet Pratap Singh in De­cem­ber 2013. And she says she has fi­nally learned her way around the Cap­i­tal. “When I had shifted too Delhi, I would de­pend on mo­bile apps and maps on my phone to reach a cer­tain place. Some­times I would just go round and round these round­abouts and even get lost. Then, peo­ple at home would con­stantly ask if I needed help with di­rec­tions ... in case I was lost again,” laughs Say­ali.

How­ever, she has be­come quite a Dil­li­wala now, and can take peo­ple around the city on her own. “I’m now pretty good with di­rec­tions, and can even guide oth­ers,” says Say­ali, who runs an im­age con­sult­ing and skill-im­part­ing in­sti­tute.

There is more that has got the for­mer beauty queen in love withh the Cap­i­tal. “Ev­ery­one in Mum­bai would tell me that Delhi has an ex­treme cli­mate. And when I came here, I took some­time to get used to the su­per hot sum­mer and ex­tremely cold win­ter. It was a chal­lenge. But I later re­alised that it is a very cool thing, be­cause my wardrobe has so much va­ri­ety. I now have a chance to wear clothes that I could never wear back in Mum­bai ... all the jack­ets, sweaters and muf­flers. Delhi has be­come a com­fort­able, lov­ing home now,” says the The Train ac­tor, who is also shoot­ing for Kan­nada, Marathi, Tel­ugu and Pun­jabi films. “I’m look­ing for­ward to my films and also con­cen­trat­ing on my in­sti­tute here in Delhi. So, life is quite busy,” she says.
