alk­ing of the ru­mours around her iden­tity and eth­nic­ity, model-turnedac­tor An­gela Kris­linzki clar­i­fies that she’s an In­dian na­tional, with the fam­ily name Kris­linzki, be­cause of her Pol­ish fa­ther. “He’s now work­ing in Spain, but that doesn’t make me Span­ish, though I’ve lived in Spain for some time. I’m a Mum­bai girl. Main bahut achhe se Hindi mein baat kar leti hoon (I can talk very well in Hindi),” she says.

She’s up­set that “they’re chang­ing in­for­ma­tion on my Wikipedia page and it’s not un­der my con­trol”. Ap­par­ently, it says that she’s a grad­u­ate in Hindi lit­er­a­ture, “which is not true”, says An­gela. “I have a Mas­ters [de­gree] in Psy­chol­ogy and all my pro­fes­sors in col­lege (KC Col­lege, Mum­bai) can val­i­date this.”

An­gela read­ily ad­mits to par­tic­i­pat­ing in re­al­ity shows, in­clud­ing Splitsvilla, adding that the sub­ject didn’t come up ear­lier be­cause no one asked her about it. “I par­tic­i­pated in re­al­ity shows, be­sides do­ing TV com­mer­cials and movies in South [In­dia].” She ex­plains that her name “An­nie” on the show was the nick­name she had in col­lege. “When I was on the show, I was called by a cer­tain nick­name. Now that I’ve grown up, I feel I should go with the name on [my] doc­u­ments,” she says.

Squash­ing ru­mours of mul­ti­ple surg­eries to look more Cau­casian, An­gela says, “Yeah, I also read some­where that I’ve peeled some five lay­ers of my skin. I re­ally want to know from a der­ma­tol­o­gist if it’s re­ally pos­si­ble. I un­der­stand some­one peel­ing one su­per­fi­cial layer… but five? What does skin surgery re­ally mean? Peel­ing off the en­tire skin and putting [on] new skin? And where does that new skin come from?” She says that she isn’t as white as she looks in her photos. “Most girls look very dif­fer­ent in their In­sta­gram photos, so please don’t judge on that ba­sis.”
